Do you spank your kid(s)?

My sister posted on Facebook about how the scariest words in her house are, "Don't make me get the spoon!"

Do you spank your kid(s)? If so, do you have rules/limits on when you spank or how? If not, how do you discipline instead?

I've never felt I had a need to spank. Time out and a quick talk about what was wrong is all the more DD has needed to correct her behavior.

We don't spank. Time-outs still work for my boys. We also take things away and talking to my oldest after time-outs work.

Yes. I only spank with an open hand. No objects or closed fist.

I've "popped" rarely when she did something horrible, like saying I hate you over and over or running in a busy parking lot. Usually I just have to start counting to three and that's a far as it goes.

Yes i spank! Its funny because im all like dont make me get that spatula lol! I use spanking as a last resort. I do time out first, if that does not work i explain why i am spanking him and he gets a spanking. That usually straightens him out.

No. It's tempting sometimes, but I don't ever want to spank.

I use to be a spanker.Just the butt,hands,or sometimes mouth.Depends on what happened.I def stopped because i felt horrible after doing it.It didnt do anything.I now take their favorite things away for the rest of the day and to earn it back,try again for tomorrow.BUT if it something very VERY bad,your lil ass is grass buddy lol
