I do not understand how anyone can ask a question like "is it ok to beat my child or whipp my child or yell and scream at my child when they don't listen" WOW and you wonder why they don't listen to you. When they are exposed to too much neggativity they strive for it, meaning they don't know what possitive emotions are. they have never had a possitive family life. The only thing they know is mean, anger, acting out, yelling, screaming, hitting, biting. I realy think if you knew how to communicate with your child in a possitive manor they wouldn't act like they do. I think personaly if you have to hit your child you should not have had children in the first place. Children need love and understanding, compassion and happiness. I have 2 children and have never beat or hit my kids, my oldest is 12 and straight A's in school, my youngest is 5 and is so well behaved. I am so proud of my kids and couldn't imagine laying a hand on either of them....
