They are like the military man that says he is there to protect and serve, but kills innocents in the field. He is a terrible guardian of men, like a man that hits his children is a terrible guardian of children.
    Guardian is not all a parent is and does not begin to encompass the level of responsibility required to execute said duties. Protection is just but one function of a myriad of them. I use a paddle on my children for discipline when I deem it necessary. Is that a failure of my duty or is that me fulfilling my duties?

    Your military analogy doesn't work. They are beholden to certain masters, those masters may deem it necessary to attack civilians of an enemy for very valid reasons, amongst those they are providing material support such a manufacturing munitions and such.

    Did you skip sociology during homeschooling because it's just a scam?

    If your arguments are indicative of the kind of thinking study in the field is likely to produce, I would strongly encourage others to do the same.

    Soft non-objective science breeds soft non-objective minds, I'm afraid.

    So why are you even engaging me on this thread? Apparently, I advocate for child abuse, not that you can prove that, but why bother. It seems to annoy you for some reason. If your jealous of my family don't be we take in stays all the time. Your welcome to join.

    You only rail against sociology because it counters ignorant viewpoints.

I bet you cant and further if anyone on this thread or for that matter any other thread cant find a post where I say that. Hell find one of me advocating the beating of children. You and eco need to cool the jets, your burning yourselves out.

    Easily debunked self-serving fantasy is capable of "countering" nothing whatsoever.

    Me too. It sure wasn't anything I took pleasure in but sometimes it was necessary. I've been sitting here recalling the times I had to spank and they were few. Like the time my son 8, attached a pulley system up high in a large maple tree in the front yard and tide the rope off on the neighbor's fence making a type of zip line. Bent the heck out of the neighbor's fence. Or the time he used post hole diggers to create an 18 hole gulf course in our backyard. His buddy's dad had given him a set of old golf clubs so the boys opened up for business charging the kids in the neighborhood 25 cents a game and took out a basement window. Then there were times like riding their bikes out in the street when told to stay on the sidewalk and darn near got hit by a car. And the time my daughter lied to me (9) telling me she didn't have any homework and when progress reports came out and the news wasn't good, instead of bringing it home she dropped it in the mailbox on the corner. The mailman made sure I got it. I don't recall spanking after the age of 10. And the spanking was done with a paddle on the butt. Punishment was swift and over. A paddling is not a beating. What I do find abusive is the parent that screams at their kids, calling them names and carrying on like out of control idiots. God Almighty I wish there was a mute button to push to shut them the hell up.
