Questions Concerning the Possibility of an Openly Gay NFL Player, and Dr. Brown Takes Your Questions

  1. Is anyone else getting a garbled broadcast? It’s cutting out and sounds like everything is overlaid with them speaking over each other.

  2. Yes I believe parents have the right to chastise their children. I don’t see taking a switch to the backside of a child by itself to be wrong necessarily, though of course it could be done for the wrong reason, out of the wrong attitude, or done too harshly.

    All those things have to be weighed. It’s not necessarily child abuse. See Hebrews 12, and especially take note of verse 11 which says that chastening can be grievous, though I don’t believe it necessarily has to be all the time. I believe it depends on a lot of things.

    I’ve seen young children grow up so amazingly within a year by parents who would keep a wooden spoon with them and that was their attention getter with their young children who would be prone to complain, not be quiet, or sit still during home Bible fellowships.

    They didn’t hit the child at all hard, it was more like the only thing hurt was their feelings about having to be corrected.

    I’ve seen them cry a bit and I’ve seen the father gently explain why he was spanked and he would get a “yes” from the child, so he knew why, and he was at times even told to stop crying, being told very softly and gently by the father, and I saw those young children grow up so much in a year I was amazed.

    And we would take a short break from whatever we were doing, just long enough for the parents to get this under control, which usually was no time at all. We just kept quiet and let the parents handle this and it seemed in less than a minute, we went back to what we were doing, just as one big happy family.

    The children learned to quickly get over their troubles. They knew they were loved. It was wonderful to see.

  3. The issue is not about corporal punishment for children. This football player was not simply a good parent who chose a particular method by which to discipline his child. That has nothing whatsoever to do with him. He is an abuser. There are two entirely separate issues at play here. He is not married to any of the women with whom he has sired offspring. He is obviously a delinquent, like many men in our country, unfortunately. To be frank, there is a major problem in the African American community with respect to fatherhood and parenting. This has nothing to do with normal child-rearing methods. That is a completely different discourse.
