Yeah this confuses me sometimes too.
I hear people say this is an AP community, but then I see polls like this one and the spankers and the nonspankers are nearly head-to-head in the results, and I think that this is not really all that AP of a place. WHich is fine, I come here for the diaper addiction, not for my parenting stuff really.

I was spanked and we do spank not that often though. We like time outs better and are more effective right now for our 2 1/2 year old. We always explain why she is getting punished.

I don't believe in assaulting other people. I was spanked and i would NEVER do that to my kids.

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

I was spanked occasionally. When DD is older she may have her hand spanked, but only when it is in a bad situation, hot things etc. I won't ever do the whole, lay her out and whip her butt thing, I don't like that. I know that being spanked was not an effective punishment with me, it just made me mad and made me want to misbehave more to make my grandparents mad like I felt.

I was never spanked at home (paddled often at school ) and I have no intention of ever spanking my son.

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

I was spanked and I initially spanked my kids because I thought it was the right thing to do but let's just say that it didn't work out well. We stopped spanking years ago before our youngest 2 were born. None of my 4 kids are spoiled.
