Kid slaps mom on Dr. Phil Show

June 19, 2008

Have you heard about the kid that slaps his mom on the Dr. Phil show.  I’m not talking about a light tap on the cheek, he really slaps her.  If I was the parent, this kid would still be in the hospital and I might be behind bars, but he would have to get his butt beat.  I’m not talking about abusing the kid, but he would know who the parent is.  This could lead to a long conversation about how to discipline our children.  Some people believe in talking and taking time outs and other people believe in whipping their children and following the advice that is given in the Bible in Proverbs 23:13-14 which says: Don’t fail to correct your children.  They won’t die if you spank them.  Physical discipline may well save them from death.

I’m going to take my guidance from the Bible.  How about you?  Your comments are welcome.
