Growing up, I was the eldest child.
Yes, my dad and mom gave me hidings and let me tell you something, I am not evil, I am not violent, I am not withdrawn into my own world of depression because of it. Actually quite the opposite.
I love people, I love children, I respect all living things and I was never ever a bully.
Should my child disrespect a woman or adult or me or his dad, he is spoken to and if he does not listen, yes I give one smack on the bum and send him to his room. He will then come out and admit what he did was wrong and apologise.
My son will not grow up to be a violent person, he will will not bully your child in school, he will not rape or hurt women, he will respect your daughter. He will protect your daughter and their children.
The government of this country are raising criminals, the good parents of this country want to raise good men and women, we are not abusing our kids at all.
One spank on the bottom is NOT CHILD ABUSE.
