    It's not. But physically disciplining any child of any age is wrong morally (IMO) and it's not effective.

    The confusion, the humiliation, the pain will obfuscate and "rational" lessons you were hoping they'd learn and the scars can lead to much dysfunction and cognitive dissonance.

      Including the things you keep saying are absolutes.

      I respect your conviction that striking a child is never justified, but I do not share it.

      •  Umm, I Never Said They Were Absolutes, They Are (0+ / 0-)

        Obviously my opinions and I do believe that striking a child is never justified. That is not an absolute, it is my, subjective opinion. Obviously people disagree.
