Quick question: Does wanting to end child abuse make you a Communist? Let me explain…
My husband sent me THIS LINK from Face Book that has a video about not physically or emotionally abusing your children. It’s based on the premise that parents who yell and hit have children who yell and hit. It is originally from this website: Children See, Children Learn. I am glad to have another resource to add to my list of organizations who are in line with the Vision and Mission of 153Promise.
Again, like yesterday’s post, I began reading the comments. (Warning: it could ruin your day.)
People got SO ANGRY from watching an anti-parental bullying PSA! They defend hitting their child, say that’s why we have brats is due to lack of spanking, and then it degrades into a political debate…
People post the quantum leap that videos like this are the work of the Liberals/Socialists/Communists in the US of A. They started making comparisons to totally unrelated issues like gun control and fighting in the Middle East.
Then, I noticed a trend… the ones who were upset MOST at this video were the ones who were spanked as a kid and who defend spanking their own kids! That legacy is the EXACT TREND the PSA is trying to end!
Perhaps if those negative posters were shown more L.O.V.E. as a child, they would not be so miserable today.
If my commitment to raise my child in a trauma-free environment makes me a Liberal, then so be it. I will LOVE my children liberally. I will liberally shower my children with kisses and hugs.
Make it your #153Promise to join the TFPP- Trauma-Free Parenting Party, no matter what your political affiliation!
