People are funny. why is cerebral palsy brought up? because this will make people more sorry and against physical punishment?
yeah, people who consider this abuse are crazyOriginally Posted by dormouse
You enjoyed watching a teenaged girl get beaten? And all of us who are disgusted by parents abusing their children are "crazy"?
it isn'y much worse and it doesn't have to break skinOriginally Posted by AlixJ18
Being whipped by a belt is not spanking though i'm not in favor of either this was worse, flogging doesn't look like it would be that bad, yet it breaks the skin makes people bleed and leaves scars.

And also, I don't give a **** what anyone says, and I'm normally not someone to come out and say that an anonymous person on the internet has severe issues, but Ira, please recheck your thinking, and that kind of thinking does make you or anyone who actually thinks like that (and I still hope you're kidding) unfit to be a parent. This clearly crosses the line between discipline and abuse.
While I never had cerebral palsy, I was whipped often by my father growing up for things such as wearing shorts to school on a sweltering hot day in a non-airconditioned school when he insisted on me wearing pants. He clearly enjoyed it. I cannot bring myself to watch the video, as I know that it will trigger my PTSD.
Sadly though, it does seem to be very acceptable in states like Texas (I grew up in Tennessee and Indiana, close enough) to use hitting to discipline your kids. During the final days of me living in the US, it was a sickening cycle that I would start to make friends with someone, at age 29 most of my peers would have at least one kid, the kid would have been put to bed but might have needed to get up because they were deprived of attention, scared of nightmares, their room was too hot, whatever, and before being allowed to speak the kid would be screamed at with something along the lines of "Go to bed or you're getting a spanking! 1....2....3...." This and plenty of studies have shown that physical discipline creates MORE behavioral problems! But of course, hit the kid for these behavioral problems, of course it's ok, they're only a child!
Now, I live in Holland, where it is a criminal offense to spank your child. So thankfully, when my boyfriend and I are ready to have kids, we can raise them without being criticized for being bad parents because we believe that hitting children is wrong.
lol, of course she waited for 7 years. she wanted to use him as much as she could. and she didn't go to authorities because she knew that nothing bad happened there but the child worshipping crowd on youtube will make a big fuss over it
