Singer Kelly Clarkson revealed recently how she spanks her kids during her own talk show and netizens are not happy.
The leading performer opted to dedicate an entire episode of her show to speaking about how parenting can be difficult for some people and it’s just one of those things that she happens to struggle with too.
Therefore, for her, discipline means everything in the world. And she’s just following the behavior patterns and habits that her own mother used to utilize when she was a child. This includes punishing her kids by spanking them.
But the news had a lot of parents frowning. They felt it was not only incorrect but something that should be avoided at all costs. Others found the behavior to be abusive and one that should be shunned for obvious reasons.
“How could a mother behave like that with her own kids? It’s wrong and it needs to be removed instead of the star promoting it”- added another.
All in all, the general consensus by so many people is that this behavior must be stopped before it gets too late. “We are living in the 21st century, how can spanking be considered a norm? It’s abuse and it’s instilling fear in a child while promoting to others that hitting them is alright”- another furious netizen was seen voicing her concerns.
Clarkson says sometimes she can’t help herself because if her kids misbehave, it’s like that Southern mother instinct in her comes alive, and she must do it to feel at peace.
While some offered their own two cents on the matter, others felt Clarkson should seek therapy and also wondered what other practices she uses to discipline her children.
