  • Only with hands, no objects and it served me as well. So I do the same with my children.

  • My parents whooped my butt, when I was bad. I do not feel abused

  • I was spanked with many different things. A hand, a belt, a switch from a tree. I never had bruises from the spankings and they stopped when I was about 9 or 10. There were not that many of them. I don't feel abused, I don't feel that I was violated in any way by this form of discipline. I did spank my own kids and they say they do not feel abused or violated either.

    The things that hurt me the most as a child were words, not spankings. Words and other things like eye rolling or smirking. More sublte abuse. But spankings, no.

  • I was never spanked as a kid. I, too, am fine. I think I turned out pretty well. My parents were smart people who knew that discipline means "to teach", and did a good job of teaching without hitting. I'm raising my kids the same way.

  • I wish I could find some of these abusive parents that were described here and punish them and show them how wrong they were, avenge them for you myself. It just breaks my heart to read what some of you lovely Moms have had to endure from people who are supposed to love you. And one Mom says it is still happening and she is not okay. Please, don't let that happen to you. You do not deserve it. Nobody deserves abuse.
    . It should not have happened to you,ever. I am so sorry.

  • I can't remember ever being spanked. My parents were strict, but I guess not much into spanking. I was always quite well behaved, I learned my lessons, lol.
