I used to get hit when I did something wrong. My dad would threaten me with a wooden spoon |8 Idek.
i got the wooden spoon too.
and like, it was even harder for our parents when they were kids.
my mom told me that her parents used to whip her and her siblings with a belt when they misbehaved. sometimes it would be the closest object they would find.
i’m all for giving a kid a good spanking if they need one, but shooting the laptop, and making a show of it on youtube, that’s just ridiculous and to feed his own ego.
mm, i think it was a bit showy of him too - though i guess in a way he was sort of expecting that reaction. it’s that ‘shock’ factor that he wanted and he definitely got it.
like i mentioned earlier there are other and better ways to approach the situation.
