So what you guys think? I was spanked as a child. I am 20 now however, there are people my age or couple years younger never got spanked, most never got punished at all. Is spanking now one of them "Back in the good ole' days..." situations? Keep in mind I am talking about spanking younger kids from toddlers to about 10 or so (Is 10 too old to be given spankings?) Not preteens/teens.

It has been my observation that todays parents who employ spanking as a parenting tool, dont know the proper way. They do it with impulse and anger, they regret it and let the child have his or her way. That doesnt work.
First a parent needs to know that their child is normal physically and mentally. Dont even consider spanking as a parenting tool for a child who is challenged or autistic.
I was young once and received many spankings. I was whipped hard, but I never was beat or abused. I never got hit in the head. I didnt soon forget what I had done wrong or how not to repeat it. I love my parents for taking the time to properly correct me when I was wrong. I was furious with them immediately after the spanking, but I knew as I know today, it was done out of love because they cared for me.
Spanking didnt make me aggressive. In fact I get aggravated yet today, in my 69th year, at how easily influenced I am. Sometimes, Id like to have some aggressiveness.
The key is PROPER. So many parents today do not seem to understand there is a right and proper routine for spanking and a wrong way.
Parents do not have the right to spank. Parents have an obligation to spank if the child is normal and healthy.
When one lady was asked why she spanked her children, she said,I do it so the rest of the world doesnt have to.
In my opinion, this is right on!
No child of any age should be struck on the head Never! In my opinion, the child face down across the parents lap, slapped on the butt with the hand is sufficient. No need for belts, paddles, etc.
Spanking should never be for the reasons of anger, revenge, or sexual release. It is for the child alone and only when they have earned it. If the child hasnt earned it, dont even give it a thought. All spanking should be accompanied by a little discussion before, very little during, and a lot after the spanking. As for age difference, before age four, a discussion reinforced with a slap on the butt should be enough. Ages four to sixteen, depending on the offense, a full spanking routine should be considered. After age ten, consider never spanking again, but continue the verbal discussions. Suggest to your children that they learn this method and pass it along to their children.
If you take the time to learn and care about your children, give them the proper discipline, then maybe they wont ever land in prison.
