  • No, I don't hit my child and I never will.

  • I do, but not often, and when they were younger. Now that they are teens, I find they don't need it that often. Amazing.

  • Not since he was 4 and he is now 13. I found that spanking didn't work and it was the easy way to discipline. I have a very respectful, polite and well behaved teenager and he was rarely spanked and not at all in the last 9 years.

  • Nope. We do not believe in teaching children that hitting solves problems.
