Corporal Punishment Should Not Be Used to Punish Children
Think, a seven year old boy returns home from school, throws his backpack on the floor, and immediately rushes to his room to play his favorite videogame.

Some more psycho babble!
I was smacked at home and at school in my childhood,and we could be caned by the headmaster on our bottoms up until senior year.
Every child was spanked back then,and it was accepted by the kids,because we knew nothing else.
We knew if we were naughty and broke the rules laid down for us,we'd be spanked,and so you endeavoured not to break the rules,and if you did,you had nobody else to blame but yourself.
Most spankings were more of a reminder than anything else.
The only time we'd ever really resent being spanked is if it was not fair.
I don't recall ever being smacked for anything unfairly.
We weren't beaten,as some people seem to think.
People in the neighbourhood and relatives were a lot closer in those days,and anybody using unacceptable force or beating up their kids would get short shrift.
There were child protection laws in place,and I can't recall any kid I ever knew who was beaten.
Parents loved their kids.
They didn't want to hurt them.
Spankings were meant to hurt though,and they did.
We got hand spanking usually,or the hairbrush when I was older,on the bare bottom.
Not all that often,true,but I knew the score.
Nobody had kittens back then,just because a kid had a bruise or two on their backside.
Some kids bruise easier than others,that's all.
As for spanking a kid so hard it is going to give him back problems in later life..it would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic.
We didn't fear our parents and teachers,because we knew if we behaved we were ok.
You didn't smartarse them though,because that was not tolerated and quite right too.
Sexual problems due to spanking?
OMG! We were little kids!
What did we know about sex?
The only thing that worried me when I was pants down over my parents knee,was how hard and how long I was gonna be spanked.
There are spanking fetishes true,but there are loads of people who have never been spanked in their life have them,so explain that!
I don't believe a word of that cr*p!
I'm not saying spanking is the only way.
Positive reinforcement is just as important.
But kids need to know that there are painful consequences for bad behaviour,and spanking is short,sharp and effective.
Suspensions at schools are more bloody rewards than punishments for most of the kids who play up.
Dread of pain is a basic human characteristic,and even the threat of pain can concentrate the mind wonderfully!

I was spanked more than most people, but I do not think that it is either necessary or possible to subject kids to numerous bare bottom spankings today.
