I am usually against physical discipline, but I saw something today that made me think twice.
I spent the day with my girlfriend and her two younger brothers (one 4, the other 7) and I was on the verge of killing the little shits.
The parents try their hardest to punish them such as sitting them in a corner, or taking away toys until they act accordingly, but nothing works. They scream and sprint around the house getting into everything in sight.
Every now and then they will take a break from this and decide to run up and punch me in the crotch. What’s worse than all of that is the fact that they are openly rude to most anyone they come into contact with. They have absolutely no fear due to the fact that they know full well that the raised voices of their parents are nothing but an empty threat.
I am of the opinion that the best technique would be to give my child one good spanking in his lifetime. After that spanking I will give him a death glare that he will know is connected to the day of pain. I would assume that any time he does something terrible after that all I would have to do is give him the deathglare and he will stop immediately.
Having no children of my own, I am a complete idiot when it comes to these matters. I was just curious how any parents on here handle those situations.
