I am a spanker. I can admit it. I absolutely hate having to do it. My brothers laugh at me for my "ritual" when a spanking is coming. I preach to my son (age 7) about why his behavior caused the spanking, the spanking happens and then we preach again about what he could have done differently to prevent a future spanking.
My brothers ask me why it takes so long to do it my way but I prefer to be consistent and make sure my son understands why his actions cause a spanking and what can be done in the future to prevent it. I think the communication keeps Connor informed about what is to be expected and he is aware of what the consequences are.
Am I the only one parent that believes in talking in conjunction with spanking?
