Re: Spin Off Poll: Were you spanked & do you spank?

I was spanked as a kid (never beat), I respect my parents, they did it out of love. I spank my kids as a last resort. I make sure it's never out of anger and I use a wooden spoon on their booty only, same as mom used on me. I will usually send them to their room or make them do a random extra chore. If they have potty mouths, they may get a pinch on the cheek. My mom used to put soap in my brother's mouth and he ended up enjoying the taste of it . So I'm not interested in that method. I have never left any marks or bruises, BTW. Spanking always seems to be the last resort, I think I'm too lazy to go to the drawer, get the spoon, find my kid, and spank him/her.

Re: Spin Off Poll: Were you spanked & do you spank?

I was spanked on occasion by my Dad, whenever he felt the urge to try to actually be a parent. It was almost as if he felt at a loss as to how to be a parent, so he just totally uninvolved himself from us kids - then out of nowhere, he'd feel some need to step in and take control of his family again, and he'd spank. Or yell, or whatever he felt was necessary.

I absolutely, positively will never spank my son.

I spank my dc, and I was spanked as a child. After I spank dc I explain why they were spanked and then give love to reassure that I still love 'em!
I completely believe the saying "Spare the rod, spoil the child"

Re: Spin Off Poll: Were you spanked & do you spank?

I was spanked as a child, I do not spank my children. I use much more effective disciplinary techniques. I never want my children to be afraid of me physically hurting them. I remember doing something wrong once and being scared to death to tell my mom because I didn't want to get hurt. My mom didn't "abuse" us, just spanked us, but we would hide under our beds if we did something wrong because we didn't want her hurting us. I never want my daughters to feel like that.

I was not spanked and will never spank(hit) my dc. I'm still amazed at how many people were spanked and continue the cycle, especially in a NFL community.....

Re: Spin Off Poll: Were you spanked & do you spank?

My parents spanked only if it was a danger situation, like running into the street, grabbing for a hot time (hand slapped). I do the same. I would rather my kids feel the pain of a quick spank on the butt than get hit by a car. I want her to associate the street, or parking lot, with a spank. So, only if the end result of the actions would be them getting seriously hurt. Make sense?
ETA-I only do a quick swat, never more than once and I make sure I tell them WHY

I was spanked but on very few occassions and it was always my mother. My father said it wasn't fair to have a man his size spank a child.

I don't spank ds.
