  • when they are bigger then you lol which in my case will be by the time the kid is 6 lol im short. I dont believe in spanking simply becuz what are you teaching them? its ok to hit when mad yeah so we dont spank but i believe it probaly works for some children id say by the time they are 7 or 8 they are big enough to know with out being spanked and other means of disapline are probably going to work better.

  • I really haven't had to discipline mine past 6 yrs. If they are trained properly when they are young, they won't need discipline for long.

  • I don't spank but my mom did. I remember my last beating when I was 15 years old and swore at her. It was pretty mean and I didn't learn anything except fear of my mom by her spanking me.

  • I still spank my 8 & 10yr olds if they need it which is rare, usually I just start counting (I get to 3 & their in trouble) and they will stop.
