Another question got me thinking about this. What reason do you have for spanking your child? What did they do to deserve it? IMHO, a swat on the butt because they HURT someone, I mean physically hurt, might be justified I suppose if they've been taught that is not appropriate behavior. A swat on the butt because they ran out into a busy parking lot, yeah that's justifiable.
Maybe I'm just extemely lucky, but I've never had to spank any of my kids. Not that I would, but they've never misbehaved to the point that I'd even consider it. They know right from wrong and that's that. When I read that someone actually spanks their kid a few times a WEEK, I wonder what the reason was.

My son got spanked yesterday, twice.... He spent the day with the principal after talking back to his teacher, not doing his work and telling her he didn't care and didn't have to do anything she said... that was for the first one. Second, he talked back to me, even after a long conversation about it, and then he proceeded to crawl around on the floor playing with toys when he should have been doing something else. He didn't listen to anything that was said and his behavior has gotten worse, nothing else was working. From now on if he defies my authority or any other adult, he will be spanked.
