I just had to unfriend somebody for posting on Facebook that we should beat our children. Dang it, people, in this day and age—!!!!!
Fortunately, she was an acquaintance, nothing closer than that.
But after the crap I went through with Richard and Tracy and how they beat/choked their children, and reporting them to CPS, and then getting stalked by them for a year for speaking up about it, I don’t want to go through this crap again with somebody else!!!!
I was already wary of this person after I heard her cuss at her kid one day. But this confirmed it. 😛 If she had said “spank,” I would’ve let it pass. But she used the word “beat.” 😛
I quietly unfriended her shortly after reading her post, and did not take a screen print. But as near as I can recall her post, it was:
Parents, you should beat your children. You need to be their parent, not their f**king friend.
Um….There’s a HUGE middle ground between beating/abusing children and being too lax. 😛
[Update 12/6/14:] In early 2014, I saw her at a checkers tournament. Hubby and I both were appalled when, during a discussion on child abuse, she justified grabbing her little boy’s ears, saying it didn’t hurt him, etc.
She may have said other things as well. But this confirmed my decision to unfriend her. Well, that and some abusive things she said about Hubby later on, which caused me to block her as well. I also saw her smack the boy in the mouth once for using the same language she herself does.
