I am for it to an extent. Spanking or abuse? I try my hardest not to spank my children but they sometimes don't get it. I am raising tomorrows adults and would hate to have to see my children behind bars or dead. I have a GF that is against spanking, her 3 year old is running the house already. I say show them who is boss and they would think about the consequence before hand. But, if you allow your child to run a muck how would they know how to respect elders and or others.

There are many other ways to instill respect and not have them run a muck, spanking only teaches fear, they don't learn the lesson through this. I have three grown adults that were never spanked, they were talked to , punish taking favorites away, and all it works with consistency. They grew up to be exemplary adults with a good education.

And whoever voted down Olders answer might not want to be so judgemental and open your ears. She is the mom who gave me the advice. It has worked. I'm not saying that spanking is wrong, but what about when you have good children and they don't do anything that warrants a spanking anymore? I wouldn't be so quick to put down someone elses answer about discipline, you might need their advice some day.
