  • Never spanked any of my three, no need to there are better more effective ways of discipline.

  • No spanking here. My parents didn't spank either.

  • I've never had to spank. There are much more effective ways to parent. Violence isn't the answer.

  • my son is 3 and we started when he was 2 because time outs are not enough for him. So depending on the situation he will more likely get a time out. but if it is more serious then he will get a spanking.

  • Well if time out doesn't work he gets a spanking. He started getting them when he was about 1.
