If I have a plate with different types of food on it, I eat the thing I like least first and the thing I like most last, and there are pretty much no exceptions.
I do something similar, but whenever I am thinking I bite my tongue, I don't notice it at all, only after I am done with thinking and realize that my tongue is sore as hell.I bite my lower lip whenever I'm thinking...which is pretty much all the time. I think I also make weird over-exaggerated faces when I'm talking to people. Sometimes when I go to Walmart to pick up something I get lost in thought and just wander aimlessly around the store. I also have a bad habit of staring at people; I don't even realize that I'm doing it until they give me an awkward smile or something.
There is probably a lot more weird stuff that I do, but this is enough for now.
wow, beating animals and children with a stick. so badass
yeah AphroditeGoneAwry wtf is wrong with you??
Oh dear. It is a harmless black crop with a little bitty splat of leather on the end that barely stings. I have parented five children. I have learned a thing or two about sparing the rod and spoiling the child.It must be the long reaching stick of God
I would say that if it's so harmless and you barely feel it, then there is no point of even using it.Oh dear.

I would always prefer my children and pets mind without needing reprimand, but, alas, that is not usually the case. Children need to be taught to mind. They are not born perfect.
People who have never parented would not understand. And people who have limited parenting experience either. I have a well-rounded parenting repertoire and I have settled on using the rod when necessary.

Though tbh, where I come from it's not really eccentric to beat your kids, but from seeing (and feeling) a lot of cases like that, I can surely say it doesn't help in anyway to reprimand the kids, it just produces a lot of negative feelings.
^there are beings capable of reason and beings too young or too "dumb" (human toddlers/non-human animals) to be capable of reason; to willfully inflict pain upon the latter for their "sins" is sheer barbarism imo, with a possible exception in a case where their behviour is actually endangering them and all other means to stop it have failed. using violence against the former merely demonstrates your own incapacity for patience and rational discourse and teaches nothing more than that violence against a being more weak and helpless than yourself is an acceptable method of conflict resolution and that fear is an appropriate tool to use in the service of behaviour modification
good luck with your stone-age morality
I said the way I perceive I "LOOK". Not necessarily when I wield it.what i find most disturbing is how you proudly wrote that here like people would appreciate and be impressed by your "badassery"
no point in saying you're smart since thats going to be decided by the listener.I am very intelligent.
Abuse is a very different thing than discipline, for sure. If people are struggling to survive, then parenting will be more challenging as well.
My heart goes out to your children.No one likes a mouthy child. I put up with it for many a year. And still put up with way too much of it. The house runs so much more smoothly when problems are dealt with quickly, and we can all move on to regular life.
Used to be (when my kids ran my life), acting-out and temper tantrums could ruin an entire afternoon for everyone. And result in yelling and breaking things, all the way around. A little pop is a much better solution, believe me.
I lost the count of how many times I scared people like that. I got to the point that is easy, and fun, to play walk behind someone within their footsteps sound. Besides being silent I also like to walk in the dark. I like the dark very much actually. I only use light if is absolute necessary.People get scared when I walk into a room because they never hear me coming. I am a ninja.
OH my gosh! same!I have a really hard time following movies because I can't remember names and faces. I often forget people's names if I'm asked or if I find myself suddenly needing to refer to them (not close friends, but sometimes people I've been acquainted with for a couple years).
I'm the oppositeSpeaking of "when I was younger"...
I remembered as a child, I would sometimes get in trouble for doing something to one of my younger brothers... and my mother would say, "Tell your brother sorry!" and I never would, I would only say, "hush". Which is some Jamaican slang I picked up in my household that crossed between "shut up" and "don't worry, everything's gonna be fine" lol
I eventually stopped telling anyone i was sorry, instead using "hush" as my scapegoat...
As an adult, it has been unfortunately replaced with "My Bad"
