I grew up getting whippings if I misbehaved. My daddy whipped me one time!! My youngest son is 27 he and his brothers grew up the same and they also learned the yes ma'am how to be gentlemen. Ever since they were little I've always been told what good kids they are. They're grown men and I still have people tell me. I'm not scared of my kids either nor will I let them run over me.They are not scared of me nor do they hate me for this. I'm sure alot of people disagree about this but there's nothing worse than an unruly child in public.

an ocassional whipping is necessary,i suppose FOR FOOLISHNESS IS BOUND UP IN THE HEART OF A CHILD.but too much of it is abuse.

I agree. It's not a fine line between the two either. I don't understand how a person can be mean to an animal or child.
