Spock is a piece of shit! My 10 year old cousin is a nightmare because my psychotic aunt refuses to do anything when he does wrong. It’s always, “Tell me why you’re doing this, son?” or “How does that make you feel?”
The little demon went through this phase where he would run up to the men in the family, punch them in the balls, and run away laughing like a little bastard sprite. He stopped when I grabbed him by the hair after doing it to me (landing a pretty good shot) and slammed him on the grass while outside tossing the football. Little bastard went running inside crying, and my aunt proceeded to castigate me for “disciplining” him. I said, “You won’t, so I did.”
That didn’t go over well, but hey, the little chit doesn’t play that game anymore.
That completely made my day, LOL.
Everybody I know got spanked as kids. We rightly feared the consequences of misbehaving. Kids today know they have nothing to fear from their weenie parents, so they act like beasts. Case in point: recently I was in Target, and a kid in the shopping cart was howling and screaming like something possessed. Not crying, mind you-—howling, to get his way. His numb mother’s reaction was to walk around going, “Sssssh....hush now...ssssh”, with no effect at all.Meanwhile, the rest of us had our eardrums blown out.
