I am actually a parent. IMO, no one has the right to try to "correct" someone else's child, unless they have DIRECT instructions on how to do it and permission from the child's parent.
As for some posts that admitted that they HIT or KICKED someone elses babies, I'd call the police and DCFS if someone physically harmed
one of my kids!!!!
Why do some people think CRIMINAL ASSAULT
is OK if perpetrated against the most vulnerable of people? Would you KICK your friend? If so, you have some serious self control issues.
NOBODY has a right to hit children, not parents and certainly not someone else. It is a failed "parenting" strategy and people who even would think about hitting one of my kids would be cut out of my life with laser precision.
If someone's child is misbehaving in your house you take it up with the parents
. No one has the right to discipline an other person's child, unless the parents have told you you may and exactly HOW to do it. AND if those parents give you "permission" to HIT their kids, DON'T do it. It's abusive.
Someone said they KICKED a small child?!?! What the FUCK is wrong with you? You do NOT have any ethical or LEGAL right to KICK a child under ANY circumstance! That's fucking abusive!
If you think that is the way to act around children, stay the hell away from them! Anybody who KICKS children doesn't have the maturity or self control to be allowed around children. You do know that that is a FORM OF ASSAULT. Anything that could land you in jail
if you did it to an adult is NOT allowed to be done to children. Jeez, I'm freaking fuming. WHO would KICK a child? WTF?
Why does every non-parent thinks they are more expert at taking charge of kids than those kids' parents are? Yeah, I was a perfect parent once, then I had kids
. It's a LOT harder when YOU are on the inside with those kids 24/7 day in and day out. Yelling at someone elses child, once in a while may make it SEEM like y'all know what you are doing, but I guarantee, if those were your kids, it wouldn't work that way
Children act like.... children. If they are destructive or attempt to harm your animals, REMOVE them from the situation, THEN take it up with the parents in a kind, non-emotional tone.
If you don't have kids, you aren't
a child behavior expert.
But, everybody who has occasional access to nieces and nephews or neighbor's children always seems to think they know MORE about how to take care of kids than those kids' actual parents.
A few hours with a child isn't being a parent. Nor does that person KNOW what it is like to actually have full care of a child of their own.
If there are problems, bring it up with the parent
if you aren't the parent of that child, you have NO business taking up any kind of discipline on your own.
If you, for some reason, think the child is some kind of hell spawn (and I can pretty much assure you he or she isn't) then don't allow the kid in your house and only see those people in their
