Beating Your Kids by Russell Peters

Definitely something to ponder about: beating or no beating? I guess we shouldn't go for the two extreme ends, there must be a balance somewhere. I believe that beating with the intention of educating our kids to become a better person is OK. Beating because we are stressed out with work is NOT! Beating them when we are not in control of our anger is dangerous. But not beating them at all will teach them that they can get away with murder. So, as Russell Peters says, beat your kids.

No doubt about it, that is the teaching in Islam.

Hadith - Dawud, Narrated As-Saburah

[Also recorded by Ahmand and al-Hakim. Al-Syuti has give in a notation signifying that it is authentic. ]

The Prophet said: Order your children to pray at the age of seven. And beat them [lightly] if they do not do so by the age of ten. And separate them in their bedding.
