As a white male who had a black best friend growing up, I had legit Vietnam flashbacks of her doing every. Single. One of these techniques... Her old fashioned asswhoopins we're felt through the circle of friends
@Joe2point0, as a White male who worked with kids in a psych facility in a predominantly black population, I’ve legit adopted every. Single. One of these techniques with my own children.
@Joe2point0, as a black male that had a black mother growing up, I can tell you how effective these techniques are
@Joe2point0, as a vegan carnivore that is equally parts of every ethnicity i agree with these methods. You are a parent first and a friend 2nd.
My parents whooped my ass as a kid and I turned out just fine.
@The Dream Reamer, Same!
@Beaverdd15, me too mate
@The Dream Reamer, true story, i told me mom no once when she asked me to vacuum my room. Next thing i new it the vacuum cord smacked my body and i felt death for a brief moment. Needless to say that was the only time i ever told me mom no.
I read a study recently that suggested that single black mothers are THE most abusive parents.
Second place goes to lesbian couples.
@I Are Lebo, you actually being serious about the second one?
@Not him again, yeah, unfortunately. Lesbian couples are over represented in cases of child abuse. Specifically emotional abuse, not physical abuse, but there’s a LOT of cases of that, too.
It’s one of the ‘best’ arguments that conservatives have had against gay marriage, but I think it’s just a byproduct of how men and women settle arguments. I mean, think about all the times you’ve had an argument with a women. Now imagine you were arguing with her the way she argued with you, and think about how well that would have gone.
I’m generalizing, but the trends are still true. I’m not saying lesbian parents are bad parents, I’m saying lesbian couples are bad at conflict resolution.
For the record, I’m not against gay marriage. Even if it could be conclusively proven that gay marriage was bad for gay people or even for society, my attitude would be that if you’re not free to do something that’s bad for you, you’re not free. I’m a big supporter of freedom.
Lesbian couples are also vastly overrepresented in domestic violence police responses.
@I Are Lebo, your second paragraph makes a good point lol. I believe it though.
@I Are Lebo, never met my parents!
@Nell, I didn’t say they’re the only abusive parents, only that this particular demographic is overrepresented in abuse statistics.
@I Are Lebo, for the record i think all marriage is bad once you get the government involved 😂
@Implicit88, I am forced to agree. The fact that the courts place so much importance on the ex wife’s ‘quality of life’, and none whatsoever on his is why men getting shafted in divorces is so common we joke about it.
“Did you hear about the new divorced Barbie doll? It comes with half of Ken’s stuff.”
I think it’s absolutely disgusting how men are treated in the west when it comes to alimony and child support. The only thing more unfair and biased against men is parental rights. Women in the USA, Canada, the UK, and Australia have the right to cut ties with a child, whether by abortion or adoption. Men don’t have that right. Even after the child is put up for adoption they can still be put on the hook for child support payments.
People who say this is a man’s world have clearly never spoken with any of the men out there forced to work multiple jobs just so they can afford to pay the court mandated alimony fees while living out of a box.
Male privilege isn’t real.
This world is unfair to every type of person, just in different ways.
That mom tho...
@cajmoyper , I'd piss her off on purpose just to get that look of death
@Not him again, come spank me, I’ve been a bad boy
I still like counting. There was a moment in public when a kid was misbehaving, and his mom said, "I'm gonna count to three"
"One " Kid didn't stop
"Two" kid still didn't stop
"Three" Kid realizes his mistake. As soon as she said three, he lost it. Crying, begging for mercy.
I once asked my mom what would happen if she got to 3. She said I didn't want to know
One of my favorite parenting moments I’ve ever witnessed in the Wild was when my wife and I were in line at subway in a Walmart, and there was this big black Mom behind us. Suddenly, this little boy kinda slides into view at the entrance of the subway, all Risky Business style, and goes “Mom, can you get me a soda?!”, and this woman turns back to him and goes “Boy, GET ON!”, and that little boy got. The fvck. On.
Omg. I have no children, so I do this to my dogs. But I have a special arsenal.. la chancla. Any respectable Mexican woman uses it.
@mayora13, you should not be using weapons of ass destruction against good boys. Those things should only be used against terrorists, pedophiles and kids who kick the back of your seat
@BigJohnson86, haha! All I need to do now is smack the chancla against the couch, they have learned well.
Do it right, and you never need these. I have what I call my "wut" look. Stare at em til they straighten up. They know what the next step is - they have to sit in the upstairs bathroom (essentially just a toilet in a closet) with my hubby when he poops. He has GI issues, you can smell it on all 3 floors. It's never gotten that far, they know better
@mattswife, you monster......i like you
@mattswife, chemical warfare, i like it.
