Kids are shown bad-mouthing their parents, especially the father, for 25 minutes of a 30 minute sitcom show, and then for the last 30 seconds they'll show the parent correcting their child's ungodly disrespectful behavior.
So? The kid still gets a reprimand and learns an aesop in the end. Are you saying you prefer watching 30 minutes of beatings? That’s both sadistic and it takes up the show! There’s no room for a plot.
As corn-dog as many of those old wholesome family sitcoms tended to be, at least they were presented as an ideal for families to emulate. Patience and a good strong lecture will get you far and even The Cleavers (for all the Righties’ idolizing them as ‘The Ideal Family’) were far more nurturing, and “LIBERAL” than your idea of parenting.
The point of discipline is to TEACH. A kid learns squat if all they learn is “Obey or get hit”. That teaches zilch about what they did wrong and why.
An overly strict parent will only make the child’s disobedience underground. The kid will sneak around and will never turn to you for guidance, advice, or to tell something that’s both important and sensitive. It will backfire in the long run.
A parent shouldn’t be a “friend” but they should still be “friendly” while still instilling good values and behavior.
You just fetishize POWER & DOMINANCE….like all weak, inferior, DEGENERATE wussbags who turn to violence, bullying and authoritarianism to feel “special”. You’re a weak inferior human who only worships the Supreme Being at Their weakest, falsest and most Demiurgic.
The Gnostics equated the Demiurge take on Deity to The DEVIL! The Demiurge is The Devil in the form of “Light & Lawful Piety”.
Authoritarians and Macho people are the true degenerate and weak. So-called “Political Strongmen” are weaklings! No amount of ability to physically overpower others will disprove that! TRUE STRENGTH LIES WITHIN!
Anyone can try to solve things by blowing up and pummeling each over but it takes REAL STRENGTH to stay calm and channel one’s energy into intellect and talk things over while defusing the situation.
Violence & war should be a very last resort when all peaceful means have been exhausted and as self-defense.
If you can’t raise and discipline a kid without hitting them, YOU FAIL AS A PARENT!
It is our DUTY AS HUMANS to RISE ABOVE OUR BASER NATURES and BECOME LESS AGGRESSIVE AS A SPECIES but you and your ilk don’t even care to try! YOU ARE A LAZY BUNCH OF MISANTHROPES WHO THINK HOBBES WAS RIGHT!
True; The Bible states that humanity is fallen and prone to sin but that doesn’t mean humans are bad seeds incapable of goodness. WE have free will and that free will allows us to do our darndest to work on being kinder and better people.
Humanity is flawed, not evil. Locke was Right!….
