Problem....PROBLEM....oh yeah, there is a problem here alright!!!!!

The problem lies with the "bleeding heart, tree hugging, do gooder, minority groups (most of who are single or have same sex partners)" that are trying to justify their existence by ensuring that their beliefs are shoved down the throats of everyone else. They are nothing more than oxygen thieves...a waste of space and rations!!! Because they are part iof a minority group, and they make a lot of noise in the right place at the right time, they are listened to by politicians that want votes. As we all know...it is the squeaky wheel that gets the grease!!!

I am extremely opposed, some would say violently opposed, to these "bleeding heart" morons going into schools and telling the students that they have rights....most of which don't allow their parents, or any other authority figure to chastise them or pull them into line before they go off the tracks completely. Mad

Damn, I gotta get off this soapbox...I'm getting bloody cranky!! Evil or Very Mad

Liberal, Bleeding Heart Democrates. Like Vince I was grown by 1963, but saw the change with great anger. I took many a trip to the woodshed with my dad when I was growing up and I used a belt on my own 5 kids. Funny...They all came out normal and they still love me and send me the grandchildren.

I wasn't alive back then either, but growing up in the 80s-90s even...my dad would get me good if I screwed up. I turned out just fine. It drives me crazy seeing people with screaming kids in public and all they do is just calmly ask their 4 yr old if they wouldn't mind being quiet. Yeah, a 4 yr old is going to do that. Belts were made for a reason other than holding pants up!

Interestinger and interestinger,

I was 5 in '63, my dad died a year later. My Mom had a strap you could hone a straight razor on, most times all she had to do was show it to me. Most times (ouch!) Both of my boys got their backsides warmed a time or two and last week my son came home to get Dad's help in raising his daughter.hmmmm....

I wholeheartedly agree with Vince's assessment (which I'm sure suprises the hell out of everyone Laughing ) There's a limited supply of oxygen in this world and some folks are just a waste of said oxygen.

Yep I agree with the paddling you speak of. My sibblings and I got our share when we were growing up and so did my kids. We all grew up just fine knowing right from wrong and with respect for others and their poroperty.

Some people are just a waste of skin.

Both my parents "tanned" my butt when it was necessary....which unfortunately was all too often......but I learnt...eventually....to do the right thing. I have grown up okay, in fact I'm a Justice of The Peace and assist the Police with juveniles, so it didn't do me any harm.

My kids learnt the value of the strap or a well placed hand delivered with the appropriate amount of force, until those aforementioned morons got into them at school. That was pretty much the end of my authority.

Kids are all grown up now, well the youngest was 17 yesterday, and the two oldest are always asking questions on how to bring up their kids. Must be some value to a little "contact counselling". Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Cheers, Vince

Well, I am new to this site, but this is a topic I am familiar with. I was born in the early 70's and lost my father at an early age. So my Mom was the "enforcer" and we all learned at an early age do no mess with the enforcer. I hate the fact that kids today think if thier parent give them a small attitude adjustment they should call the cops. I tried that once as a kid, the line "if you hit me I'll call the cops" came out of my mouth. My mother put a phone down in front of me and said " call an ambulance too, it will be a few minutes before the cops can get here".

That is something i will never forget, and i think i turned out ok. I consider myself a decent contributing member of society. But when tree huggers run society you can see what we get.

By the way its still legal to give Corporal Punishment to your kids in Canada:

Quote::
Such debates, however, do not always lead to the banning of domestic corporal punishment and The Supreme Court of Canada recently reaffirmed the right of a parent or guardian to use corporal punishment on children between the ages of two and twelve; this decision was contentious, being based upon S.43 of the Canadian Criminal Code, a provision enacted in 1892)

Not clear on Australia though I think its legal from that paragraph but they seem to have it under "reveiw" which could mean anything from them tossing it to the side and not spending time on the issue to activily taking sides on that debate Confused :

Quote::
The Australian state of Tasmania also is continuing to review the state's laws on the matter, and may seek to ban the use of corporal punishment by parents. The matter is also under review in other Australian states.

Also legal in the US still:

Quote::
Similarly, despite some opposition to corporal punishment in the USA, spanking children is legal, with some states explicitly allowing it in their law, and a few states even allowing its use by schools. All forms of corporal punishment have been legalized in Massachusetts via a court decision, though a ban has been proposed.

So spank your kids its still ok for now! Laughing
