if you spank with your hand, what is the difference in using your palm/open-hand and using the back of the hand?
i would think that a palm would hurt more..wouldn't it?? (and as someone stated, spanking is not supposed to be used to pain a child)

I spank my children, and I see no reason for it to cause pain. But there is a big difference between spanking and backhanding... The back of the hand is bonier, and hard, the palm is not... My children are spanked, not beat, open hand, on the butt... The point isn't to cause pain, it's not to control, the point is to make a point, to have a child understand their actions are wrong - I don't see what that has to hurt anything beyond their pride...
