This is question I was interested with in my psychology class...I am for physical punishment. It was okay to use belts when I was little, and I don't see anything wrong with it. My cousins are younger now, and they are not disciplined like I was. They RUN the house, and I do literally mean that! It sucks that parents are no longer allowed to discipline their children, and now there's this tension that those who are familiar with physical punishment from their younger years that their parents are abusive.

I'm 17 and have only my Mom and sister Mom has always been strict and spanking is used to maintain the rules. I don't like it but will never physically resist my Moms orders so I just go along when she says it's time for a spanking.
