  • Ive only spanked them on the rear but only as a last resort as a form of discipline. so i would say rear only if you want to use that form of discipline at all.

  • how about not hitting them at all?

  • In our home, a spanking consisted of a couple, 3 swats on the behind. Always figured their behinds were there for 2 reasons....1) so they could sit down and 2) it affords a place to give them a needed swat or two without hurting them.

  • we soank on the butt only, and never with a weapon ( belt, switch etc.) but I have popped mine in the mouth if they are biting or continualy saying something disrespectful, but no where else

  • I no longer need to discipline my children but when I did -they would get one for every 2 yrs of age. If the offense was very serious they rcvd 1 for every yr of age. "non-serious" offenses were bad attitudes, disobedience or disrespect. Very serious offenses were life threatening bad choices, stealing or lying.

  • Also, they were disciplined with a glue stick on the fullest part of their bottoms.

  • Spank on the butt or swat hands depending on the age of the child & the action that requires discipline.

  • The rear end is the perfect spot to spank. It's padded naturally.
