Which do you think is more abuse, rearing a child with a switch or letting them away with time out.
up to the parents!!!
That wasn't the question.
I don't think either is particularly abusive. It depends on the parent and depends on the child.
I didn't use a switch or a time out and my kids turned out fine
anyone who hits kids with anything other than their own hand is an asshole.
Anyone who beats a child deserves to be beaten himself.
So you'd rather teach the child its o k to beat someone?
When you smack the bottom of a two year old whos about to touch the hot stove then you can feel the pain in your hand and KNOW how hard you hit them.
If you hit a kid with an inanimate object you can not decern the level of pain you have just administered.
I only hit a kid in a situation like that.
There is a current study that says children who were spanked ( but not beyond the age of 6) were happier adults.
The message the child get is what counts.
