i am not totally "against" spanking. i try not to do it and dont think its the best way....i have always been suprised how often my sister in law and father in law ( they live together and basically parent together) spank her son 2 years old. and i was angry when they spanked mine once 4 years old... but now they are spanking the baby 9 month. just for like getting into stuff and "hitting" but really its just natural arm movement the baby makes! they dont beat the kids or anything, but am i they only one that thinks its inapropriate to spank a baby??Answer Question

I agree that is very inappropriate. I don't care if the baby isn't being beat, spanking any child under the age of 2 years is very sad...I don't condone hitting just sometimes kids need a swat on the bottom but kids that are old enough to understand what they did was wrong. Babies are just learning and exploring their environment.
