my son is sometimes out of control.. im really not a fan of spanking. but im starting to consider it. bc the timeouts dont really work. and im wondering.. what is it abt spanking that works.. is it the pain factor.. is it the fact the child will then fear the parent. if u believe in spanking why do u think it works...

People will tell you to never hit out of anger because it does not help, and it teaches your children that hitting is ok. I have spanked; I try not to do it now, but there are times when I get frustrated and end up spanking. When a parent does spank, it is because they are at their wits end, and let their children's behavior get the best of them, and they spank. The only reason they do it is because they are angry and frustrated. Parents will tell you something different, but the truth is, spanking is not done with a calm, rash head. If you feel there is no other way to get to your child, then you discipline as you see necessary. That is a personal decision, but I think there are other methods. We have reward systems, and money is usually not exchanged in the rewards.
