  • My opinion is Spanking is a GOOD thing. However spanking is not done with your hand, never a item (belt, paddle, spoon) and is never done out of anger.

    However, I don't see what was wrong with what your son was doing that it deserved any punishment or discipline at all...

  • WHAT? You beat him with a wooden spoon b/c he tried on your bra?

    How old is your son? I would have been shocked if I had walked into my room and saw my teen trying on my undies....but beat them with a wooden spoon?????

  • Uh...ya you were wrong. I think you should have talked to him about why he was wearing them and see what he says...he could have just been curious. And spanking should not be done with a wooden spoon or by throwing him on the bed---thats abuse.

  • WTH! You have some anger issues.
    If anything at all I would have busted out laughing and told him to put them away and leave my things alone. Also I would have had a long talk with him about it.

  • nothing wrong with spanking, but to tell him why it was wrong, and spank him, but have a lock on your bedroom door, to many things in an adult's room, that they don't need to get in to or see

  • You're wrong in this case. Beating is always wrong. Spanking can be a helpful disciplinary tool if used correctly. In this senario, I would have had a talk with him.

  • beating and committing child abuse is not spanking. what you did so horrifies me i wishi knew where you lived and who you were. i would screen shot andreport you. you dont deserve to have a child right now in your care till you get yourself some help and under some care.

  • It was Pure shock when I seen my 17 year old son wearing my undies, I just fliped, I did not know what to do, to say, to put him off wearing my undies, It was out of pure shock and lack of understanding, I still don't understand why I hit my son, I did not think, I just reacted without thinking, what should I have said, or what do I say to him now, how long do I leave him to cool down, why was he wearing my ...................... Aaaa, I have to many questions, my head is busting
