Spanking 15 Year Olds

I am being spanked as a 15 year old boy. Isn't that too old?

Moderator - Yes, that is too old for spankings.

\\BUT if your parents/guardians are punishing you this way it might be because you are not behaving as a 15 year old boy should behave.

When my father wasn't looking, I was the target of Mother's hostilities and frustrations. AFter he abandoned us, it was constant.

When I was 14, she came at me with a studded belt. I simply grabbed it from her hands. I had no intention of hitting her, but I wasn't going to let her hit me any more, either.

She went from there to psychological manipulations.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Pascal I only now saw this blog question today so am sorry to have not answered sooner. Yes, you are too old to be spanked BUT if your parents/guardians are punishing you this way it might be because you are not behaving as a 15 year old boy should behave.

Listen to what they have to say about your behaviour and then modify your behaviour to fit their rules as you are in their home.

Your life will be much more pleasant if you obey parental rules and, one day, you will be moving out and will wish your own children to behave well. If you have no example to set them they will also be unruly/badly behaved.

Spanking may work on a child,but not on a 15 year old. There are many more effective methods available today, for example: take away the Smart Phone, I Pad, don't let them "hang", etc., but put a time limit on what you do. Since you are making a void, fill it with something positive.

Carla, your posting is so poorly spelled, I can't figure out what you're trying to say.

Are you saying that your 16 year old daughter died a few days after you beat her?

That's what it sounds like.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Oh my goodness my daughter is sixteen and after she kicked off a few days ago having thought that she could be spoken too . I gave her a good old fashion slap on her legs who care what people think l have four girls two grown adult men and truss me when the police officer came after l called them l gave them the option to listen as l explained when l reapetadly ask my children to cooperate and they feel to disrepect me and it could cause some fatal accident...of course they gonna get clapped. Well l am still hear so are they,no brusies or abuse but bwoy she had learnt some very simple manners very quickly. Sixteen or not she never in her wildest dreams thought she would ever get clapped so her manners left her behind for the correction.

Pascal, is spanking the first response or the last? I believe 15 is much too old to be spanked.....thank goodness you didn't say BEATEN BLACK AND BLUE.

How would you prefer to be disciplined ? Have a talk with your parents, if they are the ones spanking, and tell them how you feel. If perhaps you are in a private school who still disciplines with a paddle.......then talk to your parents about that also.

With so many children today who are not disciplined at all, it is refreshing to see someone cares.......the old fashioned way at least.

Mike, do you know something that we don't know - for example, the reason why these parents spank their son?
---Rita_H on 2/5/16

\\Yes, the scripture Jesus sights recommends even harsher punishment than spankings. So consider yourself fortunate.
---Mike on 2/1/16\\

First off, the word you're looking for is spelled "cites."

Next, the stoning punishment was NOT considered applicable to a male past puberty.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Matthew 15:4-7 God said, Honor your father and mother and Whoever insults his father or mother must be put to death. 5 But you say, If someone tells his father or mother, Whatever help you would have received from me is given to God, 6 he does not need to honor his father. You have nullified the word of God on account of your tradition. 7 Hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you ."

Yes, the scripture Jesus sights recommends even harsher punishment than spankings. So consider yourself fortunate.

Why have you been spanked lately, pascal?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 1/31/16

Yes it is too old and your parent need help. They need to be shown how to discipline and 15 year old son. Spanking is the worse form of discipline however old or young the child is.

If you are misbehaving at the age of 15 you also need some correction. If you don't learn to behave well now you will end up being disciplined by the law of the land.
---Rita_H on 1/30/16

Pascal, the biblical rule for discipline is to train up a child in the way he should go. Mental and emotional maturity isn't determined by age. One could have a child's mindset well into physical adulthood. Emotional immaturity and an undisciplined mind causes one to be hard headed and rebellious of authority, which are traits of a child. If that is you, then yes, you are in need of correction. Scriptures states "The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself brings his mother to shame." Apparently your parents considers you to be one in need of wisdom. Are you? If so, I doubt spanking will do you any good at your age anyway, so their efforts are futile. Respect your parents authority, or leave their home.
