Oh, please...

What's with people thinking that if you spank your kid you're DEFINITELY going to damage them beyond repair?? And what's with the people who think that if you don't spank them they're DEFINITELY going to run wild?? How about if we all discipline our kids in whatever way WORKS and not judge another parent for doing something else that works? Not spanking is fine, as long as they learn discipline. Spanking is fine, as long as they're not abused.

No anonymous, I'm fine whether you agree or not.

  • I agree 100%!!!! I am a spanker, my best friend is not. It is something we do not agree on and so we do not discuss it. We do not garee but her son is not mine and my daughter is not hers so we leave that in the do not talk about list!

  • Agreed! I spank my son when needed... but some kids don't respond to it! As long as kids are getting discipline... WHO CARES!

  • I do agree with not judging parenting decision when all things are equal but it doesn't apply here because spanking is never OK.

  • Rhonda, that is your opinion the point of this is not to judge. I think that some things I see parents do is wrong and many people may agree with me but I do not judge. You know what I feel like people who let their kids eat junk food all the time is abuse! Not everyone feels that way and give their kids junk food all the time. Will it hurt them in the long run all studies have shown a big fat YES but people still do it. It is not my job to say anything just like it is not your place to say I am wrong for spanking my DD's butt when she will not listen!
