“Well if she didn’t want to get hit, then she shouldn’t have started a fight.”
It makes sense to me. After all, he’s a man. You can’t expect a man to control himself. That’s asking too much.
Men are lions. Men are alligators. Men are dragons.
You cannot expect a wild beast to control itself. So why are you asking men to do the same?
All is fair when you’re talking about a fight. No rules. It’s just open war fair. If she didn’t want a fight, then she shouldn’t have started one.
Here’s a link to an article that I wrote for Our Muddy Boots. It’s part of the “No Spank Challenge” hosted by Amy Bryant, of Parenting Beyond Punishment. This is something that I believe in entirely.
Kids are people who are most in need our protection and trust. Why spanking is still okay is way beyond me.
