now there’s some good parenting
i like thanks ilu
Either it’s child abuse or “not-okay-for-westerners-but-considered-ok-in-other-culture”.
Well, usually caning and beating in other culture is used for last resort.
Yeah that’s just how I used to get it, and its funny how kids today can get away with almost anything because weak ass-parents don’t do a damn thing.
Robert Freeman would be proud!
ha, thats a nice one!
I don’t see the point of a faked apology, give them a reason to be sorry if they fail to understand why what they did was wrong, you will have to condition them to avoid “misbehavior”, until you can instill a formal idea of morality, so until then, the rest is up to parenting.
Because conditioning is not really parenting, that’s why i made the distinction, in the first case the kid doesn’t really knows why something is bad, he just associates it as bad.
Doomroar, you are wise beyond your years.
…ooooor you used to get your ass beat as a kid.
Either way, I like you.
My parents were probably less than average with the physical discipline and I’ve often had the same thoughts as doomy. So, he’s probably wise
You’re right about how we’re conditioned to say sorry. But sometimes, kids really do need to forego their judgement and listen to their parents (I’m not sure whether that applies to this comic, however)
How do you get children to understand why something is wrong? On what age can they comprehend moral constructs?
So, what? Now she’s going to undress in front of her kid to punish him? 🙂
Something tells me you were desperately trying to out dark this http://explosm.net/comics/3870 yet went for the psychological route rather than creative route.
ahh, a retake on the old, “Now smoke the whole pack” punishment.
Didn’t work btw, I kept smoking for nearly 40 years after that….
She’s definitely got a black belt!
Personally I couldn’t disagree with this comic more, Kids need to be taught to obey their parents and respect authority, because a person who’s too prideful to take orders will NEVER be able to give them.
