This week, Tre’vell and Jarrett are addressing another controversial topic: spankings.
How individuals choose to raise their children is often a very personal decision based, in part, on how the parent(s) were disciplined themselves. Whether it’s spankings, time-outs, withholding privileges or some combination, everyone has an opinion on what’s the best way to raise good kids.
Reenforcing positive behavior and correcting negative actions in our children is important in most households but are their differences across ethnic lines?
Jarrett and Tre’vell take a look at their own upbringings, what they think spanking did (or didn’t do) to impact the kind of adults they grew up to be and reveal why they think some people actually deserved a good chancla to the head.
A Tough Question

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and Jarrett Hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
