Many people say to live your life treating others as you would like to be treated.
Yet still parents spank their children.
The definition of ‘people’ runs as follows: All the persons of a racial or ethnic group; nation, race, etc.
The word ‘people’ includes children as well as adults. Many adults may treat each other with respect and consideration but those same adults go home and spank their children.
Many adults are patient and willing to help their friends through difficulties but those same adults go home and do the exact opposite for their children.
While many parents are supportive and kind to their children, others are not. Even within households where parents are supportive of their children, spanking still occurs.
It is hypo-criticism of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, the Golden Rule, and a quote I hear so often in response to racism and discrimination.
No adult would liked to be spanked for stepping out of line. Children do not enjoy being spanked either; you tell your child you love them. You spank them. And you soothe the hurt you created. It is pointless circle.
When two people join in matrimony, it is a beautiful thing and the child two people create should be as beautiful a thing. If parents treated their child as they treated each other, spanking would diminish across the globe.
Some say those who are spanked turn out fine. I speak with those who say spanked children grow up believing it is alright to hit children.
And those are the people who cause the problems in the world.
