breaking bad drinking

if i decide to raise kids i’m going to speak to them like people when they do something wrong. i can’t believe there are people who got hit as kids who are already determined to put their potential kids through the same trauma! maybe you can look at it with humor now (defense mechanism btw) but hitting babies is not a funny or lighthearted thing. most of the issues i had with my parents stemmed from the corporal punishment they misguidedly used in their parenting
