That often happens when people spank out of anger. To me, it's abuse. My kids (when they do get spanked rarely) get ONE single swat. It's enough to get their attention, and make them think twice before doing whatever it was that they did to get in trouble. This is after numerous warnings/timeouts/writing sentences for the same offense. It's definitely used as a last resort for us. But I have to be honest - it works.
