COMMENT | There were several parents who came to the defence of the volleyball coach who was caught on video slapping two teenage girls. I find that disgusting.
Maybe people say that parenting styles are the prerogative of the parents, and I agree to a certain extent, but it stops at physical abuse. The coach isn’t even a parent to the girls.
I have never hit my children nor have my parents ever hit me. My children are far from being brats (except my three-year-old son, but he’s just a monster and not a brat!) and so am I.
So, we are clear proof that there is no truth in the saying ‘spare the rod, spoil the child’...
