I spank on the bottom or a light pop on the mouth are just that. Anything beyond that and more than once seems a bit extreme! For all you momma's out there who are going to say seriously a pop in the mouth YES I am serious ! It seems to stop that sassy talk real quick and I have never made her bleed or cry by doing it ! Not that I even need to justify myself to a bunch of peeps on the internet !

 Beating the ever living crap within an inch of their life and discipline are different that's what. If you can't differentiate I don't know what to think about you.

 Use it

 I've always thought of "whooping" as a spanking, and since spanking isnt beating, I guess thats what the difference would be IMO anyway.


But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Aren't they by definition the same thing?

whooping is legel, beating is not. Beating is out of control, leaves marks.

Eh..  I don't use either but I do 'spank' as a last resort which is rare.  I hear people say WHOOPING all the time here in NC!  Lmao infact I went to pick Naeem up from daycare this afternoon and this lady told her son if he didn't get in the car he was gonna get a whoopin' when he got home!  Lol that term kinda makes me giggle to be honest.
