    They don't expect to be attacked by the entity that's otherwise nurturing them. That's a mixed message if ever there was one.

    Your personal masochistic fantasies that "kids are asking for it", trust me they're not shared by many. But it is strikingly akin to the rationalization of the rapist.

    My parents never told me it was wrong to hit someone.
    I am unsure why some people seem to think that parents that spank their kids also tell their kids it is wrong to hit someone. Maybe it is just a liberal meme.

    See, hitting someone is a relative term.
    And sometimes hitting someone is the right thing to do.

    If yer 14 years old and some asshole decides he wants to bully you, you stop him, and sometimes those idiots need a punch in the face for your point to get across. I guess the alternative is that you can continue to be a wimp and get bullied. Then snivel about bullying.

    As for disciplining children, things vary by kid. My eldest daughter absolutely hated "time out", so that was an effective means of discipline for her. The youngest would just take a nap if she was put in "time out", so it was completely ineffective for discipline for her.

    The best part from you is this,
    If I had a dollar for every person that said that, then smacked their child, I'd probably be a billionaire.

    Yer a bit on the extreme side.
    What other actions do you think warrant the death penalty? Just curious.

    Treason, child molestation, corruption of a public official, and election fraud.

    That's a bit like saying the Pacific is a bit on the wet side.

    I can agree with those.
    Spanking is a bit different

    It's amazing how far gone this nation is, and it is evident big time by some of these responses that are viewed here. WOW!
