I remember when I was a child and got in trouble my mum/dad would come and take my clothes off and then I got 40 to 60 hits with either a paddle,belt,wooden spoon,leather strap and then I had to stand in the cornor with no clothes on. I also remember going to school and I had got in a fight with another child and the teacher saw so when the bell rang and we wnet back to class after the teacher got the students to work he called me up and he took me in to the back room were we hung up are coats and he asked me if I had been fighting and I said yes and he then took the strap off the wall and told me to put my pants and underwere down to my knees and then lean over the table and I got hit with the strap 35 time and the worse thing was going back knowing that the others had heard it all.
seems to me folks liked to whoop your azz naked.

Spanking is abuse...period. So who typically spanks anymore? An ignorant person who does it because "my pappy done did it to me, so it must work, by golly" or a lazy person who does not want to bother learning and using effective, non-abusive parenting skills.
your logic is abuse to other peoples minds....spanking is ok, as long as its done with the intent of punishment. you must have been abused as a child.the most dangerous people in society are between the ages of 15-18...why? because parents arent allowed to smack there kids for doin stupid **** anymore. the lack of punishment is amazing.

I was whipped as a child, when I did something wrong I got lit up with the belt by my dad. My mom, whip me with the thin branch off the tree or the extention cord...now I consider that child abuse cause that would leave welps on me. I did spank my kids whe they were young with my hand or belt. Spanking,when done right by parents is not a bad thing...all children need correction and God says to give it to them. Proverbs 23:13-14
im not big on the bible...but i completely agree, i got the switch when i was little,but i never took a gun to school!why? cause my old man would kick my ass! now kids can walk around without strict punishment,beating on there peers, shooting other kids.....and they get away with it !

I have 4 children aged 2,3,4,6. When they misbehave they get spankings.Period. My two youngest know all to well what it means when mommy gives the stern look and starts taking their diapers off. I most always spank bare bottom unless we're in public where its just not a good idea. So sometimes they may get away with a light spanking over their clothes. When we are at or on our way home however I generally take off their clotes to spank them as I believe this gives complete focus to the task at hand for child. I use my hand or a wooden spoon.

I think you should spank they're bottoms until they are red hot!!! The same happed to me with the water, I took a shower then right to the lap for a good hard spanking with a soaking bottom. After that my mom put me in the corner naked and said I was gonna be there all day!!! Sadly that didn't happen, once my dad got home at 6 I was over the lap again!!! that night I got another spanking in the living room in front of my sister and brother!!! Once my dad was done he said to them " you guys are growing up, it's time to learn how to spank your kids" so I got two more spankings from my siblings. So I learned a valuable lesson on what not to say in front of your friends!!! Now I think I turned out right so I spank my kids!!!

Just say NO to spanking. It is unecessary for proper discipline. Tell me why I have a 4.0 gpa National Honor Student daughter who has never ever once received a spanking? Spanking is not much different from child abuse!

I respectfully disagree, my dad beat the daylights out of me, if he hadn't, I'd of been a pretty mean lad! Some kids, like your daughter, you can reason with, but if they were like me, you need to use the hickory switch to get our attention!

Some children need a spanking here and there and some don't.It's a fact.Your daughter is obviously one of those who don't and you are fortunate to have such a compliant even tempered child. But not all children are like that.. Spanking is not child abuse. Hitting, beating, slapping, yes.There is a big difference. Spanking on the buttocks with your open hand is not.And, spanking should not be your first response to misbehavior, unless that behavior causes or could cause harm or injury to another or themselves.Also, don't spank because you are mad, only to correct harmful or extremely disrespectful behavior.(in which case it is used after repeat behavior and discussing the issue did not resolve it). I was never the type who flew off the handle and started whaling on my kids.But, I've seen others do just that. I don't agree with that.

IMO-
No child needs to be spanked. Spanking a child for being agressive? Do you see the flaw in that logic?
Spanking a child for being disrespectful? What? Are you going to beat a child into respecting you? News flash - it doesn't work that way! It has the exact opposite effect. Fear and respect are two different things.
There are plenty of other parenting tools out there.
We all have the urge now and again to smack the crap out of our children.....but it's NEVER the right thing to do.

Go back and read my post again. Did I say beat a child? No, I was very specific. There is a difference, whether you agree or not.Spanking is NOT child abuse.Beating, hitting, slapping a child is. Did I say smack the crap out of children? No.Did I say spanking was the thing to do in all instances? No.And let me tell you, if my child rides his bike into traffic, he IS going to get a spanking for it, although my children have been taught since very young to stay out of the street and have never done it. And no, I didn't have to spank them to instill it.. What's better? Getting hit by a car and dying or giving a spanking to teach them?? There is a hardheaded 5 year old boy down the block who rides his bike into the street without even looking quite frequently and one of these days he is going to get picked off by a car. He never gets spanked and has been scolded by me and others for it.His mother has scolded him for it. He just laughs and keeps on going. I think that boy is ready for a spanking, because stern talking doesn't seem to be effective.One time I went out to get him and told him to stop and he went further out in the lane.If there had been a car at that moment, that would have been the end of him.I don't live on a quiet street, but a busy main street.

Why is it when people don't agree with your opinion they take what you said and twist it all up and turn it into something it isn't?Which is exactly what you did.

If you don't think spanking your child is ever the right thing to do, that's fine, for YOU and YOUR child. But don't tell me what's right for me and mine. And don't twist what I say to suit your opposing view.

Tell me, Dr Spock, did you do an experiment with your children , beat them into respecting you? Or smacked the crap out of them, and then deduced that it had the opposite effect?You seem to be very knowledgeable about that kind of abuse.

Or are you one of those who reads all the child psychology books but has never had a child and loves to tell others what is right for them in raising their children? One of those kind........

Go post to somebody who will agree with you.

And BTW, spanking your child in California is legal.An age appropriate spanking on the buttocks with an open hand.Spanking, not beating, hitting or slapping.

Cool your jets, sister. I wasn't responding to anyone specifically. I was posting my opinion on a public forum, isn't that what we're supposed to be doing here?
It seems maybe YOU are the one who has a problem with other people's opinions.
Go ahead, spank your kids. It's a free country, especially (apparently) in California.
You said, yourself, that you managed to keep your children from running into the street without spanking - so, why spank? A good stern talking-to only works when it is coming from an adult that the child trusts. No child will completely feel safe with you if you hit them.

No, I am no Dr. Spock. I do have a special needs child that brings me to the brink of insanity some days. I do have the urge to hit him sometimes, like I was spanked as a child. You live what you know....
But I know better. And I remind myself that this child loves me completely, and if I hit him, he may change his mind.

I am, also, a mental health counselor. There is no doubt in my mind that adults who have emotional problems, were at one point in their lives, children who were physically and/or emotionally abused my their parents. Not EVERYONE, of course, I'm sure there are some exceptions out there, but is a correlation that cannot be ignored.

THIS IS MY OPINION. You are welcome to your own opinion.....

Dr. Spock is an idiot! Enough said, until someone has had children, don't try to tell the ones of us that raised them what works and don't work, you want a brat!?!? Then go with the timeout, you want one to walk the chalk, then find yourself a belt or switch, quit being a pu%%y!
