Hace unos días esta persona con un cargo absurdo como pretendida representación de la divinidad en la Tierra, dijo estas palabras textuales, en relación a los atentados en París a la revista:
“Pero si Gasbarri (Alberto, responsable de los viajes pontificios, que estaba en ese momento a su lado), gran amigo, dice una mala palabra sobre mi madre, puede esperar un puñetazo.”
Si esto no llegó a tocarme las narices a pesar de que su frase contradice COMPLETAMENTE a la inteligencia de La Divinidad, y de Jesús- a quien creen representar… y a cualquier persona con una inteligencia normal que no sea tan simple de pegar a los demás por entrar al trapo de tan absurda cosa; Lo que ya me toca las narices a un nivel pero bien gordo es que se atreva a decir que pegar a los niños está bien, sin que su dignidad sea dañada.
Parece que va de “pegar” la cosa con estas absurdas salidas de personajes que creyéndose demasiado el papel de guays y de papa bueno, dice tremenda tontería. Y sí me toca las narices pero bastante, porque cuando se trata de niños y viendo que la gente aunque inteligente no es lo suficientemente inteligente, y que nunca aparece de Jesús en los evangelios (los 4) que pegues a nadie Y MUCHO MENOS A LOS NIÑOS, NI UN PALO, Y DE HECHO LAS PERSONAS QUE MAS RAZON LLEVAN SON LAS QUE ESTAN CRIANDO A SUS HIJOS HABIENDO CORTADO ESA CADENA DE USO DE VIOLENCIA Y EXASPERACIÓN CON LOS NIÑOS O CON SUS HIJOS.
Esto ha provocado una serie de comentarios de padres, madres y educadores que cortaron con esa cadena, y que lo siento pues los pongo en inglés pues es en The Guardian, donde lo he leído; si no sabéis inglés traducidlos pues merece la pena,
I admit to having smacked my child – not in cold detachment but in frustration and despair. I was not happy about this and spoke to our health visitor who arranged a meeting with a child psychologist, a wonderful, non-judgemental woman who taught me coping strategies. My own upbringing was dysfunctional which hampered my abilities to manage my daughter and she helped me come to terms with this as well. Within three weeks, I had a happy, co-operative little girl who has grown up to be a delightful person, academically and professionally successful and, more importantly, a wonderful mother to her own (non-smacked) children. I was so grateful for this supportive care. There is a world of difference between sadistic child abusers and frustrated and desperate parents who smack and feel awful about it.
My problems arose many years ago when I felt able to be honest about my shortcomings. How many parents today would readily confess to a public official that they had smacked a child for fear that they would lose them to state ‘care’? How many would get the support and guidance I received? I have often felt that it would be better to replace judgmental and condemnatory attitudes with offers of practical help. Leaflets and advertisements by the NSPCC and Social Services, for example, saying something like: ‘Do you love your child? Do you sometimes smack? Do you wish you didn’t? We can help you.’ This won’t affect the sadistic abusers of course, but it might help many loving but non-coping parents to develop happier and fulfilling relationships with their children.

Good for you. After several sleepless nights – I picked up my little girl – probably about 18 months old – and was about the shake her – as I was so angry – and luckily I had a rush of intense shame. This tiny little thing, that I loved so much was crying – not to annoy me – but because that was the only way she could communicate HER frustration. I am mightily glad I had that moment. That moment of “what the hell are you doing ?” stayed with me all my life.
Hi Hillydown. Thanks for your post. The biggest regret of my life is that I smacked my children. I also had a dysfunctional upbringing, smacking was part of that and to my shame I carried it on my children. I wish I could change the past but I can’t so I’ve done the next best thing and have apologised to them. Hopefully that will break the chain.
We are told that there is less violent crime in our society. Is this because children are now not being taught at home and school that violence is not the answer? When I was caned at school by a fag smoking deputy head it only taught me that his being bigger and stronger put him in control.
