an act of weakness; a result of poor intellectual and/or verbal reasoning skills?
I appreciate that it may be helpful with some kids some of the time in the hands (literally) of a reasonable and loving parent. But mostly I see parents spank their kids so randomly, out of frustration; only making their kids angry with them, resentful and isolated. Know what I mean?

I kwym, but my experience with my own children and with others who have used the discipline approach, it is actually quite the opposite. True discipline (which means to teach) applied properly is done with wisdom and shows the child that mom/dad really loves them as God loves us and therefor makes sure that when making choices, the wise ones are rewarded and the unwise ones become a learning tool for the child to use throughout their life. Everything that you are describing is the wrong way to go about it. You need to train yourself in order to effectively train your child. Most of my techniques are from HERE.
