My son is 7 years old. Here is my question for you, I would like your opinions, especially for those of you who are mothers of boys. I don’t believe in a man beating on a woman, but I do believe in a man defending himself. Let me explain…When I was younger I have memories of my mother just beating on my father and he would just take it, trying to get her to calm down, and yet she wouldn’t. I mean it got bad, at times she would throw stuff at him!
This is my belief today…a man Is much stronger then a woman by all means so I don’t think he should beat her, but I feel that if he gives her a warning to quit putting her hands on him and he tries to walk away, then he has the right to defend himself…I also say this because I teach my son not to hit girls, I teach him to give them a warning to leave him alone and try his best to walk away….and if he cant defend himself…Like any mother I don’t want anyone picking on my child boy or girl….Like I said before a man/boy is stronger by far then a woman/girl and therefore a man would only have to give one good hit. If I had a girl I would let her know that if a man gives you a warning to leave him alone then do so……no one has the ok to lay hands on you….ever. what is your take on that???!!!
