Re: Belly punching - do the Japs have a cure for teen mania?
I am a believer in traditional ways. God has the Bible tell us to strike swiftly with a iron rod. So that is what I use. Five or six swings and any child stops complaining or that incessant whimpering.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
Use of the rod has the added benefit that my knuckles cannot become bruised or scraped.
Proverbs 13:24He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
My children know I love them. One look at them and there is no doubt
Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Amos 3:6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
Numbers 21:6 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Matthew 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Matthew 10:36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
