We believe the 25 year Politically Motivated SOCIAL EXPERIMENT with New Age "complex psychological techniques" of behavior management has COMPLETELY FAILED and it is ABSURD to continue FORCING these SOCIETY-DESTROYING THEORIES on parents with the IRON HAND of force, intimidation, and TERRORISM.
"If we are ever to turn toward a kindlier society and a safer world, a revulsion against the physical punishment of children would be a good place to start." Dr. Spock (By the way, Doctor Spock's son committed suicide)
Spanking became CHILD ABUSE and parents CRIMINALIZED for what had been a Cultural Norm FOR CENTURIES- for the sake of-
The CPS agencies created to enforce the EXPERIMENT have grown SO POWERFUL that they can EASILY ASSASSINATE the CHARACTER of ANYBODY by making up FALSE ACCUSATIONS.
"Guilty" or INNOCENT, Parents have NO DEFENSE!
Over the past 25
The statements and opinions below are a recital of HOW BEHAVIOR WAS MANAGED back when there wasn't much juvenile delinquency, NO school shootings, and NO DANGEROUS KIDS.
Almost NO one born after 1965 has a clue about corporal punishment, and this is a public reminder of HOW IT WORKED and why it WORKED SO WELL.
use of spanking is VIRTUALLY GUARANTEED to
We believe that the re-introduction of spanking IS THE CURE for many of the ills of today's society. BUT only when the New Agers finally figure out that THEY ARE FATALLY WRONG and they are THE CAUSE of the destruction of American Society, and laws CLARIFIED so spanking can be a NORMAL and acceptable behavior management tool again.
Notice to people who are
"flaming" me about this page-
believe that spanking is absolutely
AND every parent NATURALLY knows how.
You don't have to give a spanking often, because it is REAL PUNISHMENT and children will MODIFY THEIR BEHAVIOR to avoid it.
For New Age people who just don't get it: This is called SELF-CONTROL, which creates ACCOUNTABILITY and RESPONSIBILITY, which are THE BASIS FOR CIVILIZATION.- We DO NOT BELIEVE that a spanking is THE ANSWER, EVERY TIME.
- We DO BELIEVE that a spanking is THE ANSWER, when rebellion and disobedience defies any other DISCIPLINE.
- You DO NOT spank a BABY!! A minimum age MIGHT BE the "TERRIBLE Two's".
- We DO NOT BELIEVE that a spanking given with a hand, paddle, belt, wooden spoon, or willow switch on the buttocks with clothes on is abusive. Strong men should use ONLY their open hand for proper TACTILE feedback.
- We don't believe that a RED MARK or a SURFACE WELT from a well-deserved spanking is abuse.
- We DO NOT agree with any spanking that turns into a BEATING (there is a world of difference, and if you DON'T KNOW the difference, you had better just leave the house).
- If YOU ARE REALLY MAD (angry, fuming, heated, furious, enraged, outraged, infuriated) it is currently CONSIDERED to be HIGHLY IMPROPER to spank a kid while in this state of mind. This is what the pathetic, weedy New Age people call "an act of Hatred".
- Three or four authoritative swats are enough.
- If you can't stop at four swats, don't start with any.
- But conversely, if you can't make a spanking convincing, don't bother- it is ineffective silliness just like "Time Out".
Don't waste your breath apologizing beforehand about how "this hurts me more than you". If the child did something to be worthy of a spanking, punishment should be swiftly administered with the attitude that the bad behavior will not be tolerated.
Only AFTER the child repents of the behavior should you show forgiveness.
You can even apologize for having to administer the spanking and reinforce the point that THEY CAN CHOOSE not to display the kind of behavior that would deserve spanking.
Don't bother with the New Age psycho-babble semantics whether "You were Bad" or "Your behavior was Bad". It doesn't make any difference.
The issues are ACCOUNTABILITY and RESPONSIBILITY
Dr Gerald Rowles writes. "The most important lessons of childhood is discipline: disciplined behavior, disciplined thought, and discipline based in the morality of right and wrong, good and bad, and clear rules for human interaction,"
Discipline of your children with a spanking IS NOT A BEATING. It is NOT "Physical Abuse". It DOES NOT "Injure the child's self esteem". To say so is pure Junk Science. Kids are nowhere NEARLY this "sensitive" and "easy to damage".
You LOVE a well behaved child and you DISCIPLINE a badly behaved child (and I am not talking about just spanking). Don't get the semantics mixed up. Discipline is not the opposite of Love. It certainly is not "Hate".
Spanking does PERMANENTLY DAMAGE a child's desire to lie, cheat, steal, destroy property, yell, scream, butt into adult conversation, be lazy, be "hyperactive", be "inattentive", and DO HARM TO OTHERS.
If you REALLY ARE beating, abusing, or neglecting your children, maybe the Child Protective bureaucracy has the "cure" for you.
May God have mercy on your soul, because they won't.

To Spank or Not to
Spank . . .
4/30/97 BOZEMAN - - Spanking of children by parents is legal in every state of the United States.
According to national surveys, over 90 percent of parents have spanked their children at least once during the past year. The majority of parents support the idea of spanking and believe that giving youngsters "a good, hard spanking" is sometimes necessary. As many as 80 to 90 percent of the U.S. population reports that parents have not only the right, but the moral obligation to spank or slap.
Or how about the current statistics with a New Age Spin-
