  • I did it tonight...my older son was on top and beating on my younger son - doesn't happen often but the baby was really wasn't happy...I pulled my older off, pulled his pants down and gave him a tap - I don't like doing it, but it resonates...if it is done rarely and to make a specific point - if there would be harm to someone else or himself, then yes...my younger still wears a diaper - a tap on the bottom doesn't phase him in the slightest.

  • I do it on SERIOUS offences. Very rare! He knows that I am serious and the point is taken.

  • Do you think 12 is to old to spank?

  • I totally agree with spanking for certain things, but I don't agree with bare bottom spanking. I don't think discipline should be humiliating and to spank on a bare bottom is embarrassing and humiliating to a child of any age. I don't do it ever.

  • Nope, I dont think so. Especially for a boy....i dont know why gender matters to me, girls can be just as bad.....hmmm...maybe its the whole becoming a "woman" thing around that age.

    A dad spanking a 12 year old girl is strange/ But a dad spanking a 12 year old boy is fine.

    Lots of my own personal beliefs here... ;)

  • I think to a certain point dicipline should be humiliating, you become embarrased of your behavior and the consequences that follow. And stop doing that particular offence to stop the consequence. Isnt that the point?

  • I am not saying that I have never spanked my kids when they were not old enough to understand what they did may hurt them (they were like 3 years old) but spanking at 12 is just teaching violence. You don't solve problems in this life with hitting. Hitting a child is like saying hey I am bigger, I can hurt you for anything that I deem is wrong. Both of my kids are really good and I wouldn't ever think of spanking them at that age (they are teens now). My parents didn't spank me and I turned out just fine.
