I was spanked with a belt every now and then but never hard. I would never do it myself because it is illegal and i would be afraid of doing it too hard.
No I don't. But then I don't believe in spanking. Did spank only once or twice when Molly was younger but it didn't really change anything as much as talking to her or grounding her,taking away toys,stuff like that. She's 14 & a pretty good kid now.
No. Isn't it against the law? Leather belts freaking hurt! I find talking goes a lot further than belts/spankings.
No, thats not spanking, thats a beating. Thats abuse. I have no issue with a well deserved swat on the bottom with the hand of a caring parent, but using an object that will leave marks and cause unecessary amounts of pain, that is uncalled for, no child deserves that.
