  • OH!
    ok. good cause this whole thing could've gone south very quickly.
    I don't think it's a bad thing. I pop the kids on the bum every now and again (when they were smaller)

    Please change the word Beat to Spank otherwise you are gonna get tore up.

  • If you are leaving bruises, then yes it is wrong. It shouldn't ever get to that point. I tell ppl that I know that I am gonna beat my child. But that's just a figure of speech. I NEVER would hurt my son physically. If someone feels the need to beat their kid then they don't need kids. There is a difference in discipline and beating.

  • Spanking your kids is one thing and beating quite another.
    I have no problem with spanking, three swats or less to the padded part o the body done without anger.

    I d have a problem with beating a child anywhere. That is in anger. You are doing for your benefit and not the child's.
    There is no need to swat more than three times. That is enough to getheir attention and change their direction. More than that and again you are doing it to bully and not to help the child to do the right thing.

    No it is not acceptable to beat your child.

  • A spanking for misbehavior is good. Even if it is in public. I have had to do that with my son. Now that he is getting older I don't have to do that as much... lol

  • Let's call that spanking then, shall we?
    I have not had to spank my son since he was in diapers. A flop on the butt taught him who was boss, and he never questioned it again.
    He's 18 now, has a job, is on Honor Roll, and I swear I've only had to raise my voice to that boy 3 or 4 times his whole life.

  • A spanking isn't all that uncommon.

    Beating is something you should worry about the police interpreting.
