  • Only when he does something really horrible like attacking other children or is mean to pets. Haven't had to spank in a LONG time.

  • I wouldn't say spank, but yes we do diecipline with a lillte love pat now and then on the hand.. We find time outs and taking away stiff like toys and tv works best though.

  • – collapse
    I think people who spank their kids are to lazy to do a time out. "Why waste time on a time out when I can just slap the shit out of em?"

  • When necessary, we did. It was never our first resort and we never spanked because we were 'too lazy' to do a time out.

  • I did but haven't in a very very very long time. I found other ways to deal with them and spanking (swatting on the bottom with an open hand) was no longer necessary. I think if I'd figured that out earlier I probably would have never spanked them.
