    Are children better off without physical punishments?

    Are they?

    Scenario 1:
    Your child is sent home from school because he or she keeps spitting in people's faces. You tell your child to stop spitting on people, and a few seconds later, your child spits in your spouse's or husband or wife's face. Do you think it would be best if you physically punished your child or took your child to the higher ups which may say your child has behavioral problems or worse, has mental problems?

    Do you think it is beneficial to take your belt off and beat the crap out of your child's bottom? Or are other punishments more effective?

    Physical punishment is the only kind of punishment I endured as a child, and it always worked on me.

    But it depends on the child, some become even more enraged when they are punished physically, others learn to avoid it by doing as they are told.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    I don't like the fact that people have gotten soft on punishment. Some kids do have mental problems but most need a swift kick in the butt. No where near every child who acts up has any kind of mental problem. They're being a little brat. It's all about how the kid is raised. If I had ever pulled crap like that I'd get a very sore tush.

    Parents are there to be your parents and set you straight not to be your friend and reason with you. So for me the kid gets a sore butt. Of course nowadays you have to be careful or else child protective services will get a call for normal parenting.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Okay, question, would you physically punish a kid with a mental problem, like ADHD and etc?

    I fully support physical punishment, and it was me in the example of the OP, yes I would beat the crap out of them.

    Such a backwards concept, glad my parents weren't barbaric enough to beat me as a kid. I still turned out fine without it. Raising your hand to a child means you have lost control IMO.

    Rarely got hit but when I did I deserved it. Too many liberal flowery skirt types interfering with parenting methods.
    I wish I knew what it was like 50 years ago to see the differences.

    I think only if there is no other good way to punish then let the belting begin. When it comes to a mentally problematic kids then of course not. When it comes to ADHD i think the doctors have gone nuts. There is such thing as a kid full of energy and hopped up on sugar

    beat when they need it. not a close handed kind of beat but if you need to get a belt then by all means. the US has gone really soft on this beating thing. think of it this way, when kids got beat we weren't seen as the fat country. not many kids that get beat end up fat. kinda goes likethis

    without beating:
    "dad:son eat your broccoli.
    son:F u dad!
    dad: my kid is out of control and has a mental problem
    kid avoids eating healthy"

    with beating:
    dad: son eat your vegetables
    son: F you dad
    dad: WHAT?!?!?! i'm getting the belt
    son: NOOOO!!! i'm eating them i'll eat them
    kid eats healthy

    parents beat your kids, it's for their health

    Same as any kid, my parents just used normal/proper punishments though like restrictions and groundings. I probably would have acted up more if they did something crazy like beat me.

    Spanking your child is not a bad thing. Simply telling your kid to go to his room doesn't ever work half as often as you'd like it to. Another thing I have learned is that raising your voice is another great way to get your child's attention. I do the same with my animals (to a lesser extent) and it works great. My animals no what to do and what not to do. I don't have to worry about my food being stolen if I abandon it although they stil beg, lol.

    Given NO child is the same and all children respond differently, saying 'same as any kid' isn't that descriptive...
    if I am in the PS3 or 360 section I will NOT post about the competitor just to please people, if you want to know what I think about the competitor link me to a thread in the appropriate section

    I have babysitted a lot of children. It's more than what most can say.

    And like Funeralfog, I was physically disciplined growing and it works. Although our father had more than just spankings for us at times. One time I made a BIG $#@!-up, and my father took me to his work and had me lay in front-lay-and-rest for a few hours. XD

    I'm fine with physical punishment but not beating a kid. It's fine for a parent to whip a disrespectful kid's ass or slap them in the mouth if they misbehave badly.

    this is more what i meant with my post before. against drawing blood or bruising or trying to cause extreme physical harm, but a smack upside the head always works, smack across the backside with a belt (yes a belt, it's not as bad as it sounds trust me, i've experienced the sting first hand)

    I'm all for it. As long as it doesn't get excessive and become abuse. Nothing wrong with a belt to their ass when they don't want to listen, or a slap to the mouth when they cuss. I was disciplined as such as a kid and although I don't have kids yet myself, I do have 9 nephews and nieces.
