"Kids are getting too much power and protection nowadays. If I want to yell and fuss at my kid in public then I will. I don't need anyone coming up to me like I'm crazy. If the kid sees that I'm scared to yell in public he'll use that to his advantage. I hate the parents who think kids aren't smart. Another thing I'm not scared to do is use physical punishment i.e. belts. Anyone who thinks that is abuse is an idiot. My whole family received the same discipline and they turned fine. Giving timeouts does absolutely shit. The only thing it does is make bad children. My parents whipped me, spanked me, took away my electronics, and even put me outside. I'm completely fine and I'm not a violent person. I hate the people who constantly claim that physical punishment only makes violent children. "
