for you parents who are deciding whether or not it is effective to hit a child, just go ahead and read the thread below to see how it becomes a pattern. Once somebody hits a child, then the kid will grow up and will do the same to their child.
there's a word for this.
It's called sins of the fathers and this type of behavior usually lasts generation after generation for over 100 years before somebody breaks the pattern. I bet every one of these people advocating it with their stories of how their parents whipped them and it resulted in correct behavior, also had parents who were hit, grandparents who were hit, and great-great grandparents who were hit.
I'm not a fan of Molyneux, but the video linked below is worth your consideration.
