If you're a parent that spanks, what age do you stop?

ETA******* I also am curious as to what kind of spankin' we're talkin' about here? I hear *open hand* but is that on the butt? Legs? Head? Is there ever a belt involved?

My mom used the belt and I HATED it!! My brother and I would hide it (like under a rug...dumb!!) and then when I got to be about 6 or 7, I would run outta the house and not come back for hours.

When you finally look at your child for being a child and know this is what children do. And doesn't deserve physical violence as a punishment.

i would say around 12-13 though there might be times it would stil be warranted . but by that age other punishments are much more effective in my opinion like taking everything in thier room away plus the door till they earn back anything that is not essentially needed. hurts them where it counts.

When you find it not affective. Every child is different. I know my brother was a turd and I got swatted longer then he did, cuz he just turn around and laugh at mom..haha I was the one that would put both hands over my bum and plead her not to..lol she didn't do it very often, thankfully...only when I was really naughty! What worked on my brother because he was/still is a huge gamer...when he was off to school an thought all had passed and he was in the clear he would come home to see ALL not one or two but ALL his game systems and games removed and put in my room! :) Yay for me! He would get sooo mad because big sister got to play with his stuff and he couldn't...we'll if he didn't like it then he needed to act right, you don't act right you don't get right things happeneing to you! Mom always said...believe me it worked and quick...I only had the game systems probably twice! ;) Good luck!
