Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

Is this thread only for deal related ethics or general ethics? If the answer is the latter I have a question. I lifeguard by a pool and I saw a father hitting his 5 year old child multiple times on his bottom for a fairly inconsequential thing, I could see a real anger in the fathers face as if he was hitting him because he was actually mad. What would you do?

Confront the dad, try and calm him down and talk some sense into him. Help the kid.

Totally agree. The father will never think anythings wrong unless confronted at the time. If confronted after the fact he'll just brush it off that it was nothing or that you misunderstood the situation

I think that it can make it worse. The dad maybe got mad because the son did something trivial but caused him embarrassment. If someone comes over, he may get even more mad at his son.

I highly doubt the father will listen to anything you have to say (not you specifically but anyone) it also might make him angrier, and make him take out his frustration more on his son.

Maybe say something like "listen the pool rules are no physical contact, as it can lead to slipping into the water not my rules just letting you know" 

This way you are putting him less on the defensive, and he might actually think abt his actions- as opposed to if were to say to him "in my opinion....." U are putting him on the defensive, and he will never listen.

I was raised Roman Catholic and it is pretty simple for me. We are all God’s children.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
