#6332707 Should parents spank their kids?

Posted by vuduchile on 11 October 2018 - 05:34 PM

Lots of ignorance in this thread.  

People who believe "sparing the rod spoils the child" typically dismiss the enormous body of research showing that hitting children turns them into angry, resentful adults with psychological and emotional problems. A large meta-analysis of studies on the effects of punishment found that the more physical punishment children receive, the more defiant they are toward parents and authorities, the poorer their relationships with parents, the more likely they are to report hitting a dating partner or spouse. They are also more likely to suffer mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse problems, and less likely to empathize with others or internalize norms of moral behavior.


In a new article, Spanking and Child Development: We Know Enough Now to Stop Hitting Our Children, Elizabeth Gershoff reviews recent research on spanking.


It is also worth noting that the U.S. is relatively unusual in terms of attitudes, prevalence, and legal sanctions. Hitting children is more culturally acceptable in American than in many other nations  not only by parents, but by teachers (corporal punishment in schools is still permitted in 19 states). In many nations, physical punishment of children has now been outlawed, even for parents. In the table below, we summarize the legal position with regard to hitting children in a selection of counties.

It is terrifying that someone can simply accuse and get so much traction with that accusation....

This is the same hysterical mentality that gave us the Salem witch trials and McCarthyism.

As a nation, we really havent progressed as far as wed like to think.

Saw this last month... Great entertainment...

There was a point in time when I thought you might have been truthful about your children dying posts being PSAs of some sort.


As of today, I no longer believe that.  


Seriously, how can you be entertained by watching real people die horrific deaths?

It was very abrupt and quite intrusive.

It felt like I was being grabbed in the pussey.

I have no problem with any politicians being rude to members of the press.

Theyve all taken a sh!t on the concept of a truthful and unbiased news.  Fock em.

Yep. I refuse to ever be alone with a student. Ever. Even when I taught college in America, I had that policy.

Here, the classrooms all have cameras at my school.  Thats nice. These spoiled little focks Im teaching now are evil. I wouldnt put anything past some of them.

I observe similar rules when Im coaching youth sports.  

Im never in a locker room or bathroom with the kids and I never touch them unless its a fist bump or high five.  

I dont give rides to other kids unless my sons and/or wife are present.

I cant believe I actually watched 15 minutes of this garbage.  

Every dem uses his/her time to applaud CBF for her heroism and courage.  

I give this country about half century before it all comes crumbling down.

Cubs bullpen appears gassed.   Losing Strop on top of Morrow was just too much.   Cubs are too talented to fall apart, but I think the Brewers can lose one less then the Cubs and this ends up in a tie and we get a one game playoff for the division.   And the worse of it....I now have to root for the Cardinals ---- :wall:
Good luck.  :cheers:

The bullpens of these two teams are polar opposites.   But the one thing they have in common is their ability to scare the crap outta Cubs fans.  

Of course I dont wanna see the Brewers overtake or tie the Cubs.  But I have to admit, this race is good for baseball.  

Have fun!

#6319597 Is Fitzpatrick pulling a Kurt Warner?

Posted by vuduchile on 25 September 2018 - 08:08 PM

I think this is his final audition. TBs bye is week 5. They go in to it 3-1 and Fitz has another impressive showing, I can't see them turning to Winston. They go in 2-2 and Fitz throws 3 picks again, I think they make the change.  

Its sort of unfair to Fitz.  That Bears D is no joke.  

Im sure the Bears coaching staff would love the Bucs to trot Winston out there this week.  He gets sacked a ton and fumbles a lot.  Coming off a 3 game suspension, I think the he would be eaten alive.  

Meanwhile, Fitz will probably struggle as well, and it will be easy for everyone to say the magic is gone.

I dont buy butter as a condiment but even if I did, what do you put it on? Bread, seafood, popcorn ...? Lack of versatility is an issue.

Pancakes and Waffles
Green beans

Hard to believe this guy went so far off the rails.

His old buddy Carolla is pretty much the opposite politically.
