OP do not bother with anything anyone said that replied to one if they were not commenting on one. Everyone above this comment just craves attention so really they have problems and do not matter. "Everybody knows the only people who need crave attention as much as first comment replyers is 16 year old girls and Harley Riders."
Kids are getting more and more gutsy as parents continue to lose authority and spine.
I really do hope some of the people commenting are joking, and realize the difference between a spanking and an actual 'beating'. There is a difference. It's part of a parents job to restrain themselves.To have a controlled temper. To learn WHEN and to learn when to stop. The reason people are so down on spanking is because parents, I admit, do take it way to far sometimes. Or the word 'abuse' is too quickly thrown into the mix. Time-outs are a perfectly acceptable form of punishment, but, a quick swat on the behind wont kill them either. A quick swat never filled me with killing rage or a feelings of violence or hatred. For being a 'spanked' child, I'm actually quite a nice and polite person and was considered an overachiever in school. My parents received many compliments on my attitude. I do not at ALL, see myself as an abuse victim. Half the time, I can't even remember all the spankings, let alone cry out 'abuse' over them. I've seen the no-spanking parenting method, and it worked great on one, and was useless on another. I've seen the spanking method - same results. Regardless of which method you use, most kids will grow-up and do whatever they want to do anyway. Really, we have no right to judge other parents parenting styles so harshly. When really, it's all just over a little swat on the behind. -Sorry for the LONG LONG LONG rant.-
