Lol I feel like browneyedgummibear would enjoy this.yessss!!!
I got spanked for my bad grades. It didn’t make me make better grades…tutoring would’ve done that. I always managed to pass but I was a C and D student.
Hell no, if my children fuck up they need to face the consequences. If you mess up at your job your boss will yell at you. If I messed up (grades, chores, anything) my 24 year veteran dad would yell at me without hesitation and it made me a lot stronger and a lot harder to break.
Not everyone’s the same and repeatedly yelling at a kid for struggling to learn is very liable to create psychological disorders when you’re not acknowledging the kid probably is actually trying but has any number of learning disabilities that prevent him from succeeding. ”It worked for me” is not an adequate excuse.
I got mixed feelings about this. My parents were pretty strict about grades (we were poor so without scholarships, there was no way I was going to get to college) and I did get yelled at if I got a bad grade. But at the same time, they’d usually asked me why I didn’t do well first. If I had a legit reason, I wouldn’t get in trouble and they’d try to fix whatever was going on. But, if I was just slacking, all hell broke loose. So, my view is that it needs to be balanced. If grades slipping is due to something going on or an issue, then yelling won’t help anything. But if a kid is just not doing the work they’re supposed to then, yeah, yelling and discipline are called for.
That’s fairly reasonable and in no way disputes Ben Stein’s comment. At that point you’re not disciplining them for bad grades but for not doing their best/slacking off. As long as you’re willing to get to the root of the problem and actually fix it, rather than relying on yelling and beating a child to make them do better.

I think it’s really hard for bisexuals because there is the illusion of choice. Because obviously being in a gay relationship isn’t as easy as being in a straight relationship. [x]
