  • My kids are teens (and very well behaved I must say) so I don't spank them now..they're bigger than me and it just doesn't work that way anymore. But when they were a lot younger I used to spank them at home only. There are too many opinionated people out there that will verbally attack you in public. I know the difference between discipline and abuse and I never needed nor wanted a strangers advice.

  • Yes, and no...because I don't want to be chastised in front of my children, and there most likely would be someone around to get in my face about it! I also won't argue with my husband in public, though...

  • yes and I take them to the bathroom or home. Usually if people are around you get an earfull and the cops called. I know the difference between disipline and abuse.

  • Yes, and and sometimes. If the child is older I tend not to spank, but sometimes a little embarrassment goes a long way into helping a child behave properly.

  • Yes and Yes I'm lucky that where we live you can spank your child in public and not a big deal is made out of it!
