  • I don't understand why people come on here and ask this question time and time again. Simply put, if you want your child to respect and obey you, you have to discipline him. If nothing else works, a good old fashion spanking will. Trust me... It's this or you find yourself in the middle of the mall counting to your child or pleading with them, making yourself look like a total a**... Take control, do it now or forever let your child boss you... It's your decision!

  • I've heard it all, spanking teaches hitting, spanking teaches fear. NO, it teaches consequences. I spanked mine, (they're 22 and 24) If you don't have control and discipline then one day you may find yourself in a courtroom watching a total stranger (judge) discipline your child.

    Even the christian bible says "Spare the rod and spoil the child"

  • NO TO SPANKING!! No one in my family was ever spanked. We, as a culture, know way to much about child development to resort to spanking. Hasn't anyone ever heard of talking!!!

  • spare the rod....
    i was spanked... not regularly, but when necessary... only twice in my life!! but i knew that when she said she would, she did... whether it was spanking or loose of privelges.
    i intend on spanking when necessary..... if timeout doesn't work, if TALKING doesn't work... or if it is to punish a behavior that could've resulted in the death of my child (i.e. running into a parking lot, etc).... then YES, she can expect to be spanked.

  • I spank but only if the situation gets out of hand. If they are endangering themselves or anyone else then it is necessary but thats my opinion. You will have lots of moms that feel spanking is wrong but I am not one of those
