I, for one am sick and tired of hearing how spanking is hitting. Spanking can be hitting but it is not automatically hitting. Spanking, administered the correct way: loving discipline, is by far not hitting and the child that is not disciplined is not loved nor is he able to know that he is loved. If a child isn't shown that they are loved, they don't love themselves or anyone else. You can't give what you don't have. I don't and won't ever beat the hell out of my kids. BUT!! I will discipline my kids for disrespect and/or disobedience. They all will tell you that I have never hit them and that they know I never will. The key to proper discipline is self control.

I do sometimes, but not often. My rule is use the hand not a tool. I have an 8-year-old boy and sometimes he just will not listen or do what I tell him too unless he gets a spank. However there is a fine line between a spanking and a beating. My dad used to beat with a razor strap. That is why I only use the hand.
