No, spanking worked great for me and all the kids I grew up with. To many people want to be there kids friends instead of parents. I firmly believe kids should be at least a little scared of there parents.

No Need to bend over knee, no sense to remove pants, just grab an arm or leg and start wailing or swating the butt cheek depending the severeity of the child's wrongdoing...

over the knee , no but a swat to the butt yes , making a child stand and bend is a very instrumental attention getter , open hand swat . never bare bottom

nope, alot of what is wrong with kids today is a lack of spanking or anyother type of disipline. Time out, please, that would have been 5 minutes for me to plot my next move.

NO it is not abuse, and if more people did it routinely we might not need to have full-time police officers in the schools and all these zero-tolerance laws. It also does not matter the gender, mom or dad can spank son or daughter, it's all okay (I thought I'd hit that next question off at the pass)

Absolutely not! But, using a belt, tree branches, or any other thing that leaves a mark, or bruise for more than a day is!! I know.

That's sexual abuse, and it was NO accident!!! Does the memory bother you? If so, maybe you should consider counseling. Just a suggestion.

no there is no lesson learned except pain and hate there are a number of ways to discipline a child but hitting is not one...

usually we agree on things but this one i disagree on , i am old enough to remember when kids got a spanking in school, church ,store, home or any place they did something wrong or acted up and it usually only took one correction to get the full attention of the child who didn't do it again or act up , and no i am advocating abuse but just a plain ole butt spanking . some times you can have a time out or take away a toy , set in the corner , etc but for the very serious infractions a swift paddling will always work wonders .
just look at the public school systems no spankings and the students run the schools .

i understand your point but i rather take a whoopin then be grounded for a month which meant no tv right home from school there was no such thing as a five minute time out no phone basically house arrest that straighten me out more then being whoop and i got my fair share of them until one day my dad who was a pattern maker made a paddle that looked like a beavers tail with a handle and he broke it over my rear end i turned to him and asked "are you happy now" but i do believe a swat on the hand or butt for the very young is OK like when they touch the fire etc...i should have explained it better ... nice we can talk about it...the one time i do remeber learning from being hit was when i was about 16 years old i was a school jock and in pretty good shape but i told my mom to shut the f**k up and pop hit me close fisted right in the jaw and said if i didn't like i was to leave...never cursed in my house again...lesson learned...

ok were still good , i got the soap in the mouth thing for cursing . but we see the kids who haven't had any correction everyday in our lives and when he or she gets into real trouble the parent or parents can't figure out why little johnny is in trouble or in jail .

I only received soap in the mouth a few times. But, I did get slapped repeatedly, and beaten with a belt repeatedly, in addition to a few other 'punishments'. But, I don't think I was a 'bad' child. Parents wanted to 'make an example of me'---for my siblings. I was the oldest of five, from my mother's first marriage, adopted by her second husband, who was a loser that spent 3 years in prison and was told, as a child, that it was 'my responsibility' to set an example and had to help raise the other four. WTF? They weren't MY children, they were HERS/THEIRS. And, I think that neither of these people had a clue, as how to raise children. Their philosophy? If your kids don't " mind"- beat them into submission. Well, that philosophy doesn't help people develop thinking skills, or learn how to make good decisions, it just creates *ANGRY* and rebellious people. And I think that a lot of the beatings were due to being overwhelmed by the reality of having 5 kids, no support system, we were pretty much socially isolated, and the financial burden/ responsibility of actually raising 5 kids (ESPECIALLY, if the woman ALSO has to 'raise' her irresponsible husband.) A really good book to read, TOXIC PARENTS by Dr. Susan Forward.*sigh* used to think that I wanted kids, but, I am afraid that I would raise them the way I was raised just hitting/ beating on them when I am angry, frustrated or overwhelmed or when I had negative emotions that I need to dispel. You tend to raise kids the way you were raised, so,NO KIDS FOR ME! Wouldn't do that to someone else. My 2 cents worth.

I TRIED to be a good kid, but, the rules kept changing. I NEVER knew just EXACTLY what the rules were. Just keep MOM from being unhappy, 'cause when Moms unhappy, ain't NOBODY happy. Dad would beat the f*ck out of people, because she was unhappy. Like I said, too many kids and not enough of a support system. But, PARENTS wanted it that way. Socially isolated.
