I don't want this to be a huge argument but i know these days allot of parents do NOT spank/swat there  children. I was wondering about the % was...

This questions came about when my parents took my nephew to Dave and busters. He was three and throwing a fit so my mom grabbed his arm got down to his level and told him if he didnt stop she was going to take him to the bathroom and spank him. This couple about 30 saw her do this and went and told some security guards.. they came and asked my nephew without saying anything to my parents if "he was alright and if they were hurting him" my nephew ..done with his fit by now said NO THOSE ARE MY PA PA AND GRANDMA and they dont hurt me....

 

I understand not spanking a child to the extreme where it is child abuse...obviously..BUT i dont see the problem with a little spank to let them know you are serious and they better stop....

 BUT i also unstand the point on not wanting to do anything that might cause the child physical harm....

 

 I am NOT doing this to start anything i was just wondering sorry if i put anyone on the spot.. :(

Well good luck on no fighting. These posts always start a fight. Everyone's opinion is the RIGHT one and people don't seem to think that the other party can have valid points.

Nope I will never intentionally inflict pain upon my children to get them to do what I want.

I am a conservative, republican, formula feeding, non spanking, fully vaccinating, democrat and liberal bashing, SAHM, that has an unbreakable bond with her son and does not give a ewwwwww what you think of it!

I don't spank but it's not as black and white as your poll. It's a decsion DH and i made and i'm sticking by it so far. I was spanked he wasn't so he doesn't agree with it. I understand some kids don't repsond to time out and some kids don't respond from spanking so i hope i'm doing what right for my Daughter to learn and that you are too.

My daughter is only 13 months so I do not spank. I do not want to spank her and I do not plan on it.
