  • If you can get ahold of them, beware that they are now big enough to hit you back.

    I don't think spanking is productive at this age. There are other things that you can do to get the point across.

  • Yes. Once a child has hit puberty they are a young adult, and should possess the skills necessary to reason with. Corporal punishment at that stage of life is not only damaging, but completely unnecessary.

  • I agree with jademom07. I never believed in spanking my kids. I don't think I would be able to spank my 13 year old even if I tried because he is bigger than I am.

  • I believe that spanking a child at any age is wrong. I mean really, if you don't do what your boss wants does he spank you? OK, please don't answer that LOL

  • I don't think you should hit anyone.

  • No spanking of teens, they'll just laugh at you and you will look stupid.

  • Spanking is not a reasonable punishment for a teen. Doing so is only going to humiliate the teen, making them more likely to act out & get into more, and possibly more serious, trouble.

  • The problem that lays in that is them fighting back. However, I think it's wrong to spank any child of any age.
