  • Spanking? No. Taking them outside and tiring them out? Yes.

  • NO way. I only spank on last resort.

  • I don't believe in ever striking a child. I don't judge those that do, it's just not right for me.

  • When they get on my nerves?  No.  When they misbehave?  Yes.  I don't spank my children for irritating me.  I spank them for doing things they already know they aren't suppose to.

  • wha? like you interrupted my tv show so I'm gonna smack your face? do people do that? I spank occasionally but never spur of moment out of anger and never without trying other appropriate disciplines 1st

  • I try to find other means first like 1,2,3 magic. But when she has done something like write on the tv with pen then yes she has had a spanking. But normally its trying to redirect her to something more productive

  • Def not for getting on my nerves. I have smacked my child before but only as a last resort but very rarely.

  • I do give my kids a spanking on occasion, but it all depends on what they did, as to whether they get one or not.

  • Not for getting on my nerves, but she'll get a spanking if she misbehaves, and even then that's a three strikes you're out kinda deal.

  • Not just because they are on my nerves. There has to be a legitimate reason for it.
