According to Joe Jackson, we are doing it all wrong. On a recent episode of CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Joe expressed his opinion that these days parents are “soft” when handling the disciplining of their children. Today there are numerous parenting theories and techniques. Those of us who have children know that it isn’t always a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to parenting. So what are Mr. Jackson’s complaints with regards to our parenting?

“Yeah, they are too soft. One of the reasons I say that is because kids nowadays are killing their parents in some cases,” Jackson said. “Let’s get into this ‘beating’ thing. There’s no such thing as ‘beating a kid.’ You whip them or punish them over something they did, and they will remember that. And they’ll remember it in such a way that they won’t do it again. That’s the way I was.”

Many of us are aware that there were some mixed opinions when it came to the way Joe Jackson allegedly raised his own children. Despite this, he is very vocal about his thoughts on how everyone else chooses to raise their own kids. For more on this story visit The Grio.

    I think there are differdnt strokes for different folks but beating a child.is never ok. I think spankings and beatings are totally different. Beating is way too harsh for for any child while spanking js a firm reminder if inappropiaye behaviour.

At the St. Louis, MO school’s request, Veronica Williams must sit with her 4th grade son all day or he will be suspended if she can not find another adult to supervise him. The school sites behavioral problems and class disruptions as reasons for this odd request.

Normandy School District’s Barack Obama Elementary School recently suspended the 10-year-old after Williams found it impossible to attend class with him and maintain her daytime job after a two week attempt. She and partner, Tiara Newlon, who has also accompanied him in school, say that they have no issues with his behavior at home.

“I was willing to do anything with the school. Whatever type of help they were trying to give and I’m still trying to do it, but as far as someone having to sit in school with him is ridiculous,” Williams said.

Chief Administrative Officer, Phillip Boyd, stated that it’s the school’s “responsibility to ensure that the entire learning community is safe for all parties” and they are “committed to providing students with the most productive and safe learning environment possible.” Williams’ son has yet to be let back into school without an adult after his last suspension.
