I spanked my kid this morning.

I am not a spanker.  I have always had the opinion of it is fine for some people, but not for me.

This morning I asked my ds7 to hold his toothbrush up while putting the paste on because out counter is always covered in sticky paste and he doesnt wipe it up.

He looked at me in the miror while he set the brush down on the counter and put the paste on.

I went to pick up the toothbrush and he wordlessly screamed while he grabbed both my hands and dug his nails in them so hard he broke skin.

I yelled at him to stop and tried to hold his arms.  He dropped to the floor on his back like a turtle and began scratching and kicking me. 

I picked him up, put him over my knee and spanked him 4 times on his bottom with an open hand.

I feel terrible and evil.  Was I over the line?

I love him and no matter what I always will but to be honest lately he has been a damn brat.  I don't want to come across as mean but I feel like I need to come down heavy to nip it in the bud.

That's out of line behavior. I wonder why he did that, is it normal for him? I still don't agree with spanking. Like you, I feel if parents choose to do that it's their right, but even with something like that I'd use time out. I don't think you were over the line and if it worked then don't feel too bad about it.

Not over the line at all. Sounds like he very well deserved it!
