#89 - When I was a kid if I did something to warrant it, my dad would give me a hard smack on the ass, there tended not to be repeats of my misdeeds, so it did the trick. But I can tell you now it certainly wasn't child abuse. It never hurt past about 5 minutes later, there was very rarely a mark and I knew it would only happen if I was being a little shit. As a teenager if I was a lippy cow my mom would give me a slap, again it was only done if I deserved it, and I never felt that I was being unfairly punished, I knew that if they hit me then I'd crossed a line, it was never done because they were in a bad mood, or I had irritated them. Corporal punishment is NOT child abuse, and those that think it is are sadly sheltered. A little bit of fear is healthy.
rereading this from the random fmls... it's so fucking messed up how some parents think that's how you raise a kid. it's not an acceptable way to negotiate a relationship with anyone else in your life...why does the fact that they're small and still learning somehow make it acceptable? why is it OK because they can't hit you back? I wouldn't slap an employee for being a little shit. thatd be wrong.
Slap their mother?!? Jesus Christ, did respect for parents just go out the fucking window? Boy or girl you never slap your mother! Especially boys, you should never hit a lady. Ever! You number 10, are obviously one of those kids that was spoiled to the max and was never punished with a smack across the ass. Child abuse you might say. It's called raising your kid right so they would never even Think to hit their own mother. I've lost faith in humanity because you said that #10....
I'd call that assault. I'm sure that the police would like to hear about that.
No, they wouldn't. It doesn't sound like the police are really necessary at the moment, but familial abuse is illegal, and serious. The police don't laugh at a man or woman claiming their spouse is abusing them, they won't laugh at a son or daughter claiming their parent is abusing them, regardless of age.
