1 (who?)
I read something on the internet about parents using tickling to punish their kids. One mother wrote that she, her husband, and their other children would gang up/have court on a child who had done something wrong and decide if they would be punished and how long it would last. The mother would then give her child a bath and walk them naked (yeah, naked) to the guestroom where the family has a hospital bed and tie the child to be punished with medical restraints. The child's siblings kiss them before they and their mother start tickling the punished child all over for a period of ten minutes or longer.
Another person wrote that when she lived with her aunt she was always punished by (again) being tied naked to a bed for hours and tickled senseless. She said that this caused her to have great relationship with her aunt and that sometimes the tickling was so intense that her stomach would hurt for days.
Is it just me, or are these people sick and wrong. They say that tickling is a good substitute for spanking when it comes to punishing, and that it's used in orphanages around the world, but I don't know, I think it's pedophilia and child molestation. What do you think? I'm desparate to know if I'm the only one who feels this way about tickling used as a punishment. It makes me sick to my stomach to know that parents treat their kids that way and it makes me cry for the children. Please comment! I really want to know what you have to say about this!!

I know Iīm reviving a old topic, but whatever, I have to say my opinion about this.
Compared to the atrocities that my parents make to me, being tickled for 10 minutes is not that bad. Considering that is not everyday, and after that, the parents hug the son and go all love (I read that story too), for me is a better way of punishment than spanking merciless your children, sometimes for much more ten 10 minutes, coupled with a gigantic grounding time, that is absolutely not necessary. When Spanking, the parents got carried away a lot of times and overdo it, and to complete, still submit the children to another punishment, the grounding. But, when the only punishment is Tickling, is a lot more difficult to got carried away, and the punishment ends when the tickling ends. For me, tickling is a superior form of punishment than Spanking (when the parents do it right, obviously, like the mother in the story does), but is really a bit awkward.

I just feel like tickling should be used for fun and expressing love. I hate spanking too, and know how adults can use spanking to abuse their children(I even read an article on Yahoo news about spanking leading to mental problems; no joke)but I don't think tickling is a good substitute, especially if the child is naked and being tickled and trialed by everyone in their home.

Well, nobody is perfect. Trying to avoid spanking, mostly because she hate it like you and me, the mother in the story found a substitute in tickling, and it work for her. If is only the family, with no friends involved, I donīt mind the naked part. Of course, itīs a bit awkward when they become teenagers, but I think it help the family being united and that sort of story. But at least, they do it carefully, watching out for any problems that may occur, contrary to some parents who spank they children merciless, injuring them in the process.

True, true. It's just so complicated. Like you said, no one is perfect. The one thing I can hope for, is if I have children, I'll know the difference between dicipline and abuse.

hey i read about that too! I was doing research on it when i found your journal. =/ dude i know how you feel! It's both sick and wrong, but those arent the only stories i found about these poor kids. This one girl's parents put her in stocks out in the yard and let the neighbors tickle her for hours! Other stories i heard is this one boy's parents tie him to the bed and they've tickled him for four to six hours and make him say some oath while theyre tickling him and wont stop tickling im until he says it right! This is what i consider abuse, just straight up abuse! I mean what are these kids supposed to do when their freinds or bfs and gfs playfully tickle them? This is traumatizing.

It sounds very...unconventional, to say the least.

I think regular spanking would probably be more beneficial than this. And less....akward for everyone.

I do too and "akward" doesn't begin to discribe how I feel about this.:no:

i remmeber when i did somthing wrong like fighting with my friends(who suffed sevral bruises at the time) i would get spanked. End of story. I would cry, and I woudn't sit down for a good hour. And to me THAT was harsh. But TICKLING? Now THAT seems inhuman. Not just being TIED NAKKID to a bedpost- infront of a room full of PEOPLE- but being tickled for ten whole MINUTES? How is that better than a spanking? I mean can you say TRAMATIZING?!?!?! O.oxim

Anyway- wow i just got side-tracked by that toast there... ummm yea akward. AnyWHO! I would glading want a spanking, a strap, or even a ruler across the knuckles than be ticked nakkid by some stranger.
