General How should a parent discipline their children?

seriously, spanking is in not a form of abuse.

even non-excessive slapping isn't an abuse either.

otherwise abuse is such a weak word that it can be totally fine. It then will be stepped over all the time, but that doesn't really mean anything.

Spanking and slapping is not an abuse. And if I say spanking, slapping, smacking = all the same thing. It means using your hand and swiping it at a target location on the child with light to medium force, but not even close enough to say a punch.
Like I said before, it's for the attention getter. You can't slowly develop something if they don't start developing it in the first place, and you need a sudden start.

Depends on the age really. It gets to a point where hitting isn't a great idea, and too much hitting can be bad mentally for the child. If you punish them without physically hitting them, then you take away everything, often strip away the key things they do, and make sure they regret getting into trouble.

Of course if its just a slap on the wrist that can be ran around, it won't be effective. its the parents being too soft.

Honestly hitting your child was big in the old days. Not much anymore. A smack on the behind to get the point across when punishing. Even threatening with something big to smack them with, and intimidate them with it (But not using it at all, more of a bluff).


On a side note, its legal as long as it doesnt leave any marks (Such as cuts, bruises, broken bones) I've heard a sheriff himself say so :p.

So you can be creative, though it won't be illegal or abuse.

Post in the anime section, or die.
it was big in the old days, because it worked. People are too scared to discipline their child nowadays.

I keep popping up on this site from time to time.

It's not that they're scared to discipline, it that they're scared about going to jail, or having the kids taken away.

My dad used to beat my ass on a regular basis. I was a bad kid apparently :) I do not spank my kids. Never have and never will which I guess is a good thing because they are adults now :)

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
