yes. I spanked all three of my kids - not often, but that is because my kids were raised correctly - I never had to "Scream" at my kids - they listened
Of course they do, both ways. It it goes over the top to actual abuse, that's one thing. But punishment is how people grow and learn how to be productive people in society. You learn what is right and what is wrong, what is acceptable and what is not, where your limits are and where you have no boundaries.
right no! resposibility by all means how do you think you are to learn to be respected productive adults? If they are leaving scares then it is not okay but you need to learn that love is being a parent not your friend.
Honestly the line where it stops being discipline and it starts being abuse is really really fuzzy as there isn't a direct way of telling because every parent is different. I can't really define where it crosses the line but I don't think verbal punishment is ever good because the only reason it is used and basically the only thing it will do is belittle someone
hell yes, how can they not?
Yes, if the child is pissing them off.
Not physically, in my book. Verbally, as in a lecture, sure. Screaming or berating? That's abuse.
Oh, of course not. They should let animals raise us
No, they have the RESPONSIBILITY to discipline you.
