    Yes or no?
    Also, did you get spanked as a kid, and if you have kids, have you ever/would you ever spank them?

    No. Letting them sit endlessly in front of a screen is abuse.

    Are you sure that's abuse and not just shitty/lazy parenting?

    I often hear the argument like "My parents spanked me and I turned out ok" No you turned out to be a person who thinks its ok to hit a child.
    I don't think a well adjusted parent spanks a child.

    if some homeless man is yelling in the street, are you allowed to go up to him and hit him?
    hitting is hitting.

    Nah, only if it's a homeless child

    It never actually hurts. It should just be used for extreme circumstances where the kid is out of control and keeps getting their way, bring them down to earth sort of thing. I would have turned out way more spoiled without my grandparents spanking me

    I'm pretty sure lazy shitty parenting is a form of abuse, it's called neglect.

    It's a tough call, I am one of those people who is like, "Well I was spanked and I turned out okay", but I don't think you should hit your dog, why would I think it's okay to hit your child. Some parents have no strategy though and most of the time make it harder on themselves by not teaching any discipline.

    I don't really know the answer though, I'm not a parent. It's easy for me to say that parents should be better, but what do I know? All I know is that children are not in the cards for me, so it's not something I'll ever have to deal with.

    Hitting kids should be mandatory, make the little fuckers terrified of even breathing wrong.

    But people who hit dogs should be executed

    Hitting oblivious parents when their kids are acting up in public should be allowed

    Hitting dogs is completely different. Spanking a kid should be treated like a life lesson but a dog can't comprehend that. People who hit dogs are just doing it because they want to hit something

    I accidentally smacked my dog once, and I still feel terrible. I was asleep and she woke me up digging on my balls. Flicked my arm to stop it, she hit the wall.

    It was awful, she wasn’t hurt and it never happened again, but I’m traumatized

    Isn't it legally?

    It is better to obey by being persuaded

    Yes. You don't know how children process it as it is happening as spanking can cause epigenetic changes to a child's brain.

    Not forgetting your behavior will dictate a child's behavior towards other children. If you as an authority figure hits them, they will think it's okay to do the same thing to younger and weaker children when they do something your child doesn't approve of. It's a toxic behavior. There are other ways to discipline a child that are way more efficient than violence. Don't do to others what you wouldn't want them to do to you.

    Me, my brother and sister were spanked. None of us have ever been in a fight before.
