Black&White child discipline

I want to know from black and white folks how you were treated as a child. Did they yell at you,beat you, make you feel low? I'm black and I know our parents beat us ,yelled loudly and made us feel like shit.. Can't say the same (yet) for white.

One thing to consider, and this isn't exactly a skin color thing specifically, is this antecdotal evidence:

When it was time to take a bath did you hear a variation of:


- "Are you ready to get into the bath?"

or

- "Get into the bath."


It's interesting how kids from various households learn rhetorical questions very early. It's a phenomenon that early educators have to deal with often. Some kids don't know how to deal with a teacher who doesn't speak to them like their family at home. And lets say you do know how to speak differently. Well, kids will pick up on how you speak to these kids one way, and these kids another way.

Still it's nice to know, when our bodies wear out, we can get another

I'm white, 51 years old. I was never hit, slapped or kicked as a child and rarely if ever yelled at. I was disciplined, but not in that way.

This is a stupid thread tailor made to feed into a white supremicist mindset.

what a stupid comment.....

i had a mean step-mother who would threaten to hit me with a switch but then i would just tell her that she was not my real mother

she was white but kind of a redneck

i remember once living next to two black kids who got a beat down on a regular basis (always felt sorry for them)

i think it boils down to your zip code more than anything else (like in the south there are 19 states that allow corporal punishment in schools still)

Not to be a supremacist ,I'm black and always wondered did the white kids get beat and fussed at as much as we did.

And yes lower income beat alot more. That explains The South and being that more blacks are lower income that would explain part the black beatings.
