If you got spanked growing up, was it on the bare bottom? If so, do you spank that way now?

  • Yes, I was, and no, I don't. I don't believe in spanking. I know it didn't work on me, and there is no way on earth I'll ever spank my child(ren). How do you teach a child not to be violent if you're doing the same thing to him/her?

  • I was spanked, and I didn't turn into a psychopath. I pinch more than I spank. Bare bottoms are never involved, unless the kid happened to be naked ( like bath time) when a pinchy-pinch was needed.

  • spanked with a belt, very very rarely and never more than once per very very rare spanking. also rarely got mouth with soap.

    As a mom I've occasionally spanked my kids but worked best and works best is to take away things longterm.

  • "spanked with a best, very very rarely ...." Meant to add never spanked barebottom, always through clothes and again - the spankings and mouth soap were very very rare. Parents really kept us in line by controlling hours of tv and as teen by taking away the car.

  • i use all other methods before spanking yelling, taking things away, writing sentences, extra chores etc.. & if I do spank its on the butt NEVER on the bare bottom & only with my hand. it's rare I have to spank.

  • When we spank (last resort) it is on a panted bottom ... unless he is already pant-less. OR - if it is a severe infraction. Is he abused? NO... is he disciplined - YES. Does he 'fear' us... NO.

  • i was spanked with whatever my parents could reach. not bare-bottom, but with things like slippers, those chinese back scratchers, rulers, etc.. and i don't spank as extreme as my parents, but i will give them a smack on the hand, on the butt if they did something really bad (which is rare).

  • I got spanked with a belt and a gun rod till I had welts on my back and was bruised up very bad. I spank my son ONLY as a last resort when nothing else works and I only use my hand.
