  • It all depends on what you loud you yell and or if how hard you are doing the spanking.

  • Inconsistent discipline is worse, the type of discipline is irrelevant.

  • I would think spanking would ussaly be worse. Physicall pain ussualy lasts longer in their minds. Hower, yelling can be just as bad. At least, that is what i think.

  • Yelling is worse

  • I don't think either is worse, it just depends. Everyone's idea of yelling is different. Some think that anything above conversation voice is yelling. The same with spanking. It varies. Some barely pat the butt and call it a bad spanking, some whack away with all they have and say they are going easy on the kid.

  • I don't believe in spanking, and I'd say another choice from that you offered if you can, but best answer I have is
    good question! both can be very damaging.
