~Parental Discipline: How Did Your Parents Discipline You As A Child . . . ?~

How did your parents discipline you as a child . . .?

From what age did the discipline start and at what age did it end . . .?

Did they ever flog/cane/hit you . . .? If yes, how often . . .?

it all depends on WHEN and WHERE you grew up. SOME OF the corporal punishment that we call CHILD ABUSE today was not seen as child abuse in the 80s or before it was called "disciplining" your child. today you can smack your child and go to jail even if that child did something INCREDIBLY crazy.

we all know that some parents are out of line with the punishment they inflict on their children but i think some children need to be spanked and put back in line.

i know from experience that beating your child black and blue doesnt help ALL THE TIME,but in some cases, it is a necessity and makes wonders!

to each their own!

My dad was a disciplinarian to the core. His punishments range from severe beating to hunger strike. Sometimes we’ll be forced to sleep outside to ‘appreciate the blessing of having a roof over my head’. I hated those days because in the end, I know what made me to be who I am today and it aint no beatings or punishments.

Westerners are not gods and if they behave stupidly they can be called silly.

My mom used anything. Shoes, pots, pans, spatula, handbag, electric cord etc. She would have thrown the couch at you if she could

My mom brought me up with the "3 chances" method.

"I'll tell you once, I'll tell you twice. The third time I have to tell you again, the consequence will be yours".

As if, she'll happily say it the 5th time sef.

This thread shouldn't have been locked. There's a difference between "how did your parents bring you up" and "how should a child be brought up". Who locked it?

It already exists! And family matters should be posted in Family!
