And you just completely summed up the real problem with this entire topic. There is a difference between discipline and abuse. If I did something wrong I was pulled aside, told what was wrong and I had my ass swatted and I was sent to the corner to think about what I did for five minutes. I learned not to do it again. If I back talked or started cursing, I got tapped on the mouth and sent to the corner. The problem with this country is so many people mistake discipline and abuse. Spanking your child for what they did wrong to get a point across is discipline. Beating your child until they are bruised is abuse. Hillary Clinton claiming telling children "no" if they want ice cream is NOT abuse.
I thank my parents for the discipline they gave me. I'm a better man for it. I respect my father, love my mother. I hold doors open for others, I think of what I do before I do it so as not to hurt others whenever I can avoid it. I wait my turn in conversations and not butt in rudely. I treat my peers as I wish to be treated, I respect my elders. I refer to others as sir and ma'am respectfully. I get complimented all the time. A man my father works with had my dad's chest swelling with pride as he complimented him having a fine, respectful son. I have customers at my place of work telling me I'm very respectful giving me high customer service marks. I have respect from my managers because I respect them in turn.
I was disciplined growing up. You were abused. Two different beasts, while I am sorry you were done wrong. You like 85% of America have the two mixed up and overstep the fine line that differentiates the two. I'm willing to put a paycheck on it your therapist refers to what happens to you as ABUSE and would tell you that discipline is something entirely different than you're describing.
I'm sure talking to and then a corner or a timeout would have done the same as the spanking

Yes and no. We are all different. The US military disciplines soldiers with rigorous training. Does it work for everyone? Nope. That is why you have some whom are discharged as the discipline at hand has no real effect on them. To be honest with you I think it wouldn't have worked on me. I wish my parents had been more stern with me because I was an unbearable little brat when I was younger. Grounding me did no good because I made everyone around me miserable until they just gave in. Some of us need that stronger form of discipline.

I see nothing wrong with spanking as long as its reasonable! There's a difference between abuse and swating a child's behind! A lot of these children that are put on meds for ADHD wil become future drug addicts! Maybe if mom and dad spanked their children once in awhile,meds wouldn't be needed! I was spanked as a child and I'm fine today!
Hell yes, I was spanked and I learned from it. Dad would say, "do that again and you'll get more of the same". Very educational.

I was actually a really good kid and was rarely ever punished, but I'm the youngest and got away with stuff too. I pushed the limits and probably should have been punished more than I was.

Was I spanked? Not really. Not as a flat out punishment anyway. The rare time I got punished it was kneeling with my nose in the corner. When I was little I threw a few tantrums that would earn me a smack on the butt, if that counts. That smartens you up...
