Dear Ann: I was disappointed in your response to the girl whose mother used the strap on her. The gym teacher noticed the bruises on her legs and backside and called it “child abuse.” Why are you against strapping a child when the Bible tells us in plain language that this is what parents should do? The Book of Proverbs mentions many times that the rod must be used.
Proverbs 23:13 says: “Withhold not correction from the child for if thou beatest him with the rod he shall not die.” Proverbs 23:14 says: “Thou shalt beat him with the rod and shalt deliver his soul from death.”
There is no substitute for a good whipping. I have seen the results of trying to reason with kids. They are arrogant, disrespectful and mouthy. Parents may wish for a more “humane” way, but there is none. Beating children is God’s way of getting parents to gain control over their children.
