Parents can’t beat their children anymore, Ebay won’t let you auction them off anymore, Craigslist has a very strict “no humans allowed for sale” policy, so what’s a parent to do?
I pondered this after my seven-year-old was overheard teaching his older brother how to whip a stuffed rabbit at the dog, without Mom noticing. My thoughts turned borderline criminal when I tried to discipline him, and in turn he announced that whatever I do to him, he will record on his iPod and post it on YouTube for all to see.
I do vaguely remember a much simpler time when parents disciplined their bratty children without outside consequences, however it’s viewed as “child abuse” now.
Note to self: research other means of punishment that don’t leave marks or evidence.
Outside suggestions are always welcomed!
