    Moderator's Warning:
    Parents: Punishing Kids [W:361]Folks, I understand this is a contentious topic. But if you can't discuss this topic without going out of your way in your arguments to bait other people then you're going to get ejected. There are plenty of ways to make your points without needlessly going personal

    Actually it is. A teen (kid) using a weapon (towel) to inflict physical pain on another kid. Yes it is dead on.

    Might want to look up straw man.

    That is exactly what you are advocating against. He is assaulting a child with a weapon. You know the reason the towel snaps? It is the tip reaching the speed of sound. Is this not a painful weapon?

    My mother in law used to whack my husband and his brothers with the Hot Wheel track. I didn't think anyone else got that!

    Did he do it as punishment or discipline?

    Yea those things are the worst! We started slowly throwing them away one at a time. When they were gone we never asked for Hot Wheels again!

    Irrelevant. If I tell my kid we are going to play the switch game, since it's not discipline or punishment, just a fun game. It's OK with you?

    I suppose as long as he gets to hit you too, but seeing as the OP is not about games or pranks. You seem to be missing the point. Please don't have kids until you figure out the difference.

    I get the point. I am pointing out the logic failure of your argument.
