This is my opinion and my opinion only. Spanking a child over the knee on their bare bottom is discipline to me. It's not child abuse to me. Spanking with wooden hairbrushes and paddles is discipline to me too. It's not child abuse to me either. Spanking does not work on every child. Because every child is not the same. What may work on one child will not work on the other child. If a child deserve a spanking over the knee on their bare bottom with a wooden hairbrush or the hand then they should get it. I don't have kids. But I believe in spanking. There will be no arguing, no judging parents, and there will be no telling parents they are child abusers just because they spank their kids. There is a difference between a beating and a spanking. A spanking is when a child has a BRIGHT RED BOTTOM.
A beating is when the child has permanent marks, bruises, the child is bleeding blood.
So i'm just wondering do you think spanking a child over the knee on the bare bottom is discipline or child abuse?
Children need love and discipline in a consistent manner. "Spare the rod ..."

We should be sure not to punish in anger and always reinforce the child with the lessons they are to learn from the love it took to discipline them. No child will ever be pleased, but they will come to appreciate it in the long run.

That said ... it should never be done in public. After a while a firm word will be all that is necessary to remind the child who is the boss.

spare the rod SPOIL THE BRAT ! spank where and when needed even in public then the spoiled child will learn to never do or act like that again . And so many parents wonder why their child turns out so bad ! Stop using tv , school and other electronic devices as a built in babysitter and teach your children about life and the differences between right and wrong by have spanking as part of the learning curve , bet you have a better , more adjusted child and adult !

In 29 countries1 around the world, it is illegal for a parent, teacher, or anyone else to spank a child, and 113 countries prohibit corporal punishment in schools. Yet in all of North America, physical punishment by a parent, as long as it is not severe, is still seen by many as necessary discipline, and condoned, or sadly, even encouraged.
For the past several years, many psychiatrists, sociological researchers, and parents have recommended that we seriously consider banning the physical punishment of children. The most important reason, according to Dr. Peter Newell, coordinator of the organization End Punishment of Children (EPOCH)2, is that "all people have the right to protection of their physical integrity, and children are people too."3

1. Hitting children teaches them to become hitters themselves. Extensive research data is now available to support a direct correlation between corporal punishment in childhood and aggressive or violent behavior in the teenage and adult years. Virtually all of the most dangerous criminals were regularly threatened and punished in childhood. It is nature's plan that children learn attitudes and behaviors through observation and imitation of their parents' actions, for good or ill. Thus it is the responsibility of parents to set an example of empathy and wisdom.

When I divorced, the State preferred giving custody of kids to their Moms and 3 attorneys told me I had 0 chance of getting custody of them. Even though their Mom had been confirmed to struggle with alcohol abuse and, unlike me, couldn't hold a job.

So my kids were raised by my ex and her 3rd husband for years. I picked them up one Summer and heard their Step-father, at Mom's request, put welts on our youngest's bare bum that remained for 2 weeks. I called and told her the kids weren't coming back.

She sent the P D by and I explained to them why I wouldn't return them and told them if they must arrest me, I'd need to get my family to come and stay with my kids. They spoke with each other and then separately with my kids, thanked me and left.

I felt strongly enough about abusive bare backside spanking of mine that, for the first and last time in my life, I knowingly violated a Custodial Court Order. My kids visited Mom several days at a time after that and I gained custody shortly after.

I disciplined my kids, other than by spanking their bare bottoms and I'm very proud of the responsible, self-driven young adult that each of them became. So, yes, I believe spanking a child over the knee on the bare bottom can definitely be child abuse.

I was thrown over the knee for a spanking wheneve i stepped out of line. No harm done. It pulled my head out of my ss... straightened me out real quick.
I don't wanna get all political and sht, but the kids of today could do with a more harsher punishments and at the least, learn some dmn respect.
I have a Daughter and thankfully just the threat of punishment swiftly changes her attitude.

I believe in spanking. Very much so.

I do not...believe in a step parent spanking a step child.

I've a saying. "Do you know why they are called 'step parents'? Because they step on children"

A step parent is a total stranger to a child, and should leave the raising and discipline to the biological parent/s. Period.

the problem with the whole spanking issue, is there is little room for balance... spanking an unruly, or disobient child through their clothing on their rear is prudent,,among other forms of discipline.. we are quickly becoming a nation of no accountablitily,,,evevery one owes me.. no discipline from getting up at 6 am to put in a hard days work, to taking care of a flippin guppy...
know the boundaries on both sides...its not "rock science" :)

I was one of 11 children and without the threat of the switch or belt mom and dad had no chance, usually a good talking to and extra chores were corrected the problem but in those rare instances one of us got a whooping we deserved it because we done something we "knew" was wrong.
I don't have children so I'm not an expert in the area but seems like in today's world I see a lot of parents that can't out think their children and resort to whooping it for lack of any other imaginative methods of correcting the child.
Humiliating a child by any means is never acceptably, that's where the psychological effects develop.

No one should strike a child's bare bottom as discipline...nuff said. It is corporal punishment and child abuse.

Agreed. But a slap on the butt, or a wack on the butt with a wooden spoon, or a quick slap with a belt on the butt (once) is not overboard. Some kids need that type of discipline.
