It`s back! The debate over the backside!
Adrian Peterson carried the ball on this latest chapter. It looks and sounds like he did a bad thing---a bad thing that years ago some thought wasn`t so bad!
You`ve heard the phrase time heals all wounds, but when it comes to what parents can and cannot do to their kids today ---this phrase needs an update : time means no more wounds.
When I was a kid, I got 'the belt' a time or two---It hurt, left a mark and I deserved it!
Today, google parent arrested for spanking and you`ll get a bunch of stories like this.
When I was a kid, I had a friend who dropped the f-bomb! His parents kindly dropped some soap in his mouth. That happens today --mom and dad can wipe away a clean criminal record.
When I was a kid, when friends screwed-up they went to bed without dinner. They were punished with hard labor on a hot day like digging a hole. Today, an empty stomach and an empty spot in the ground would likely have CPS digging around.
It`s not easy being a strict parent anymore. Time means 'no more wounds' from any of these things (spank, soap, food, shovel) --it seems there`s only one way to keep kids 'in-line' today and that’s to get them offline!
