My good friend thinks spanking is a good way of diciplining her kid. She talks to her and when her daughter doesnt want to behave after being spoken to, she will spank her.
I was spanked when I was growing up, and I don't think its a bad thing, when its deserved but at what age is it appropriate to spank as dicipline?
What do you all think of spanking in general?

I think that if you do not want to spank then you do not have to. There are many other options available. Many people pit it as spanking vs. time outs. I don't really do time out either. This doesn't mean there are not punishments or consequences. There are. If you don't want to spank or yell...then don't. Go to your local library and get some parenting books. Read those you find interesting. Take what you want from then and chuck the rest. What I observe is parents who spank are still frustrated. As equally as parents who do not. So I choose to be frustrated and not spank. I also choose to correct, redirect, and teach without the need to spank. While not a popular view point, I view spanking as hitting. For many years I was involved with assisting victims of violence. At this point I cannot tolerate violence of any kind. While I understand that people do not view spanking as being the same
