Honestly I tell them to mind their own business. What works for me may or may not work for them and vice versa.

just say everyone has their own parenting technics and that yours does not include spanking
if the say you are screwing up your kid do what i do and tell them it is your kid to screw up
i dont think that you need to tell them about your experiences (unless you want to)
it is none of there business

I never spanked my kids and I'm told all the time that I have very well behaved kids because we raised them properly.

It's all about redirection and the occasional consequences.

So stick to you what you want to do and don't worry about what those other parents are saying.

I speak from spank-free experience!

Honestly people need to mind there own buisness. I had an old lady almost chase me in a parking lot because I had to walk or drag my  daughter out of a store one time. I told my dd if she touched things w/o asking we would leave. She touched and did not want to leave. The lady was like no, no hurt. I do not even know how i was hurting her. Plus it is not like the lady knew the whole picture.

I spanked and it wasn't working so I had to do other things. I think spanking works for so long with some children. I was the opposite-I learned from spankings. Now I warn her that if she does not stop she will get a spank.

people are so stupid. I spank my son but I hardly ever have too. But like some one else said what works for me may not work for some one else. I would never tell some one how to disipline their kid. Thats just stupid. Its your child not theirs and there is nothing wrong with not spanking your child. ITs what you want and that should be the final word on that subject/

I start using big words to explain to them some of the basic foundations of developmental psychology and the process of punishment: negative punishment, positive punishment, negative reinforcement, positive reinforcement.

If I don't lose them there, I start getting into philosophical discussion on the link between a violent manner of discipline and behavioral disorders.

eventually they realize I'm smarter and they don't stand a chance in convincing me that I should use violence against my child.
