Smacking is necessary, if a child runs into the street, you would not wait for them to be ran over by a truck and say "you deserved it" to their lifeless body. You would intervene and discipline them in a tangible way. In essence, you give the child a little bit of physical or emotional pain now to avoid a lot of pain later. amirite?

There are plenty of ways to effectively get that point across rather than striking your child, whether it be in good means or not.

"...with a low price that's under 30 dollars !" ..but what they really mean is $29.99, amirite?

Don't hold expectations so high and you will never be disappointed.

You think that parents should be allowed to physically discipline their child as long as they are not doing it out of anger, amirite?

Children can be difficult to reason with, but if you are capable of taking the responsibility to have children in the first place, you can take the responsibility to raise them without resorting to physical violence. It not only misses opportunities for "teaching moments", but uses those opportunities to teach violence and disrespect. While Iwas being brought up by my own parents, my mother would spank me when I got into trouble. Because of this, my mother and I have never been too close. I grew up with a great disrespect for her and her methods for discipline. I understand she was doing what she thought was the best way to raise me, but that doesn't change anything. My father never once spanked me, but just talked to me with reason. I'm not saying physical discipline is the direct cause of this, but me and my dad have always had a great relationship. Even as a child I knew it was wrong. Yes this may not be the case for every child, but it is still morally wrong. Spanking is for the lazy/lousy parents who don't know how to discipline their child in a suitable manner. You should just talk with your child as an equal and help them to understand what the problem is.

@VictoryAAC I think that physical punishment should only be used at young ages when children aren't old enough to understand a...

Albeit true I didn't know the term "respect" or the practice as a child,I definitely still felt an amount of respect towards people just as I do now. As far as reasoning goes, I was aware. The thing is as children, we view the world differently. It is up to the parents to teach the child the reality of living through communication. If you spank a child and then explain to him why you did so, he may stop for the time being. This is because he/she is afraid of being struck again by someone he/she thought they could trust and know they would never harm them mentally OR physically, not because they know what they did is wrong.

It would suck if while reading this post, you were in a public restroom taking a shit and had to think about all the sweaty smelly fat guys getting their nasty butt sweat all over the seat you're sitting on and having their moist remnants follow you around on your ass the rest of the day, amirite?

I try to refrain from using public restrooms as much as possible, but if so, I always make sure those sanitary toilet seat cover things are available.

You don't appreciate just how hilarious That's So Raven and Kenan and Kel were until you watch kids shows today. amirite?
@Blake11roys Who loves orange soda?

TheTubbyToaster loves orange soda! I do, I do, I do!

Tomorrow's probably a woman, because it never comes. amirite?

You're doing it wrong.

Living without religion can really improve your quality of life, amirite?

The word here is "can", not "will". I think the down voters are misunderstanding the post.

You would rather suck on Satan's unwashed rectal thermometer than drink McDonald's sweet tea. amirite?
You appreciate that <script>if ( currentUserUsername ) { document.write(currentUserUsername+" is an active user");}

It sucks that it's 100 degrees out and the people in my city think that it's nice out because of how hot it usually is. And it's funny how people can become so accustomed to the weather like that. We think 60 degrees is cold, and people in other places think 85 is hot. amirite?

Unless you are in Texas where the weather doesn't have limits. :\

Pretty sure that guy was Alaskan.

If you're seeing little dots here, then it's probably time to clean your computer screen, amirite?

I see dots on the i's and under the question mark.
