Which brings to light the REAL f#cking problem. You can't spank a kid anymore, because if you do and the kid doesn't sue you, someone else with some spare time will! Too many bleeding-heart, soft-minded idiots in this world that think spanking a kid is bad. I have ZERO respect for any parent that doesn't spank their kids, I also have no sympathy when their kid steals a car and kills somebody, or "accidentally" shoots their little brother, or whatever stupid activity the "unsupervised little angel" does.<br><br><br>CreativeGuy: Design software tips, tricks & commentary.

i was not spanked and my wife was not disciplined in this manner either. both of us stayed out of trouble and turned out quite well. we'll never spank our kids and so far we've had very good results compared to the friends of our kids. further, after all of these years, there is no research to show that corporal punishment is effective. <br><br>personally, i don't think spanking is bad, per se; i do think it's a failure in parenting. i don't respect anyone who feels the need to resort to spanking because they've failed to adequately parent otherwise. parenting is hard; spanking is easy and quick.<br><br>--<br>Straw-man rhetorical techniques are the practice of refuting weaker arguments than one's opponents offer. 2 "set up a straw man" or "set up a straw-man argument" is 2 create a position easily refuted, then attribute that position to your opponent.
Some kids don't need to be spanked, that's for sure. <br><br>However, different kids turn out differently.

that's just it . . . when kids get to the point where they look like they "need" to be spanked, it is almost always because of a failure in parenting along the way. those parents need to take a little time out of their busy schedules and spend time with their children; they need to be very consistent in their parenting -- when they make threats (e.g., "stop doing that or i'll take your toy away," or "i won't let you go outside later"), they probably don't follow through and kids learn to press their luck a little more each time. there are also some kids who have chemical imbalances and will end up being diagnosed with an emotional and/or behavior disorder when in school . . . there is much research that shows that when these kids are spanked, they learn to use more violence when they themselves feel wronged by others. sort of a catch-22.<br><br>--<br>Straw-man rhetorical techniques are the practice of refuting weaker arguments than one's opponents offer. 2 "set up a straw man" or "set up a straw-man argument" is 2 create a position easily refuted, then attribute that position to your opponent.

This is a bad situation. No one did the right thing. I saw one of the guys in the car on the news and he is a teenager so it's not like a grown man chased a kid. I think they felt really bad as well. Absolutely no winners here. Sad deal. The 17 year old girl that hit the kid with her car is devastated as well. Monday we will see what the charges are. Also they showed one of the kids throwing bottle rockets and not once did he ever own up to the fact that they should not have been doing that. Not in the interview I saw anyway.(It's on the news on every channel) He talked about how scared they were but seemed to treat it like they were innocent victims. That's not good either.<br><br>
