Onnidan what are your thoughts on spanking?
« on: March 17, 2017, 12:09:15 PM »
Seems that many  black millennials think this a a barbaric practice with roots is slavery, or worse.

Is this an old school practice that needs to be placed in the past?

I often wonder if spanking is due to a learned behavior or is it truly due to a child doing something bad. Perhaps both?

Proverbs 13:24

"Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them."

IMO, when used as a tool of deterrent and discipline, spanking a child is perfectly fine.

I don't really see how spankings are very effective. Most bad adults got the hell beat out them when they were kids. I have some cousin who were spanked-beatened, and they grew up to become little outlaws. My well grounded friends did not go through this. My parents only had to do it once or twice to the older ones, and the rest of got the message.

there is a difference between abuse and non-abuse.  Some kids need their little hides "tanned" every now and again.  Some don't because they aren't hell bent on "trying" their parents like I know you probably did.  I'm sure your parents would beat you now with some of the things you have alluded to on this site.

See nothing wrong with it, but it can't be the only tool in your parental arsenal. 

If all you do is beat the child, it becomes less effective and they become immune to it. My parents used more than one form of discipline - taking away priveleges, extra chores etc.  But they would light your @zz up if need be.

First of all the aforementioned “rod” is not the rod of a stick to beat your child with, it is the rod as in “thy rod and thy staff comfort me,” the familiar refrain from the 23rd Psalm. In other places, particularly throughout all of Psalms, the rod is referred to as strength as in, “the Lord is my rod and fortress,” as mentioned in Psalm 18:2 and 31:3. Or “He is my rod and my salvation,” in Psalm 61:2 and 62:6. Throughout Genesis in particular we get references to the rod as a sceptre or staff that is carried by royalty, Pharaohs, and enlightened spiritual beings like Moses or Gods like Zeus.

Perhaps most significant is the staff of Moses, actually called a rod in the King James Version of the Bible. This rod was used to perform miracles of profound spiritual significance. This Moses’ rod or staff was used to produce water from a rock, transformed into a snake to swallow an enemy snake, and ultimately used to part the Red Sea. Moses was seen carrying this rod in all significant and important matters of spiritual accomplishments and rituals.

In other words throughout scripture the rod was symbolic and representative of strength, power and spiritual transformation. So the real meaning of “spare the rod and spoil the child,” is that if you spare the rod of spiritual knowledge, insight and transformation to your child, they’ll be spoiled rotten.” In other words, without spiritual knowledge your children will be worthless. They need spiritual knowledge and insight in order to be the very best that they can be. Without this “rod” of strength, insight and spiritual awareness they’ll be lost in the world and of no good to anyone.

In other words, nowhere in the Bible does it actually say, “get a rod and beat your kid or they’ll be spoiled.” It’s not literally talking about a physical rod, stick, bat, tree branch, golf club or any other hard physical instrument with which to beat your kid. This is al the speculation and interpretation of minds that know no better and are looking for ways to justify their lack of alternative ways of raising children without beating them. Most of this thinking and actions are based on the way in which they were raised.

Though I was raised by grandparents in the 50's, 60's they did not beat or spank. I have 4 adult children and I did not spank them and they are all doing well.

NOW, you come along with a good argument.  Where were you when I needed you when my hide was being tanned?   :lol:

Jokes aside, that is compelling.

I also think you have to know your child. 

My parents didn't have to spank me as much because I responded to words - you fuss at me wrong and I would cry - hated for my parents to be upset with me.

My sister responded more to the taking away of privileges.   

My brother?   He was bad as hell.   Whipping his behind got his attention more than anything else.

Even with that, they switched it up with the 3 of us.  He didn't get beat all the time, and sometimes my sister and I felt that belt or switch.
