Whats goin on guys? Been gone for a minute and I'd like to start a topic for discussion, and hopefully not shoot myself in the foot in the process. Okay, so... I don't wanna start a war here but I must ask my fellow community this question: Do you believe there is a difference in Discipline (in the context of a major offence, issuing a few swats on the butt and a lecture) and Child Abuse (striking /hitting a child on any part of the body with the intent to inflict harm.) Now let that stew as I tell you why/how this got brought up. I have a Facebook page (GASP!) and it just so happens the feed on the right hand side of the page, the one that updates every 15 seconds or so, I see one of my friends posted a link as a comment to a picture. Here's the Picture: And here is the link: https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/184894.pdf So after seeing the picture and reading the short PDF article, I was inclined to say something about that. His response: My Response: His retort: At this point, its obvious he's not really arguing my statements, just kinda repeating his views. My response: His response: That pretty much ended the discussion between he and I. I have about 200+ friends on my friends list and I gladly shared this picture on my timeline with one a word title "Agreed." Thus far, those who have responded/liked the picture were also in agreements with me. So, maybe with a bigger audience than just my Facebook friends, I ask you fellow users and abusers of Android, what is your take on the picture? How do you feel about a good swat on the butt and a lecture vs sitting in a corner for 10 minutes as Discipline? Please be open and respect every ones own individual opinions. This is meant to discuss and think, not yell and hate.
