There is a difference between a spank and abuse. I believe that without spanking....our world has become one out of control. There is nothing in place now that can assist parents. Without spanking there is no preconcieved thought of "If I do this...than I may get into trouble" no consequence for the child to think about first. Now they call it oppositional defiance as there is no consequence or consistency. Oh by the way I got the strap in school. Made me think before I would act out again. So I say suck it up buttercup if you are old enough to do the unacceptable behavior then you are old enough for the consequence. Mind you not all children require spanking sometimes a time out chair is just as effective.
