Tua Tagovailoa Shares Disturbing Story About How His Dad Disciplined Him After Bad Games
Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN ran a piece on Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa and his father on Saturday prior to the SEC Championship game. In that video Tua shared how his dad disciplined him after his bad games...
quote:

Tua: If I don’t perform well, perform the way I’m supposed to, I’m going to get it after.

Rinaldi: When you say “I’m going to get it”, just be clear what you mean there, Tua.

Tua: Well, just know the belt was involved, and other things were involved as well. It’s almost the same with school. If I don’t get this grade, I’m going to have to suffer the consequences.


Yikes.

And Tua is now a heisman candidate, will graduate college, make millions in the NFL, and carries himself with class and dignity instead of being a thug POS. Maybe, just maybe, a dad being involved in his kids life and disciplining him leads the kid to grow up successful. Imagine that

Or that kind of abuse will lead to mental health issues later down the road.

There is a difference between getting a whipping and being beat. Media always blows stuff out of proportion. That being said, still a little extreme.

More parents need to spank their kids when they screw up. They'd be less thugs running the streets. Tua loves his dad. His dad luvs him. Liberals would tell u a time-out is ok for car-jacking.

My dad hit me a few times growing up. I deserved it. Last time he did it I was 13. He told me he wasn't going to hit me anymore. It was my time to be a man and make better decisions. You don't beat anybody with a belt, ever. Especially not regularly. It's stupid that you equate what Tua's dad did to some spanking. There's a big difference between spanking a kid or beating their arse for doing badly in a sporting event. Funny how you automatically assume he would be a thug if not for those beatings. Then bring up the liberals in the argument out of nowhere. Sounds like your dad beat your arse a little too much.

I was raised with the belt but beating your child for underperforming in a sports event is psychotic.

Bingo! This isn’t a debate about right/wrk g methods of disciplining your children, it’s about whether or not any kid should be hit for a bad sports outing.

At what age is it ok to stop correcting behavior with physical contact? Should we pummel employees when they don’t meet expectations? If not, why not if it “works” to correct child behavior?

If you really pay attention, you will see there is no age limit. Adults typically can be corrected with non physical contact because they are experienced at reasoning, logic, and will rarely continue to act in a way that is self destructive. But to use your example, what do you after you have corrected an employ too many times, resultingly fired them, and now they are throwing a fit making a scene destroying property and unwilling to leave the office? You call the cops. And they try to convince the person to leave but if that fails they....use physical contact.

If Tua said his dad whipped the family dog with a newspaper because it chewed a rug, the hard-asses on here would be crying about the "poor little pup" and calling for Mr. Tagovailoa to be thrown in jail. But beat his kid with a belt for playing poor football, and he's father of the year. LOL.

How do we get better journalism than this Larry character. I don’t comment often, but I am sold. Larry for real, you are garbage. Total non story, but let’s make it so. Sure it happened just like all you hymens are spinning.

That explains why he's terrified of getting hit. Soft as cotton.
