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?

And I'll bet you're doing great!  Did you have a lot of conversations about things?  Are you a good problem solver?

My Mama will still spank us with a belt if we do something bad. My brother was about 24 at the time and no one could find him when he had made plans with his now wife, well she was at our house and my mama checked the accident reports and ended up spanking him with her belt when he showed up at my house. It was hilarious, but if we're out of line she'll definitely whoop our butts.

I think if you don't have them trained by then that it likely won't work.  I do remember smacking my kid's rear a few times after they were up there in age, but it was usually more of a playful reminder that they weren't too big to give a swat to.

I hope you are kidding.  That can't be tolerated.  I'd have him put in juvvy or if he was out of school, I'd kick him out.  There is no way a child should raise a hand to you.  I gave my kids a smack on the rear, but they were not to raise a hand to me.  My husband and I trained them when they were small.  We didn't really have to smack them much when they were older and it was more playful to remind them of what was what.  However, a teenager who beats up the mom needs to have drastic measures taken.  Might be calling the cops and filing a charge or having the police talk to him to tell him that he could go to jail.  I'd be looking into my options if I were you.  No way a child or anyone living in my house is going to hit me.  Did your husband slap you around?  Kids learn from their parents so if your husband smacked you, then your child may be abusive too.  Sometimes they ae defensive of Mom rather than taking after dad.  I hope you were joking about this but do not allow this to actually happen.

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


 It sure does

I think that once you reach an age when things start to creak and groan when you get up, or when the brat can outrun you, you need to stop spanking and start training to be accurate with thrown things. Works for me. ; )

Nope I don't spank anymore once they are about 3 1/2.

Probably around the late 70's or 80's.
