I think spanking has its benefits and its disadvantages. your children should be able to learn from an early age that there will be consequences for bad behavior and if you choose spanking there must be an understanding between you and the child why they are being spanked. and as a parent you will know if your children are more opinionated and articulated that spanking wont solve any issues as they will be mentally mature to handle a talking too. In my house you will be told that if a certain behaviour does not stop after several warnings a discussion around why the behaviour is occurring will take place and a punishment will be carried out either in a form of spanking or a privilege taken away.

Nope. I was spanked as a kid and, although there were times I got into fights and hit my brother, I knew it was wrong. My kids get the occasional spanking and I don't think their hitting each other has anything to do with being spanked. They know hitting other people is wrong but they choose to vent their frustrations that way (towards their siblings, they have never hit other kids).
