I'm fine with the notion that physical discipline would help to correct the child's behavior, but not when it skirts the limits of child abuse. I'm fairly certain that most of the parents that have participated in this thread don't really support the notion that physically harming the child is going to accomplish anything other than turning the child into the panty waste they would also resent and condemn. Physically reprimand the child, but let's not pretend we're all balls-to-the-wall as to shove our fist down their throat. I'm a subscriber to the idea that you should tell the child not to touch the eye of the recently-used stove, but once they do it after that they had it coming. But there's no need to beat the kid, even when they assume their right to act out. I'm not saying that all those folks are actually going to beat the kid; I'm just saying don't pretend you are. Let them touch the burner and singe off their finger print, but once the danger goes further than that, it's time to step in.

Well, to any of you who said you can go to jail for hitting your child, you are wrong. It is legal to spank your child in just about any state. Parents don't believe in this method of discipline though. I was hit constantly as a child, and therefore I have a very rocky relationship with my dad. His dad beat him and he respects him in spite of it. My dad I have alot of resentment for. I'm from the NY area and now live in L.A., to get into the entertainment industry wasn't the only reason I moved here . . . Don't get me wrong I love my dad but I just don't really like him, if that makes any sense. I wouldn't want my kids to grow up to hate me or not like me on one hand, but I'd be damned if I was going to be disrespected by my child if it be public or private. So I really never decided on my method of discipline. My mom used positive reinforcement. "If you behave in the store, I'll buy you something when I'm done". If not you get jack shit. I would always behave if I knew I was getting something.

Its learned behavior. He/she has seen that throwing a fit will eventually result in getting what he/she wants.

When I was a young Ronnie, the thing that made me want to drink beer at a young age was...seeing kids open the toys right there in the store aisle, while their parents just sat there and let them.
I'm talking about, THE PARENTS WOULD WATCH THERE KIDS DO IT AND TOTALLY IGNORE IT AS IF IT WAS ALLOWED. THEN NOT BUY THE DAMN TOY.
I shit you not, this would happen almost everytime I would go to Toys R us.

If I did this as a kid I would get a super beat down. My mom would have given me the "bat slap".

Heck, you think that's bad, I was in a Toys R Us myself a long time back and this little boy was throwing a fit over toys with his Mom. "I want this toy!" the boy screamed, while the Mom, the calmest parent I've ever seen, tried to talk some sense into the kid in that "You don't have enough money. You can buy a cheaper toy or save your money."
Kid's reply? "NO! SHUT UP!"
As soon as I heard that... Oh, man, if it had been me and my folks, I would have been dragged out the store and given a serious meeting with the large plastic spoon my folks used instead of the ol' belt (and that sucker stung)
This Mom though, continued to try and talk sense into the kid. I would have felt after the kid telling you to shut up, that would be it. Seemed to me like the Mom was afraid of her own demon seed.
I really hate kids throwing tantrums over something so simple as toys. The whole "Have to have it, but once I do, I don't care about it." mentality.
If I were the mean type, I'd go up to these kids and say one of my favorite lines... "Life can be full of disappointments, kid. Get used to it." XP

i would have been taken home,told to go cut a stick off of a hickory tree and bring it back for my very own special ass whipping; if i was lucky enough it was my mom. My dad would have taken his belt off and reddened my ass to where i couldn't sit for a day.
