  • Oh I do!! My daughter is only 10 days old, but my momma spanked me and I really believe thats why I turned out to be such a wonderful person! It taught me my boundaries and I definitely respected her more...I think thats why kids these days are outta control cause parents wont give them a good whoopen when they deserve them. I dont think it should ever leave a bruise or be with anything other than an open hand though.

  • I am all for it. It is not our go to form of punishment but at certain times my husband and I feel it is needed. I am sure that there is more to the story if she went to jail. We would never use an object to hit our little ones and marks are never left, I would guess something along those lines is what sent her to jail.

  • There is more to the story than she was sentenced to 5 years probabtion for spanking. For one, she didn't have custody of her child to begin with, the grandmother did. Second, she left marks that were still present hours later. That is not a spanking. That is beating a child.

  • I am not sure "the mac and viennies' comment is all about...I don't come on here often... actually rarely so I don't mean to bore you with my question. I am just curious....as of this day and age my friend 10 year old daughter threatened her mom that she would call the cops if she ever spanked her..lovely
