I am so happy that you turned out so well under your childhood situation. My husband faced the same in his youth yet he knew right from wrong once he was grown.
WORN1...I can understand where you are coming from as well.
Spanking sometimes is what a child understands and its because of the embarrassment imo ! I only got spanked a few times, no nothing that actually hurt me, but boy was I embarassed and I did not do it again let me tell ya.
Whats most important, as others has said, there is a difference between beating and spanking. Tapping a toddler's hand once, popping achild on a pamper once really is more of a 'shock' effect and can be very effective. View Thread
Congratulations to all of you who have health insurance and have been blessed to have companies who offer it and may even pay for part, if not all of it.
That is not the case with thousands of companies and millions of people who dont have insurance.
If the government wants to mandate, why not start with making each company offer health insurance at a reasonable rate? Without using the excuse that a company is too small. Clump those companies into one group under a particular health provider, that should make the insurance the companies offer very reasonable. View Thread
Having lived in the USA and Canada I can honestly say, imo, the USA is extremely! overpriced and its just a 'game' within the system. Ins companies, government, hospital owners. Its very very sad. View Thread
