My husband spanks our kids and I do not. I hate it when he does it and no matter how many times I ask him, tell him or yell at him to stop he won't do it. I feel like the older they get the more often they get spanked or pinched. He doesn't beat them but I can't stand that he inflicts any kind of pain. Is there any legal action I can take to get my husband to stop spanking our kids?
Just to give a little more info, we did discuss this before having kids. He said he would spank them but the more he heard how against it I was the more he realized how bad it is to inflict pain on your own kid. So I thought we were on the same page. But he started spanking about 2 years ago and it just seems to be more and more often.Answer Question

I suggest for the sake of your kids to suggest some anger management class, explain to him there are better ways of disciplining a child than fear, if they stop their behavior out of fear, they are not learning why the behavior is wrong, but instead are been traumatized specially since you yell for him to stop, and it becomes a family drama scene not healthy for anyone involved.
