    [h=1]1 in 3 Canadians suffered some form of child abuse; linked to mental disorders[/h]Published Tuesday, April 22, 2014 8:54PM EDT

    TORONTO -- One in three adult Canadians suffered some form of child abuse in their past, experiences that put them at a higher risk of developing mental health disorders later in life, a new study reports.
    The data paint the first nationwide picture of the prevalence of child abuse experienced by Canadian adults, lead author Tracie Afifi said of the study, published Tuesday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

    i find this very upsetting. i hate kids as much as the next person but i don't think they should be abused.

    I got the belt on a few occasions. Would get smacked if I got outta line. By both my mom and dad. I turned out just fine.
    Just the way it was back then.

    For the record, 2013 homicides in cities of comparable sizes or smaller:
    Chicago 415 (fewest in 45 years)
    Houston 201 (second-lowest since 1965)
    Philadelphia 246 (lowest count since 1967)
    Detroit 332 (only the fourth time in 30 years that murders have fallen below 350)

    Toronto 58


    Maybe we need to beat our kids more?

    Our definitions of "abuse" have changed drastically from when I grew up. You can no longer give your child a smack in the mouth if it shit-talks you, whereas in my days, we'd get the dryer-belt.

    My understanding is that you guys are far more lenient. :dontknow:

    This.

    The fucking chickens are coming home to roost, because now we're on the second full generation of parents having no fucking idea how to parent.

    I'm not condoning abuse of your kids, but a quick rap to the head works wonders for shit-talking, and gets their attention without leaving a bruise. I know from experience, by about your third or fourth of these, you begin to recognize the limits of unacceptable behavior.

    It is 3 out of 3. Being raised Canadian should be considered abuse in the civilized world. Fuckin mulleted Bret Hart fans.

    Kinda fucks you up to have a kid look you in the face and tell you to fuck yourself, and not be able to do anything about it. CAS has decided that a smack on the bum is all that is acceptable - good luck with that on a 13 year old.

    They've tied our hands, as parents. My understanding is that the US allows it more.........am I wrong? I mean.....clearly their kids are more fucked up than ours, but is it because they aren't allowed to discipline them anymore either?
