  • not really.. I've spanked my 5yo a couple of times but no, we don't actively use spanking to discipline.

  • Never. I know spanking doesn't work, it doesn't teach good behavior.

  • No for 2 reasons~ 1) It doesn't work, and 2) We found that speaking calmly and reasonably is far more effective.
