Talking to your kid, explaining why things are wrong....time outs....there are so many other alternatives, hitting is never okay and it is the lazy way out.

I normally do a count down before I swat the butt... I talk, I reason, I explain... little foo won't take to reason... so I must spank.

It is...it actually takes work and some parenting skills, I just don't get it.

Spanking works for my kid. You can explain what they did wrong either before, during, or after you are done spanking.

I think people equate not spanking with no discipline. And that's soooo wrong. Not spanking is actually very difficult and takes lot of patience.

I think so too....we don't spank and there are plenty of other effective ways to teach and disclipline a child.  My son has gone through some periods of bad behavior, but working to curb them and time outs, loss of priveleges....is very effective.

That is does. Sometimes I have to give myself mommy time-outs because my dd can be very willful and it take a lot to not spank her sometimes. kwim

You raise your kid and I'll raise mine.

We use a combination of different punishments for certain behaviors which includes spanking.

Spanking worked for me. I will spank my child if the punishment fits. But at first I will explain to them why.

And I'll bet like myself you don't use spanking for every behavior that needs to be addressed right?
