How do y'all fell about spanking...

My DH and MIL think that the only way to get through to a child is to spank them... constantly. I don't agree with that. I would rather try time out and talking to the child before I resort to spanking. It is impossible to change their minds. From what I know about my MIL, she was very mean to my DH and his BIL. Her way to control them and their behave was to spank them. I didn't grow up like that. I am very frustrated and don't know what else to do.

I am pro spanking, but not constantly. I have spanked my dd a handful of times, all of which involved her doing something dangerous or not listening or responding to other punishments

Pretty much this. I can also say that it doesn't work for every child. My oldest doesn't respond to spanking, my youngest does. But I reserve it for extreme punishment.

I would never resolve a problem by hitting anybody as an adult, so I refuse to do it with my own child.

I agree with you, im against it. They're your kids so you dicipline  them how you see fit, it's not up to them...

I am 100% no spanking.

I will not ever hit my children.

I have plenty of other options for discipline.

I am completly against spanking and any kind of physical discipline.  I believe that both children, and animals alike deserve respect and have the mental capacity to understand right from wrong without spanking.  My fiance is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum and believes that if our dog or our child does something wrong, that the only way to curb it is by spanking them in the butt.  I've had many discussions with him about it.  All I have managed to achieve is a sore throat.  In the end, I just know that I myself will never do it.

I will spank them only if they have done something dangerous or if they aren't listening and I have tried everything else I know to try to get their attention or to try to get them to do something.

We do time out.. Take away a toy for a period of time.. And sometimes he gets a pat on the butt.. Not often though and not hard enough to leave a mark.
