I can vaguely remember having my breeches pullled down in the middle of Walmart by my mom when I was five or six years old because I was having a hissy fit. You know something? I never did that again. Kids today are spoiled rotten because people say it's "wrong" to spank, discipline, punish, or even yell at your kids, and the result is a bunch of kids and adults who think they can do no wrong and that nothing can touch them. There is nothing wrong with spanking at all. Kids need discipline sometimes, and occasionally they need to be taught a lesson. A spanking now can prevent a loss of character later in life.
You are drawing conclusions where there are none. If your logic were true, all kids that got spanked would turn out well.

The conclusion that I'd draw is that parents that spank tend to care enough to do something about bad behavior, or are intelligent enough to know a behavior needs to be stopped. It's just not a very effective way because it shows violence is okay to your child.

I'd be more concerned about parents that have kids that constantly misbehave and they are too dumb to do anything about it.

It's pretty clear.
Ok did you just read the definition? A regular spankIng does not cause injury. That would be beating. When I spank my child it don't even leave a red mark! Nice try though. The other ways people talk about like time out... Oh yeah that works wonders! Lmao. Go sit down for a few minutes and get back up. Yeah that really scares them enough to not do what they are doing wrong. Listen I have a college degree in early and elementary education and have been through all the classes. Im in my 30's and I had plenty of spankings when I was little but I grew up with respect for my parents and never once thought ill of them or thought of them as violent. Once I received a spanking I never did the same bad thing again lol. Maybe if people went back to the old ways we wouldn't have so many disrespectful kids running around. Young kids hollering at parents and hitting them and running off in stores. Yep that few minutes in the corner sure will stop that. You bet. Like I said people need to discipline their children better and society wouldn't have as many problems and other people need to mind their own if they see a parent spanking their misbehaving child. Like a cop told a parent at a daycare I worked for, if it don't leave marks then it's fine. He said more parents should do it.

I would like to spank some adults at Walmart for standing in the middle of the aisle.

Teaching children is no longer a résumé enhancement. Kids are failing everywhere and an education degree is like indoctrination on steroids.

I got spanked too. And I was, at times, a violent kid. You can't tell a kid, do as I say and not as I do and expect that to work. It doesn't necessarily permanently scar a child if used periodically, but all you do is make your job more difficult in the future when your kid uses violence when things don't go their way.

The only kids I've ever seen spanked in public have been little white kids. Why?

Gee Killa you are the one sounding like a liberal. I guess you would define me as a liberal and I spanked my kids and will my grandkids if I need to

Spanking a kid isn't liberal. It's just the wrong thing to do. I'm sure there are a lot of good conservatives that make that mistake.

Are teenagers too old to spank? What age is too old to deserve a smack?

Parents that don't discipline their kids they allow them to get by with everything. Allows them that its okay to do wrong. Spanking a child teaches them that it's not ok to be disrespectful and disobey. Spanking is NOT violence!!! Teaches them from right to wrong. I've was spanked when I was a childand I learned Alot!!! I obey the law and I respect others. Kids now days are criminals cause the parents don't care. Maybe some of you should got a spanking from your Momma. Obviously some of you has Alot of growing up to do!

I'm not against spanking as long as it's not done in anger. If you are mad let them know its coming latter and stick with it. Then explain to them why they are being punished.
I also think the punishment need to fit the crime. I didn't give my kids time out because the didn't mind that, but they hated putting their nose in the conor or 30 minutes. They hated to miss a snack when the other kid got theirs, they really hated going into the yard and picking up sticks or rocks, taking a nap, or missing an event they wet looking forward to.
We had a tell them once attitude, not warning after warning. They were punished rather it was spanking or whatever worked best with that child. Sometimes they were given their choice and got the opposite of what they chose. Our youngest of 5 is 24 years old now and none of them have ever been in trouble with the law!!! We love them all and they love us. Every one of them will tell you as a child they always deserved what they got, and have thanked us for the way they were raised.

Beating your child is a parent's prerogative, caning is the preferred method in my country. Children have respect for their elders when disciplined. Your Old Testament and my Holy Book both state that sparing the rod spoils the child.

i know a lot of adults that should be caned. It just might be a much better lesson than probation, 3 or four days in jail, or pubic service. If the pain is severe enough it would probably detour some of these repeat offenders.

Spanking is wrong !! Many other ways to control a child then force. Do some research !!!
You're an idiot. Not all kids are the same. I have done everything in the book to teach my son what not to do and nothing works but spanking. He has been kicked out of 2 daycares because the teachers could not control him. They even said that if they were allowed to spank him then they believe he would do fine but spanking is against their policy and these are trained sitters in highly recommended daycare facilities. We go to a store he acts terrible because he thinks that he won't get spanked because I try not to spank in public because of people like you that throw a fit. Once we get down an aisle with no people and I spank him he instantly straightens up. I've done everything to keep from having to spank him all the time but not one damn thing works. I've even read a few books about it. Not everyone has a child that listens when you use other measures besides spanking.

I was spanked often as a child and I turned out just fine. Yea I have alot of sex with anything that will let me. And I've done alot of killing. But it's no big deal really. I make a decent living between welfare and food stamps. I eat Schwans food for 3 meals a day while sitting on my couch watching my 80 inch flat screen (bought with tax credits of course) all in all I feel great about my life. I've cut back drinking to just 1/2 gallon of moonshine a day, I normally trade my neighbor ramen noodles for it so it don't cost anything.

There is a time and place for spanking, public is not one of them. I'm assuming you all are the people that make wal mart unbearable. Ebt in hand, dressed in pajamas, with 4 screaming kids.

And yet when our...or your wonderful leaders think a country is misbehaving....remember the lie of weapons of mass destruction....what does our country resort to? Yup, violence but hey if it's effective.

Good luck with your son. I hope grows out of it or it will be the law giving him a thumping later on.

Trust me, with my profession I know all about that and you're right. I can just tell that one day he's gonna end up just like some of the criminals I deal with and I don't want that.

Two very different subjects. Tyrants can't be put in timeout or spanked.

I know this is off the subject but what is it about these people running around every place in pajamas? I know some of them look almost stylist but the are still pajamas! You don't have to dress up to go to WalMart but at least wear jeans and a T shirt.

And as I have stated before I don't disagree with spanking. I would rather it not be on public but if my kids did not mind and started to get out of control. All it took was a seat with my had across their seat and that was it. I will do my grandchildren the same way if needed. I was spanked as a child. Needed it more than I got I'm sure
