When can you smack a kid in the head?
« on: September 20, 2018, 08:15:26 am »
I'm of two minds about this. On the one hand, I'm not generally in favour of violence, especially towards kid. On the other hand, the little bastard deserved it. Was a time the bus drivers actions would have been considered perfectly normal. If I mouthed off to an adult - any adult - and my parents heard about it you can be sure I'd have gotten smacked. And if the other adult did it as well that wouldn't stop my parents from joining in. Kids were taught to treat adults with respect. Today, the most appalling behaviour from startlingly young kids can be seen on the streets. They know they're immune to any kind of punishment. No adult dares touch them. So they can pretty much say and do whatever they feel like.

When can you smack an adult in the head?

When you are older than they are, and they don't show you the respect you think you are entitled to for being older.  90 year-olds can smack most anybody.

When can teenagers smack curmudgeonly baby-boomers in the head? Given the state of the world the baby boomers have created, I think it would be more appropriate.

Well, if you smacked them in the head enough when younger they'd know how to behave by the time they got to be adults.

What state would that be? Better than at any time in the history of mankind?

Made me smile.....memory flashback to my grandmother who used to yank my grandfather's hair when he got out of line....He used to say that was why his hair was still so thick in his 80's - because he was bad a lot.  :D

God damned right! The world needs more violence. Get those kids indoctrinated, the younger the better. Make every school bus driver sit through a course on child beating.

I mean, hell yeah. I can't wait to beat other people's children publicly. Especially the ones that aren't white. They need it the most. /s

What other point in history was preferable everyone else, then?
Don't get me wrong, I think the baby boomers were incredibly selfish and self-indulgent as a 'group', but it's not like the world is a horrible place compared to any other point in time.

You know pretty much anyone who is spouting off about kids being rotten and their parents raising them rotten is childless.  Without fail.

Because these people are apparently fantastic at raising imaginary kids.   ::)

Pretty shitty of you to shame people without children. You know there's a lot of people who can't physically have kids, right?

We might not all have kids of our own, but we've all had parents.  And most of us had parents who'd never tolerate us acting the way some of these little terrors are allowed to behave.
