Of course not.

Nobody is allowed to hit in our house. It's one of the rules, and children learn what they live.

we will spank when they're old enough to "know better" and it wont be hard spanking, more of a tap on the butt, if you start small it scare them just as much as something that would physically hurt them... theres no reason to spank hard.  Right now we do timeouts and they work just fine :)

I do both. Most of the time I can just talk to them, but my 7 year old gets a swat once in awhile when talking does nothing for him. But after we talk about why and what he can do to make better choices. The rest of mine are too old but got the same when they were younger. This baby will be the same when he's older.

See my daughter isnt old enough for spankings she just gets told no. But when i was younger i used to get spanked if not beat with a belt. But now days the laws are different. Why i brought thos post up is because me and so are prego again :). And we were talking on how we would disipline our children. And he was brought up by just being talked to not spanked.

No, I don't believe in spanking. 

We use positive reinforcement, distractions, explaining and timeout. Disciplin is about consistancy more then anything else.

Step 1 warning with a reminder as to why what she is doing is wrong.
Step 2 time out and make her tell me what she did wrong
Step 3 (and last resort) a pop on the butt only one with bare open hand. And another discussion as to why she was wrong.

Most of the time we don't get to the third step.
