I believe in spanking but not beating my children a quick sweat on the bottom is all I do---I do this after I have tried all other techniques and they still won't listen. I would like to know who else feels the same way as I do.
I know this is a hot topic so please be kind with your answers

I'm gonna turn this around to get my answer out there. Do we as adults spank someone that does something wrong? NO we don't because A. you may just be barking up the wrong tree and get Your ass whipped or B. that would be considered assault and you would be arrested! So why assault a child that can't defend them self? People say, it's just a swat or pat on they're bottom,you can down grade it anyway you want it's still physically laying your hand on another person and it's WRONG! I don't do it to my kids and they both are good kids, there are other ways to discipline without using abuse. Was it done to me? Sure was and i never forgot the times it happened. That's really good memories to leave with your adult kids, I swore I'd never do it to my kids. If it's an ok thing to do why do social services and police get called to peoples homes everyday for it?
