  • i think a swat on the behind is appropriate ONLY if the childs age is appropriate as well. and only if it is something extreme, i think its a last resort.

  • I do, I talk to my son and tell him no and worn him that if he don't listen to what I say he will be spanked, if he still don't listen he will get spanked

  • I used to until I learned other ways of parenting and learned to control my anger.
    Through learning, I realized that my anger and spanking of my children, sometimes heavily, was a result of the years of abuse I suffered as a child and in my first marriage.
    Thinking back on the times I can remember spanking my children make me cringe with self-loathing and disgust.
    I have observed that even a light swat on the bum or the hand teaches the child nothing at all.
