Corporal punishment reinforces racist stereotypes in the Black community and has no place in the Trufant household. They don't hit their kids, ever. In this episode, Marcus and Jessica reveal the most effective and emotionally mature ways to punish their kids that don't include spanking, whooping, beat-downs, or whatever you call it these days. Spanking might feel like an effective punishment for unruly kids. But, if you stop and think about the long-term consequences - it's just not worth it. They also talk about how they were disciplined growing up and the differences in disciplining girls vs. boys.
