40 only for some children. Some children would say "I don't give a fuck" and "I'm grown, I could do whatever I want" because some children couldn't careless if they are respected and won't show respect back. Not trying to pull a "bankrupt" here but my little brother who is six treats everyone like crap no matter how nice, mean or any other thing to him.
49- I agree with you completely. I have seen too many bad situations like that. My fiancé and I just split 2 weeks ago because of his 11 year old son. He would always swing at me and smack me and spit on me. And he didn't care when or where he did it or who he was in front of. And the same goes for my 17 year old sister and my mother. The amount of disrespect in the younger generation is appalling! It, truly, is a heartbreaking situation. No matter how much respect you give them, they only spit on you. Literally, in my case!
It's because of the stupid gov't laws that prevent parents from beating the shite out of their evil kids that the world is so messed up now. 50 years ago people could smack their kid to teach the lesson that being a shit has repercussions, and they learned a modicum of respect for their elders... Nowadays you can't even raise your voice to them. See how kids acted then compared to now? Doesn't look like a coincidence does it? :p
GhyWow why does everybody tell people they should beat the shit out of there kids...? Raise them right in the first place, don't let them be subjected to the bullshit they learn it from, and in cases where you can't control what they are subjected to maybe a spanking or a light tap in the face depending on the age...or other punishments like grounded from friends, internet, cell phone... Kids hate that stuff and it limits the shit they can get subjected to. Beating them will only push them away and can cause them to be violent themselves. Plus once parents get into the habit of beating there kids, it likely will get worse... Then you hear stories how a kid back talked to their father and the 12 year old boy got broken ribs and facial bones..
99- I agree fully with the first part about punishments. If one should hit their child at all they should AT LEAST be grounded for a while. If that doesn't work, then increase the period of time and add in a little "respect my authority" spanking. Children now a days act out because their parents are way too lenient. But @99, your example was out of line. A beating or to hit a child must be a consequence of his/her acting wrongful or disrespectful, not because "aww, my favorite team lost!".
When I was younger, my mom had "the spoon." It was wooden spoon and she'd smack us with it if we were disrespectful or something. So whenever we did something that was bad, she'd take it out and we'd be wonderful kids. It worked to a point but then I went through that "idgaf" phase and didn't care. Now, I love and respect my parents so much, they are the best. But the point is, hitting won't get your point across. I realize now what I did was wrong but before that, it wasn't explained to me so I didn't care if I did it or not, even if I got hurt for it. Does this make sense? I'm terrible at writing out my thoughts.

Ahm, I actually have a brother who is 12 which isn't much older than 11, and he knows very well that rabbits don't lay eggs. I think we're underestimating OP at age 11, but I believe 99% of 11 year olds know rabbits don't lay eggs. As to whether pumpkins grow on trees or not, that's a little bit different.
Well, it's your job to raise her.
Which came first, the rabbit or the egg? ... Yeah that doesn't sound right
