I can't believe...
My dad just hit me
So there's still a chance it's butter.
here come the "back in my day" replies....
i know this kid that lies about every thing. ill give you examples.
1. he fist fought his dad outside in the middle of winter when its like 0 degrees out, and the only reason they stopped and went inside is because it was cold.
2. hes 18 years old, and he does ufc in las vegas. he goes to tournaments there almost every weekend, yet he doesnt have any bruises, scratches, etc. he lives in iowa.
3. he once saved a baby from a mountain lion by wrestling the mountain lion.
4. he once got shot in the shoulder, but doctors and technology are so advanced these days that he doesnt have a scar from it.
5. he was addicted to heroin and he quit cold turkey.
i dont know why i posted this. maybe because you and your dad reminded me of him and his dad.
So? what's so unbelievable about it?
Define "hit". Did you deserve to be "hit"?
if you can't believe that you're parents hit you(suggesting they don't do it much), you probably more or less deserved drastic measures
No one deserves to be hit unless it's in self-defense (in other words, person A got hit because they hit person B first; they also hit B hard enough to make B think that his life was in danger; only then would striking another person be considered acceptable and legal). People lose their tempers all the time but that doesn't justify violence...that's why we have laws against assault.
When a parent strikes a child, the child draws one of three conclusions: 1) violence is an acceptable way to deal with frustrations; 2) I'm a terrible child and I deserve to be hit; or 3) my parents are terrible people. None of these conclusions is acceptable (although the argument could be made in defense of #3, particularly if the violence is pervasive and constant) and a child and a parent must both learn that violence is not an answer.
You better start believing it, junior. I've got a lot more punchasizing where that one came from if you keep flappin' yer gums.
Fabio is incredulous.
Dude. Don't have kids. Ever.
Feeling a bit sarky right now
Why? My parents never struck me or my siblings and let's see how badly we turned out: I'm in medical school, my brother's a successful IT specialist, the older of my two younger sisters is in dental school, and my youngest sister's in a nursing program...not one of us has had a run-in with the law and not one of us is emotionally scarred. Yeah, I guess I might have turned out better if I had been beaten when I was bad.
I can totally understand the shock man. If one of my parents hit me Id be in complete shock. My parents have never raised a hand on me before, and Im totally against using violence against kids.
My parents have done an excellent job or raising me without using force.
Im sorry man, mind telling us a little more though?
Your family like to help out much?
Hey necro, wanna help me with a medical question -_-
I almost got shot my one of my step-dads. Well its was loaded, and pointed towards my chest...oh and he was drunk and pissed. So thats why I said "almost".
My mom hit me once when I was little, pretty hard, but it didn't make me think that she or I were terrible people or that hitting would solve my problems. She was instantly regretful and I recognized that she had lashed out without thinking. I forgave her soon after it happened and our relationship was no worse for it.
From the information you've given us, little though it is, it seems like your dad acted out of character. He probably is sorry for what he did; you should consider forgiving him.
I think it's okay to hit your kids. Studies have shown that a consistent and proportionate amount of physical pain, coupled with an explanation of the punishment among other punishments are the most effective to teach a child boundaries and effects of their actions. IMO kids today are too freaking snotty and are such little punks BECAUSE they have nothing to fear. There is a difference between child abuse and physical punishment.
