I don’t know if I’ll spank my kids. It seems like a lot of work followed by guilt and their long-term resentment, which ultimately results in them deciding on a career as an artist or something. I would much rather focus on psychological alternatives to actually beating a child.
This includes telling them how their stuffed animals actually come to life at night and eat their toes if misbehave or how they will never be able to play anymore Super Mario ever again if they don’t eat their green beans. Kids love Super Mario right now, right?
Physically assaulting someone doesn’t do anything but make them want to pass it along. So, in the spirit of good Catholic mothers everywhere, keep up the guilt trips instead!
A Bethlehem man assaulted his girlfriend Saturday after she tried to stop him from spanking their 2-year-old daughter, according to court records.
Joshua M. Bauder, 34, allegedly grabbed Lauren Worozilchak by the neck and threw her to the ground, Bethlehem police said. She had been trying to stop him from spanking their daughter because she said he was spanking her too hard, according to court records.
Police said girl had bruises and redness to her thighs, according to court records. Bauder told police he spanked the girl because she was screaming, police said.
Bauder, of 15 W. Spruce St., was charged with simple assault and harassment. He was arraigned before District Judge David Tidd and sent to Northampton County Prison under $15,000 bail. SOURCE: The Morning Call
Please stop beating your kids, all kidding aside. Sure, it is an easy and quick way to get your point across, but all it does is make the, not want to be bad so they won’t get hit, not because they don’t want to do something bad because it’s bad.
If you beat your kids, they are going to someone cigarettes. Just sayin.
Knowing is half the battle.
