Ok, I was trying to post a reply to a question about slapping hands but then it was closed. I don't want to start a debate here, I just want to know what other mom's views are on spanking?

I personally do not spank. I think that I have many other more effective tools than spanking to use as a means to teach, reach, and educate my child on his actions. I know that the parents that I have worked with who have spanked, including friends and colleagues, have reported situations that seem to escalate instead of teach or stop the behavior. If someone came to you and said that there were many awesome ways to assist your child in learning how to make better and appropriate choices without having to spank or yell....would you do it? And that these methods mean you have such a polite child who is respectful and kind? For me that is a no brainer which path I want to take. If you don't want to use your hands to punish your child then there are many great parenting books available to give you other philosophies of parenting.
