Can spanking a 7 year old really embarass the child?

Even if it's just the one parent and child in the room?

i can understand if he was spanked in front of other people but if it's just the one parent and the child.

i don't get how.  i'm confused.

it's not like he's getting spanked in front of his friends, KWIM?

Meh. I know I wasn't embarrassed but growing up all my friends were spanked. No need to be embarrassed or ashamed.

It can still make him embarrassed and feel bad about himself regardless who is around.  I hate being yelled at and get really embarrassed.

Maybe more upset than embarrassed!

You don't need anyone to be around for something to embarrass you. Just the thought of someone seeing or finding out could be embarrassing enough. I know I've been embarrassed plenty with no one around about many things. You (not YOU you, but you in general) can't exactly say his being embarrassed is wrong, because we're talking about his feelings and he's entitled to feel how he does.

 I think boys, in particular, by this age do not want anyone to see their ptrivate areas anymore. This is when they develop some modesty.

Spanking, in general, is degrading as well.

are you speaking in general?

because i've seen my sons privates alot when he was a baby while changing his diapers.

i would think, being his mom, that he wouldn't feel uncomfortable with being naked around me. 

it's not like i'm going pick on the size of his penis or anything.

i understand what you mean by modesty, but i just believe when it comes to parents, they shouldn't feel shy or anything like that.

does that make sense?

i'm just trying to make sense of this whole thing.

oh i understand, he certainly can feel embarrassed and share his feelings with me.

but still.......i'm his mom........i gave birth to him, changed his diapers, gave him baths.  what's there to feel embarrassed about?

about a month ago i was in the livingroom with him, his step father was there.

he was misbehaving and i said come over here and pull your pants down so i can spank you and so he started to and then i said, don't do that.

i honestly didn't think that he would do that without making issue of it first and at that point i was more embarrassed about it then he was, i think.

i could feel my face turn red.
