Re: have a question no debate please just yes or no

I guess it really depends...but as far as it being a law...hell no! did you know that on a military post 'corporal punishment' is legal, but threatening the child "Wait till we get home and you're gonna get spanked" is punishable? Just FYI...I find it very interesting!

Yes! Not a hard spanking. Just a little pat on the bottom or hand. There is a HUGE difference between abuse and spanking.

Here in our house our kids have barely ever been spanked. In all the yrs they have been alive. They both have had 2-3 pats on the bottom.

Re: have a question no debate please just yes or no

yes and sometimes.

It depends on dd. I always said that I wouldn't spank since I was literally beaten as a child. Then dd came along....when I didn't give her an occasional swat for misbehaving or talking back to me, it just got worse and worse. I'm sorry, but I do NOT want to be like one of those parents on Super Nanny or have children that behave terribly that way.


Here's something interesting that I watched though... ha ha! and it was on a tv show too! ... It was on an old re-run of Judging amy ...and she was making a ruling on an abuse case. And she said something like ... "It's only in America that we can hit our children and treat them as our own property. If you hit someone else like how you hit your child, it would be considered assault."

Food for thought anyways....and then my dd decided to draw in sharpie all over my mom's house...so she got swatted. lol

Re: have a question no debate please just yes or no

yes and I'm sure I will.

here's the thing... a "swat" and a Pat on the butt IMO ARE spanking. And yes, I believe in SPANKING but not BEATING.

B-I-G difference. Its should never be the first line of discipline but now way no how should anyone be outlawing it.

Re: have a question no debate please just yes or no

Yes I spank. I agree with what some are saying though, that each kid needs different forms of punishment to get an important point across. The thing is, the people who are beating there kids could care less what the law is. And the people who are really trying to do what's best for their children, by raising them to be respectful, disiplined people, are now put into a state of fear, because they no longer have a right to raise their children in a manner that is right for them.
