We don't use spanking or hitting of any form. We use time out and taking away toys or play time for a few minutes ( one minute per year of age). and it works great.
well, that's what you get
My oldest required no spanking, my middle child requires it he doesn't give two shits if you take his stuff away or he sits into time, the baby seems like he is going to be a mix of both my oldest and youngest I will discipline him as it comes up and what works for him
I've never seen a child start hitting as a result of getting an appropriately administered spanking.
The real problem is not with spanking in general, but with parents who hit their kids (on the rear or anywhere else) when the parents are frustrated, angry, annoyed, etc.
