  •  No, I'm Saying Your Behavior Was Abusive (0+ / 0-)

    I believe it was. You feel defensive about it. Wonder why that is?

    •  you are calling me a child abuser (0+ / 0-)

      just look upthread where you said this:

      You hit her to satisfy YOUR emotional needs. I'm sure you really believe this is not the case. Most abusers feel the same way and use the same justifications.
      That sure sounds to me like you were calling me an abuser.

        I'm saying that people who ARE abusers use the same types of justifications.

        I don't know if you are an abuser or not, I only know that the behavior you have described is in my opinion, abusive.

        However, if it was not chronic and happened only occasionally under certain circumstance, I would not consider you to be a child abuser, I would consider you to have used bad judgement on several occasions.

      •  Cordgrass, You Are NOT A Bad Person, IMO (0+ / 0-)

        I just want to make that very, very clear. I am NOT judging you. You recc'd my last post, and I hope that was not accidental. This is a subject that is INCREDIBLY delicate, and emotionally charged, and there are many, unconscious PROGRAMMED responses that people have to this subject.

        When you hit your child, as punishment, as you have indicated, it cannot help but be an emotional event, on all levels. Do you agree?

        Just think about that.

        For you AND your child.

        You seem to think that causing them THIS pain and humiliation will achieve some goal, and yet, you also dismiss it as "just a pat". If it's "just a pat", how will it achieve your goal?

        Why do you maintain this contradiction?

        Do you see what I'm getting at here?

        You were "spanked" as a child, were you not?

        How do you feel about that?
