OH YES I HAVE!
I have been told (here on CM) that my daughter most likely behaves horribly because i don't spank. I was told that all children who are not spanked are the ones who misbehave. My daughter is an ANGEL!!!!! She is so precious & sweet! She couldn't hurt a fly, & she always listens & behaves. I thought those were very ignorant comments. And also felt those moms were trying to attack me. Maybe deep down they felt guilty for spanking, & just did not want to believe that you actually can discipline very well without raising a hand. Whatever though, i do not spank. I %100 believe that there are much better effective methods than harming your own child, & i feel pretty strong about that.

my son was spanked maybe twice when he was little. He is 9 and when he does something bad he loses a privilege or allowance. He is very polite at a family function yesterday my nephew was biting his mom and hiting her. He does it all the time he does because he gets away with it. I would love to be able to spank him!
