Is spanking torturing a child? It's a little pain for a lot of gain; a little pain to underscore a lesson. Those who don't care for their children are content to just let them grow up, and are deluded, thinking that simply explaining to the child will work wonders.
    Those who don't care for their children, often neglect their welfare by failing to punish them for bad behavior before a selfish, uncaring and stubborn attitude gets embedded in them.(2 Chronicles 22:3,4 "...his mother was his counselor to do wickedly...for they were his counselors after the death of his father to his destruction"); that is, when they are young and easily impressed -Ecclesiastes 8:11 "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil."Job 15:35; Psalms 10:4-11; 36:3; 50:19,20; Proverbs 12:1-8; 14:8; 20:17; 26:24-27; Jeremiah 5:23-28; 9:8,9; Hosea 12:7; Mark 7:20-23; Romans 1:29-32.
    Instead, such dumb ass parents risk correction of their wayward kids by an even more severe teacher – prison. "We all pay the price when improper or destructive parenting leads to things like drug use, violent rebelliousness, murderous rampages in our schools, promiscuity, or reckless and/or drunken teenage driving. Bad ass parents are a severe killer disease, a sickness as hurtful as any other, when their negligence results in others' deaths." ...William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
    It is criminal to deprive a child of a firm set of guidelines for his actions. Without them, he or she becomes ripe material for disaster – prostitution, drugs, car accidents, fights, danger at every turn, the fast nowhere life.
    A child needs to understand right from wrong. Delinquent youths have both immature senses of themselves and delinquent parents. They do not imagine themselves contributing positively to society in their future years, instead being concerned mostly with 'what's fun for the moment, what can add to my status now?' -Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people perish, but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.".Another translation.(JPS).has it that 'without vision, restraint is cast off'.

Parents just must provide a child with direction, which includes enforcement of direction, until a child begins to see benefits accruing toward an ultimate goal.
    Peer relations are important. Make sure your children are only around higher quality children of extensive morality.
    A good church is a place to find such intelligent youngsters to fellowship with, but get to know the parents there too, because their children will be like them. Find out this first before committing your child into fellowship with other children.

Children cannot learn to relate in a loving way without understanding of right and wrong, and if a child is left to 'figure this out for himself', he is deprived of any wisdom a parent himself may have gained living life that could be imparted to him.
    If a child doesn't think it's important to not act like a maniac, then he might. That's why proper and fitting spanking as deemed necessary by the parent. With a wild child, many sessions of spanking and teaching over the course of his growing years may be necessary. With a milder child, only a few maybe.
    A good parent concerned about his or her kid(s) will always act in the best interests of the child and not according to frustrations the parent presently may be experiencing.
    Avoid being or becoming a 'dumb ass' parent. If you know of some kids with them, pray for the kids and the childish ignorant parents.
    Pray what comes to your mind when thinking about them.
    Dumb ass parents are selfish parents, gaining time for themselves at the expense of what could instead lead to a quality future for their children. They sacrifice their children on the altar of selfishness – so ignorant are they.

Exposure to violence lays the groundwork for angry violent behavior. Add to this exposure, poor nutrition and selfish dumb ass don't care a damn parents who function in a moral vacuum, and what chance has the child got?
    A major study in Dunedin, New Zealand, has shown that allowed and unpunished misdeeds in the early years predisposes a child to later criminality.
    Children learn by observing how their parents and others treat them. Out of fear of punishment children learn control of initial angry impulses and retaliatory actions. Coupled with proper teaching, empathy, the basis of all moral behavior, is developed in them.
    How many families talk about plans of doing good for others not of the immediate family, and how many children are taught the meaning of the word compassion, and what kindness means, and honesty, patience, understanding, mercy, forgiveness, and what things beauty comprises, virtue, and acts that are commendable.
    Kindness can't be learned in a vacuum. Involvement with parents and others is needed. A child needs to learn that doing what's generous and kind results in rewards – character rewards. A child needs to see his parents and others doing such actions.
    Listening to quality music.(different for all of us).with your children aids them in developing greater intelligence in mathematics, spatial reasoning and problem solving skills. ... Adolescence, Winter, 1999.
    Violent TV and movies, and video games trains kids how to hate – how to institute revenge, how to threaten others, how to learn to view death as not being a finality.

So what is – 'wrong'? A child is showing his thoughts by his actions. If the child acted in a manner that shows hate, greed, theft, risk of, or injury to another – basically, the actions of a selfish brat, then he or she deserves a lesson that could very well keep him or her out of the way, when older, that leads to being a perpetrator and/or victim of some of today's horrible senseless crimes – kids killing teachers, and other kids, kids intimidating others, bullying them, making their lives uncomfortable, kids on the way to adulthood trying all that they please, drugs, wild driving, excessive consumption in areas that may interest them, including late night wild parties filled with the immediate selfish excitement of wild abandon, losing their figure and becoming porkers, making them even more distraught with themselves.
    Proper discipline, includes spanking for behavior that refuses to conform to principles that would guarantee a better life for the child once he or she matures.
    A child's curiosity will lead him to try many things that are dangerous – a hot stove, in a tantrum running away from parents onto a busy road, biting and/or badly scratching their siblings, and doing other cruel things to animals and people.
    A smart parent will believe Him who made us when it comes to advice for child rearing. A stupid 'to hell with tomorrow dumb ass' parent will simply allow the child to grow up and "find his own way". Yeah, right into prison!
    God constantly is chastening us, getting us fit for the highest position in life with Him that is possible for us.....continues
