I’ve been watching scared straight and I hate it when people say, “so and so is at an important cross roads in their life.” Technically we’re always at an important cross road in life…the decisions we make every single day effect us for the rest of our lives.
Some of these kids are 12/13 years old having sex, drinking, doing drugs…wtf?! I didn’t know what any of that was at that age! It’s the parents fault for allowing the children to get this out of control. That’s the problem with today’s world, too many parents aren’t parents, they don’t take responsibility and admit it’s their own fault.
If my children (when they come) are that out of control, then it’s my own damn fault! No anyone else’s! And it my responsibility to watch them, teach them, and believe it or not, punish them. Children need punishment and discipline, it is healthy and good for them. Now don’t get me wrong, there’s a big difference from repeatedly hitting your child, especially without reason, and spanking your child. The punishment should fit the crime. There is nothing wrong with spanking a child. And that’s the problem with the world, not enough punishing the child to teach them.
My generation got plenty of spankings and everyone things we turned out bad…look around you today…this next batch of kids doesn’t make us look to bad…
