I started going through and seeing if I could identify what these books are in my life, but they’re all represented fluidly by about 3 books.

Also, if people could stop calling what Adrian Peterson did to his 4 year old son “spanking”, that’d be great.

It takes an endless amount of patience to handle a demanding child, and lots of people don’t have that patience. We also happen to live in an age of instant gratification, so the idea of spending 10 full minutes getting a child to calm down is agony. People are hurried, stressed, and selfish. If they try beating a kid and it “works,” they’ll go right to that well the second the kid acts up. Beating a kid is fast and easy, which is what makes it so terrifying. And no parent ever thinks of him- or herself as a child abuser, no matter how bad the abuse gets. There’s also a strange political bent to all this… a “Don’t tell me how to raise my kids!” attitude, where people demand the freedom to punish their kids however they like, but their kids are not allowed any freedom FROM that discipline.

Why Do People Hit Their Kids?
