Okay, so a little while ago there was a post about women who were spanked and if they spank, I failed to pay attention so here is round 2..... I am curious....

How many people who were NOT spanked, spank their children?

Also, If you were NOT spanked but do spank your children, is there a particular reason why you chose to parent differently than your parents....

By spank, I mean a firm pat on the butt... NOT beating your child senseless because you cannot control your temper.....

I am not judging anyone for anything they do, I have my own disciplinary beliefs and would ask that anyone posting a reply be courteous of other people's parenting techniques as well. If you cannot be courteous, you can always start a post yourself to bash everyone who is... Thank You!

Ok so people who DO NOT spank, do you (or have you ever) smacked your child's hand?

I was spanked and I do swat my kids. I was spanked using a belt or a spatula, though. I only use my hand with my children.

I was severely abused as a child, I spank when needed. Never when angry, always with a hand over the clothes.

I was spanked and I spank on extreme occurences, usually when someone does something very dangerous or is being downright beligerent. I can count on one hand how many times dd has been spanked.

I also was spanked with "Mr. Hickory". It was sick, my dad and stepmom would make me go out and pick my stick to be swatted with. True story. I will never ever do that. My mom never really spanked but when I was teenager and cussed at her I got slapped. I'm glad she did, I look back and think why on earth would I think it was okay to talk to my mother like that?!!?

I was spanked ONCE, by my brother. Don't even remember why, just that I hid in my closet and was crying so hard I had an asthma attack - not because it hurt, but because it was so degrading.

My mom spanked my little brother...went way overboard. I'll never forget hearing him scream and cry from way down the block. He was a difficult kid but he didn't deserve that. Mom never laid hand on the rest of us, just him and only a few times.

I don't spank and never will. We parent with logical consequences.
