If you value personal experience over science, then do the world a favor and complete a study on the effects of exhaust fumes on the human body. The sooner you suck on the end of an exhaust pipe and fcuking die, the sooner our nation's IQ gets a bump.

It seems as if a few anti spanking individuals on here have more built up aggression and frustration than I. I have never once talked down to or bullied anyone on here. I guess you have just proven my point that a spanking is not such a bad thing after all.

Lol, that's the worst justification for anything I've ever seen. "They strongly express their opinions, they should have been beaten as children!"

People that hit their kids r complete idiots. The only reason the gov has not out lawed "spanking" children is because they know that if they took it away, idiotic dumb ass parents would b lost when it comes to raising their kids. So the gov keeps the law for the stupid parent's sake. Why r children the only ones allowed to be hit????? Smack an adult on the butt without their consent and it's sexual harassment. Hit an adult and it's called assault. Hit an animal and it's animal abuse or cruelty. But hit a kid and smack them on their butt and it's "discipline". More like punishment. Violence is only acceptable towards children because conditioned idiots can't think. Bad parenting.

Oh please! That's why kids get away with murder. And no its not abuse to whoop a kid. I didn't say beat them. Ppl that stop whooping their children and taking God out of everything is why u see the cops inside the schools everyday and the reason why the jails are full of 14, 15, year olds.
Kids murder because of no butt battering?? I wow trick. How stupid. U see cops in schools because pple "stopped" "whooping" their children????? Mayb those kids n jails have mental illnesses and don't need beating - I mean "spanking". N btw, when did god say to "whoop" ur kids anyway??? That word isn't in the bible now is it??? Stop mixing stupid ass American culture with religion. Idiots.

Why do people think u need to slap a kids hand to "get their attention"??? If u want someones attention, why don't u just tap their shoulder or physically turn them around to you??? Only IDIOTS need hitting and violence to communicate.

Shut up about "judgement day". Any sane person would get irritated if dumb bitches kept on using the bible to JUSTIFY beating and hitting kids. Stupid so called Christians that talk about a loving god that wants u to assault and hurt children and make them cry. Yeah- that's very Christian like. I hope u stop being a pussy before judgement day.

I would like to say that first off I work 2 jobs and try very hard to get my kids the things they need and if they "want" something, then I try to work harder to accomplish this. I'm gonna say I have spanked my children in certain circumstances but it is not something I've done often. I no longer spank any of them because they are old enough now to be talked to and to understand their actions are wrong. The thing I have never done is verbally abuse them or talk down to them. I by no means think spanking is wrong. Heck I'm just trying to be a good parent. Does anyone know 100 percent the right way to be a parent? I know this I love my kids with everything in me and I know without a shadow of a doubt they love me. Now as a result of my particular parenting. I have 4 very smart, respectable, humble, loving children that laugh and enjoy life. I'm right now in the process of raising 3 teenage boys!! This is a big roller coaster ride! I have not had to spank them thank goodness because my oldest is 6 2" and weighs 230 lbs to my 5 6" and 130 lbs. I would feel pretty silly if I had to. He is a fine young man and I find having a long talk works wonders. The same goes for my other 2 teenagers. My daughter on the other hand is 11, the only girl and the youngest to boot and she is a handful, still? She is a great kid. As I've said I use a lot of different methods, spanking included. Is this the best way? I don't know, I just try to be the best parent I can be. I do know that neither one of my children have been into any trouble in school or out of school. Most people who are around them comment on how well behaved and respectful they are. I also know that my kids would come to me in any situation if they needed help. I also know that while growing up, my father never spanked me not one time, but my mom sure did. I think I've turned out to be a pretty good addition to society. Now to some of the comments about people being educated or non educated? I will say that my mom did not have any schooling outside of high school and yes she spanked me. I on the other hand have a college degree. Several if my friends have as well and have used spanking at some point in their children's lives. The thing I see the most harmful is the verbal abuse. I have a niece that it seemed like her mother hated her, was always calling her ugly and fat, she has a horrible drug filled life. I have another niece who went to live with her father when she was 10. He allowed her to do anything she wanted, never spanked her. She had sex at 11, and is a meth addict and has had her own daughter taken away. The problem is there are no morals anymore and children are not being taught right from wrong, no respect and that everything should be handed to them without hard work to achieve it. This what are next generation is becoming. I worry for my kids futures every day. So good luck to all the parents out there. I wish you every success in raising your children because your child could be our next president or the next terrorist we see on the news. The thing is that one day they will all be adults, and they will either take what they have learned from child hood and use it for good or bad, but at some point they will be held accountable for their own actions.

A recent case in California/Kookaburraland:
A woman spanked her 12 year old daughter with a wooden spoon, leaving bruises on her behind. Cali CPS took the girl, claiming abuse. Judge said, "Give her back, NO ABUSE!" Cali CPS appealed. Cali CPS LOST! Girl back with Mother, and behavior is "much improved", according to Mother. Draw your own conclusions, folks.....
Oh, I might add- Gov. Moonbeam of California recently VETOED a Gun Control bill. Has the world gone MAD?? California? Guns? Owning a gun in California is actually NOT a bad thing? Spanking your kid in California is actually not a bad thing, either? "Holy Moses and the Angels, cast your pitying glances down!!"

Here's the real deal....excluding Religion, anger, stupidity, meanness, and, "Kentucky Windage":

If your child knows that you love them, and are spanking them out of a SINCERE DESIRE to correct their behavior, then it'll work.

If your child knows that the only reason you're spanking them is for, "cockblocking", then it WON'T WORK!

Here's in the VAIN hope that the arguments over spanking have been clarified to ya'll's satisfaction; but I know people better than that.

Parents who spank lack skills. Plain and simple.

You spank kids for what they did instead of teaching them whats right. Its just easier for you because you are weak.

My parents whipped my butt when I deserved it and trust me I was not an angel! Didn't make them any less of a parent or make them weak! You and people with the same opinion as you is what's wrong with this world today! Kids nowadays a lazy, disrespectful, and need a good Ol fashioned whippin'! My parents raised me well and are still great parents to this day! I have no ill feelings of them for "correcting" me when I was wrong! Time outs puh lease!
