Spare the rod and spoil the child isn't technically in the Bible it's a poem by Samuel Bittner. There are a few scattered references to using corporal punishment in proverbs, but I believe you have to put this in cultural context of the time. Jesus made no mention of hitting so I don't think God thinks we should all spank our kids. If you do fine, but for me I never would.

My children haven't had to have "discipline" (spankings) for years now but if they did need it, I would administer it! Many parents who don't have proper training in HOW to train their children the right way and spank their kids do it in anger which IS WRONG! I however do NOT and WILL NOT do that! My children have the freedom to choose: obey or disobey. Obey brings blessings, disobey brings conflict. If they disobey, they get discipline. I do not administer discipline with my hands. Hands are for loving. I use a "discipline stick" which is a hot glue gun stick (not while hot of course!) It does not leave any marks yet has a
