it is better than random violence imo.
I don't agree at all. A spank on the bottom is much better than something so premeditated
It makes you wonder why some people have kids.
So parents should just go around giving their children a spank on the bottom whenever they feel like it?
I wouldn't hit my child but i can see the argument for spanking a kid if he has been bold. It's negative reinforcement and the child will know that his action receives a negative reaction. It doesn't always work though which is why I wouldn't spank my child
Not really a punishment but my mum used to force my brother and I to go outside to "enjoy the sunshine" when we were playing the Playstation for too long.
To defy her, my brother and I would go outside, walk around to the garage and just sit in the garage doing nothing till we were allowed back in to to play the Playstation.
How can you jail people who haven't been convicted of carrying out any crime? Reasonable chastisement is still legal, believe it or not.
My Dad use to take my Amiga 500 games and lock them in his press, He would give me some on saturdays (ONLY AFTER 4 HOURS OF HOUSEWORK) 1 Hour 30 mins with a selection of only 3 game disks. Used to take me ages to think which ones i would choose
If i did extra chores he would allow some extra time. 15 - 30 mins
I take your point but its not reasonable its not reasonable at all, its sadistic as I said already.
It is very reasonable. A mild spanking and a rub of paste. When I was young I would have been much more severely punished if i had behaved like that.
I don't think that is the law though. Look at THE KING v. DONOVAN
2 K.B. p 498
Do you call being walloped on your bare bottom with a heavy leather strap reasonable? That is what I and my three sisters used to get from our mom. Hand spanking until about 8 or 9. Hairbrush until about 12 or 13 and after that the strap. One day my older sister, when she was 17, bought some sweets with change she was supposed to bring back to mom. In order to make an example of her for stealing, she was spanked in front of us. Her bottom was purple after the strap. Then she had the paste put on. We were all terrified.
