what does 'discipline' mean? the disciplinarian is perceived as an authoritative figure, which people view parents as. argument from authority is a fallacy, (whereas reasonable nazi comparisons are not. the nazis are a part of history so i don't see how historical analysis is a logically fallacious?)
jesus christ here ya go a bunch of definitions. Happy?
Comparing parents to Nazis for disciplining their children is absolutely a logical fallacy and not a historical analysis.
the reason you can't define discipline is because 'discipline' is a euphemism for abuse. abuse by definition is an irrational act: it can't be justified on any basis. the nazis wanted to 'discipline' the jews because they didn't behave. you see the parallels?
I don’t understand why you’re coming at me about this haha. The reason I didn’t give you a definition is because you can equally go look it up on dictionary.com. Also it sounds like you’re stuck in a Reductio ad Hitlerum.
Discipline is absolutely essential to raising a child, and every child requires a different level of it. Lack of discipline is what results in a delinquent and unhealthy child -> adult.
i guess that these people are attempting to rationalize the abuse by their loved ones. similarly, some victims of domestic violence 'thank' their abuser for teaching them how to behave. unfortunate peoples do this with god, by asserting it's 'god's will' and that god is 'teaching' them a lesson. i think that these harmed people are trying to rationalize their pain. the 'rationalization' of abuse is dangerous, as the nazis demonstrated, hence these victims become abuse their children also.
I think this is a little deeper thought than is necessary for the common spanking receiving child, but you’re right in extreme cases.
why do i see a repeated claim of 'gratitude' among kids that were beaten by their parents? my mom says the same thing. she's 'grateful' that her mom beat her and kicked her out the house when she was 16. i guess these people believe that it made them 'strong'? meh, i find it strange.
Some people need that kick to be successful. Kinda like a shitty lawn mower. You gotta be real rough for it to get goin.
define 'discipline' b/c 'disciplinary methods' aren't linear among parents
I’m just gonna give you a dictionary definition haha. I have no special definition for discipline. Style of discipline is different, yes, but discipline is discipline.
what about hugging your children and telling them that you love them? isn't that a better way to get their attention?
Haha I don’t mean get their attention just to talk. It’s for when they are misbehaving and are disregarding your discipline. It just lets them know you’re serious.
Do you think it's ever okay to hit your kids?
Kind of. A swift spank can be appropriate to get their attention when they’re misbehaving, but it’s a fine line.
