Adrian Peterson Suspended For the Year

Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings was notified today that he has been suspended without pay for at least the remainder of the 2014 NFL season, and will not be considered for reinstatement before April 15, for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy in an incident of abusive discipline that he inflicted on his four-year-old son last May. Peterson pled no contest on November 4 in state court in Montgomery County, Texas to reckless assault of the child.

  1. Celeste There is a difference between abuse and discipline, sadly some don’t know the difference

    And no Elizabeth discipline doesn’t always mean a whoopin.

    But clearly much of what is happening now isn’t working.

  2. Yes some are that is why I work with the school systems to hear and be there for the children with no one to speak to their needs with out violence being their reward for a need to be seen and heard

  3. So discipline always have to be a whooping? Really? As adults what does that say about us? Our parenting skills? Hmmmmmmm it can work both ways. They are not raising themselves. Well, some are.

  4. Yes there is a balance to be reached..but first that takes dialog, and starting discipline with words at an earlier age, whooping’ is a form of disabling but beating to blood is abuse I know I lived it, skin looking like the busted flesh of the girl in the exorcist, clothes sticking to my back, stripped down to nakedness and beat until she got tired, blood and bruises everywhere including my face, beating with what ever was. Handy, iron pans race car tracks, boards, belts, switches, bats, and one time if my sister had not stepped in a sludge hammer, broke the door down with it to get to me….. it can go to far..bottom line, balance and it must be balance with knowledge Wan Sheldon

  5. I’ve seen the results of some of this “new technique” parenting. And sadly we have a generation of some of the most disrespectful and LOST kids.
    This timeout mess got kids in stores throwing temper tantrums, talking back, cussing, interacting with grown folks any kind of way, pregnancy out the wazoo, prisons filled with our young men.

    And I absolutely believe a huge percentage of this is a result of lack if discipline. Soooo… okay yall think a whoopin is abuse, isn’t raising a negative statistic equally abusive?

  6. The majority of “WHOOPINGS” back then was abuse. So why would anyone think it is ok to do the same to children? They keep saying back in the day. Back in the day that is what it was whether we like to admit it or not
