Why are you against it? Why do you try to push your parenting beliefs down others throats? Just curious. Shouldn't you just mind your own business since it isn't your kid and the parent is choosing to discipline how THEY want to with THEIR kids?

They need something to bitch at. When we were little we had to pick switches off trees. No one was there to yell abuse then and we all survived.

Well, if they post it on cafemom they're obviously looking for attention or a second opinion....otherwise why not keep it to yourself if you don't want someone else's opinion?  It's a controversial topic...people who don't agree will have something to say about it.

They just think they're better parents and wannabe all smug about it.

I am against it because I believe people shouldn't hit other people regardless of age. I don't push it down other people's throats but if someone asks for alternatives, I try to give them some. Why should we care how other people raise their kids (to an extent anyway)????...Because we don't live in a bubble and how other people are raised can someday affect my family as well as others. I would prefer a more gentle and compassionate society. Not one that uses physical violence to solve problems.

Keep it to myself? I'm just curious as to why mom's who don't agree with spanking try to push their parenting style down others' throats.... I sure don't push my parenting style on ANYONE :)

I don't see the benefit in it. I believe it causes more harm.
But I also don't push my beliefs on others.
Why would you assume all antispanking parents would.

I'm anti spanking and I don't think I'm a better parent than everyone else.

Because it hurts my heart to know there are people out there who think it is acceptable to hit a child.

Good Point, I guess not ALL do, but the one's that I have personally come across do.
