Donald Trump is on the side of spanking and has expressed that sometimes kids need a good spank to get them in line.
He says that more than 50% of parents spank their children, while it is a tough and controversial subject.
“It’s a pretty tough thing because I saw something last night that much more than 50 percent of people out there and parents out there are spankers,” Trump said.
While admitting that he was never a “spanker,”, Trump said there’s “no simple response” because many parents physically discipline their kids and they turn out “good.”
No one justifies beating children, but that butt was put there for a purpose! I received my share of them and I am glad! If I got any I did not deserve, there were some I deserved I never got. It all worked out!
Donald Trump is a bit low on the figures tho. Politifact reports that:
A 2013 study by Columbia University researchers found that 57 percent of mothers and 40 percent of fathers engaged in spanking when children were age three, and 52 percent of mothers and 33 percent of fathers engaged in spanking at age five.
Disadvantaged families represented a large share of the survey group but the results are consistent with other studies.
A 1999 article in Clinical Child and Family Psychology Reviewreported that 72 percent of parents of children between the ages of two and four said they sometimes spanked their kids. A 2002 poll commissioned by ABC News asked a random sample of adults if they had ever spanked their children. Over half of them said they had.
“Spare the rod and spoil the child!” If the gun control enthusiasts would concentrate more on the solidity of the family, we would have less gun crime!
So many families are fatherless, and THAT is the real problem! Children are not being raised, they are just growing up.
I can see the headline in Liberal media already!: “Donald Trump Admits To Being A Child Abuser.”
