  • I would say a teenager is too old to spank. I just always felt like it was weird; I don't know why.

  • you actually made your screen name "spankingmom2" you are so proud of spanking.? mm well let me ask you this..so say your dd hits another little girl at the playground..DO you go over and spank her and say "no hitting"???? you do realize that its so hypocritical right? so silly too. you hit your children in order to "teach" them right from wrong? i was spanked as a child withthe belt..it was awful and rediculous..i never understand how its effective.

  • WOW! You need help. Spanking at any age is WRONG!!! When you do something unacceptable, does you husband hit you?? No, it would be considered abuse!! It's the same for children! HItting is never okay, never.

  • You choose how you react to everyone, including your children. You are therefore teaching them it is ok to react with violence when some one else in their life does not agree with them. How about breaking the cycle of hitting.

  • Spanking is assault on a child. It's ALWAYS wrong. It's consider a crime if a man hits a woman, or if a woman hits a man. But it's legal to hit an innocent, helpless CHILD? Our society is seriously fricked up, I tell you.

  • I can't say I agree that spanking is the same as assault, but I've come to believe it is counterproductive. You might get results for a while, but I think it only exacerbates the problem. If you do spank, I would say that by about four you should be done with spanking.
