The 24 things every black mother said is a blueprint for discipline. Kids will understand the real world when they step out into it as grownups. I cannot for the life of me why any parent would be afraid to tell the deal to kids on what kids own.
I would and will let a kid know in a New York second a kid doesn’t own anything in the world. When they have kids… they will understand.
The reason why the black community is going to hell is not getting the belt on the backside. It is the lack of respect and subordination by those that are lower than the other. It is the knuckleheads that reject discipline and believe that they are something special when they aren’t.
Parents aren’t supposed to be friends and punishments aren’t supposed to be fun… but knuckleheads think they can do what they want and nothing bad will happen.
You don’t get to talk to your parents any old kind of way.
You mind your own business.
You don’t roll your eyes at your parents.
You will do as your parents said.
You aren’t going to win any cool points being disobedient.
It ain’t just black mothers that say these phrases. Black fathers uses that no chill disciplinary phrases to keep kids in line with the steroids. White mothers say these phrases as well. White fathers use the same no-chill discipline. I have even heard Hispanic fathers use these same codes.
This is discipline:
This is a 16 year old righteously getting her ass whupped for cutting out of line. You will get no sympathy from me. Last I checked… as long as you are in your parent’s house and eating their food… you are subject to the rules of the house or else you suffer whatever consequence there is.
Now this is child abuse:
Locking up 13 children for no fucking good reason in foul conditions and no food is abuse and I would literally hunt down and kill these parents if I was living anywhere near California. That was foul. That is child abuse. You don’t ever fucking lock up your child in foul conditions with no food.
That here is a fine line between child abuse and good old-fashioned righteous discipline.
