"Here in Oklahoma, they actually had to pass a law to clarify what constitutes abuse as opposed to acceptable corporal punishment.  The lawmakers determined that parents can spank their kids--even use a paddle or a switch--but that they cannot…"

Rick Shelton replied to Benjamin Maxwell Rogers's discussion Lost in anger & negativity
"The sending the child to get a switch accomplished two things.  It allowed time for the child to think about the infraction and it allowed the parent time to cool down.  You really don't want to punish a child while angry."

"Mother was abusive physically/verbally but never put-in-the-hospital abusive. I hesitate to suggest that I had it that bad when I know there are those that had it much worse than me."

N. Vest replied to Benjamin Maxwell Rogers's discussion Lost in anger & negativity
"As some one who came from an semi-abusive home, some times you have to let the anger out. Workout, get a punching bag go on long walks/runs. Do something to work the the stress off. It will help a lot with keep the anger to a manageable level."
