At what age is it too old to be spanking your kids?

Posted by   + Show Post

I remember when I was 5 years old, my step dad would spank his 16 or 17 year old son.

Would you spank your older children if you thought it was working?

NO  ABSOLUTELY NOT..  at that age there are too many things you can take away from them that will get their attention far more than hitting them...

I don't spank to often but 5 years old is about it, I don't think spanking does anything for the children.

7-8. By then they need different forms of punishment.

spanking is not against the law

This is so demented, that's called abuse, no age is right for hitting a person.  Go get some therapy, better yet call DYFS, and tell them what you did.

Spanking is never ok in this family. Hitting someone smaller and weaker than you shows no self restraint or respect for the other person.

You're disturbed. Unless the parent is abusive or having sexual action/thoughts how does it seem sexual. It's their child. I'm not saying they should spank a 16 year old child because that's too old, but it's not sexual. There's something wrong with a person who thinks that.

Quoting mommylovingtime:

That is sooo not okay. Spanking at an older age just seems sexual.

Quoting bigmama423:

No way, that's too old, I'll be fist fighting with them at that age. ;) I don't even really spank my kids much now, they're 7,7,4 and 1.
