    Re: Is this family court judge unfit?

    My biggest problem with the video is all the things that would probably make it inadmissable from a legal standpoint make it all the more disgusting.

    She videotaped it, which to me suggests she wanted to catch him in the act, which means she knew what was going to happen to her.

    To me this means this likely wasn't a one time thing. It wasn't the first or the last time this guy did this, and so the "I went over the line and apologized" nonsense goes out the window.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    Wouldn't this argument mean that a bankrobber couldn't be prosecuted based upon security camera footage because the bank knew it was likely to be robbed at some point?

    Re: Is this family court judge unfit?

    I am in favor of limited corporal punishment for kids -- a couple of swats on the behind with a bare hand, delivered with the tiniest amount of force.

    I'm not in favor of using a belt, a switch, a wooden spoon (my mom used to use one), or other objects. The point of a spanking, IMO, isn't really to inflict pain. It's psychological.

    This guy was out to inflict pain.

    I agree, Johnny. I've always thought a spanking was more about breaking a child's pride a little bit after doing something wrong, not hurting them.

    That guy was beating the tar out of her.

    I was always told that one shouldn't use the bare hand because the child will then "associate" the hand with something negative. Now obviously that doesn't mean you grab a 2x4; but my Dad had a wooden paddle. And he didn't beat the crap out of us per say, but he'd give us anywhere from 5-10 good whacks with it. He'd then tell us to stay in our room to think about what we did, and then he'd come in later to talk it out. But we were three hard headed boys growing up. We never learned. LOL

    I agree. Break their pride (somewhat); but not their spirit. A very strong-willed child can be very difficult to deal with. But even so, that's no excuse to beat the tar out of them. Especially when that type of beating (abuse) isn't going to accomplish anything positive other then fuel hatred and resentment in the relationship. You've then defeated the whole purpose of correction.

    Shades of the scene in the "Sixth Sense" where the little girl videotaped her MŁnchausen mom poisoning her.

    Scary stuff. What happens to the girl if the Dad would have found out about the tape while she was still in his care?

    If the belt fits, the judge must quit.

    Yeah, I've heard that as well. But honestly, I'm the one administering the punishment, so my boys are going to associate me with something negative, whether I'm using a tool or not.

    And yes, spanking is completely about deflating their egos and teaching them that inappropriate behavior has consequences. Spanking is the final consequence, and honestly, I rarely have to use it. Warnings and the loss of privileges are usually enough.

    By the way - how are those boys of yours doing Johnny? How old are they? Give me some updates buddy, and maybe some pics. I still remember when you had your first one.

    I think being a parent taught me more life lessons then anything else.

    I never wanted to break my son's pride.

    They're doing very well. My oldest just turned 5. He'll start kindergarden next year. My youngest is about to turn 2. He's loves sports, especially football. He's got a fierce pitching arm, too.
