My fifteen year old. Is out of control. - He s had trouble in school. And will be repeating ten grade. His attitude is poor and he wants to engage. In a power stuggle. With me. I have grounded him instead of giving him a good hiding and now feel a Hiding for him is the way to go. I previously had spanked him OTK. When he was younger. I feel he has out grown that particular techiwpquebut needs to have his hide tanned. it's been recommended. To me. That use a paddle. On his hide. I am considering that but haven't done it yet He is also on probation. And his probation officer would order detention if I consented to it. But this Detension includes. Corporal punishment so not sure that want to do this. Ian open for suggestions. etc However. I now believe a hiding is needed

Nope, just as I thought, you don't get it.

Corporal punishment is corporal punishment, no matter if it is meted out by "detention", or a parent who thinks they know it all.

Your kid has issues, and you really think beating him is going to solve them. Sorry, that doesn't happen, especially not with an already angry and on probation 15 YO.

The fact that this kid is ON PROBATION is a red flag that your raising of him hasn't met his needs.

Actually, you would be HITTING a 15 year old, it IS assault, and if he was smart, he would press charges.

All you would be doing by hitting him, is making him angry, and teaching him hitting is fine when someone disobeys or does something you don't like. Your kid sounds troubled, he doesn't need physical punishment and the emotional turmoil that goes along with it. Grow up man. If your co-working does something you don't like, do you solve it by hitting him/her?

You both need counseling. You clearly do not have a healthy relationship. Your son needs help, not a good beating.

Of course hitting a teenager is not acceptable. Maybe if he had actually been parented when younger instead of getting hit you might not be having problems w/ him now.

AShawn. - Thanks for your email. I believe you don't. I UnderstandIam seeking help for him. . What happening. Here. first off a Spanking. Is not a assault. And by no means would I assault my son. I am seeking help for him. And at present time haven't been able. To get any.help As far detention and corporal punishment is convened I believe there is a big difference from just a spanking. And corporal punishment therefore up to this point haven't consented to it. I understand. You may be Anti spanking and that fine. However Inmy view. A good hiding is some times necessary and that's what lending toward doing to me this isn't a assault. So please understand that. thanks Jim

So...you would rather physically assault a cognizant human being, thereby proving your prowess, and demonstrating your control, than be an adult and address the situation intelligently?

Way to be an adult. Oh, wait... I mean way to demonstrate that you have no better method than treating your kid worse than an animal.

If he is already on probation, do you really think more assault is going to help? Great lack of logic. Perhaps attempt a parenting course to learn better methods. You don't want him to go into detention because that would include corporal punishment, yet you'll gladly beat him yourself?
