I Do NOT abuse my kids, but I do spank them. I will say I I have spanked them more than 2x in 6 months. I don't get how that is abuse? I don't get how spanking your kids is abuse. I don't use a belt, or wire, or a wet cord. I don't leave bruises either. So why aren't parents allowed to discipline an spank children with out having to worry about being called a bad parent and investigated for abuse.
Do you agree with this?
Factors that increase the likelihood that parents will use physical punishment include their culture, knowledge and attitudes towards spanking, religion, income, and education. Parents who are most likely to spank have:
• Experience with physical punishment as a child13
• Lesser knowledge of child development
• Lower socioeconomic leve
• Lower level of education
• Greater religiosity, particularly conservative Protestants
• Positive attitude toward use of physical punishment
