Bare butt spanking?

I completely disagree with bare butt spanking and so does my husband, but there are some people who don't see anything wrong with it. What do you think, should your spank you children's bare butt or what do you do instead for discipline?

  • I was, my children weren't. It's degrading. My father bare butt sspanked me until I was 17 years old and I have never gotten over the humilation.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it as long as it is done at home and with privacy. I do think that once your kid gets to a certain age you shouldn't be spanking them anymore say 12 or 13.

  • I have heard that bare butt spanking is considered sexual abuse... it is in this state anyway, I don't agree with that but thats what they say.

  • i have once, he wouldn't listen at all and he was already naked running around. he was kicking and kept telling everyone to shut up and i just don't take that. i don't think that you should though as a practice, but if that's the only thing that works to get the point across it's your parenting option i supposed.

  • I see nothing wrong with it either. I don't spank the butt I spank the leg. My dad says that if I spank his butt it can cause kidney failure, he's over dramatic. I think that bare butt spanking should stop at a reasonable age though. My dad spanked us that way and as I got older it got weird.

  • I believe in my city, parents can't spank a child's bare butt. I have nothing against spankers. I don't think spanking a child's bare butt is necessary.

  • I think it depends on the child.I think spanking should be a last resort punishment for when they do something really bad not just something small. So i guess if a normal spanking didnt work maybe that would be neccesary.
