Do you believe in spanking your child/ren ?

If your child was disrespectful, unruly and plain defiant is spanking an option for you? Time out doesnt always work......

  • I don't like to spank my kids, but I will if I have to and nothing else works.

  • no. I've done it once and will NEVER do it again. It was done out of anger. I was stressed and having a bad day. I have learned from that experience to breathe and leave the room if ds tests me. It's not my parenting style. we do room time outs and that works for our family

  • Nope we don't spank mainly because it is looked at as child abuse these days and I don't need dcfs at my door for disciplining my children so we find alternate ways of doing it

  • If my children do something bad enough then yes they'll get a spanking. I got my butt whooped when I was little and it made me not want to do it anymore. My aunt tried the whole time out and grounding thing and she now has a disrespectful, pot smoking, juvenile delinquent 16 year old, but when he's at my grandparents house he's good as gold bc my grandma spanked us and he knows she means business. My oldest daughter just turned 5 and I don't beat her or anything lol but she'll get spatted on the butt hard enough for me to get my point across and she's the type that I could barely spat her hand and it breaks her heart so I've only had to resort to a spanking a handful of times.

  • Yup, I'll spank my son. I was spanked as a child and I turned out fine and I spank my son and he's now very respectful and well behaved.
