This is a fear based response to child rearing, which is in rooted in surviving g slavery. If we don’t want our children to have a slave “just obey” mentality, we have to stop treated them like slaves. A better way to “discipline” someone out of dangerous behavior, is to explain the consequences of it…teach the child to READ and THINK his way out of difficulties…don’t think you are any different than a slave master if you are going to beat the child into submission.
Yes I understand exactly why black mothers spank; and I am not shaming any of them. But it is fear based, and not an optimal reaction.
