  • Yeah I am serious just wondering what other people think. I think that kids are getting away with to much and maybe if I spanked my kids would turn out better citizens

  • Ok. I will answer then. I see nothing wrong with spanking, as long as you do not leave marks on the child. I have spanked my own son when he was younger. It depends on the child, some kids do not behave better if they are spanked, some times you need to find something that makes them no you mean business.

  • I just see all the kids in the US going down hill when it comes to behavior and I was spanked growing up and I think I turned out ok. I keep a good job and function ok

  • Hug them afterwards? I have never spanked my son then turned around and then hugged him.. He would think I was nuts..

  • I was spanked and ill tell you the last time i got spanked i was 5. I knew by then what i was aloud to do and what i wasnt. I think spanking is fine. I know if my son acts up when he gets older ill give him a good swat on the butt if he needs it. But hes only 3 weeks old now so i still have time lol
