We got spanked as kids. My dad was strict and he believed in corporal punishment. It did scare the crap out of us when we were younger and we followed him for fear of getting hit.

I don't think so. Studies have shown that kids who got spanked tend to be more aggressive. I'd rather talk to them about what they did wrong and ground them.

A bit would be okay. Just not too much. Using your palms would be good to get your point across. No need to really beat up the kid. What's important is they understand why they're being punished.

We never got spanked and we turned out okay. I guess it depends on how the parents discipline their kids. My parents talked to us and grounded us if we did something wrong.

True. My parents did get carried away with the spanking sometimes. It was too much. They believed spanking was a good way to discipline kids.

No. It's better to make kids see the wrong they did by talking to them. I don't think spanking does that. Punishing and hurting kids is just too much for me.

My grandma spanked us when we were kids. We were a rowdy bunch and we really pushed her to snap. She did it once or twice and that was it. She did explain why and we're good with her explanation.

You can spank their hand if they did something bad. It won't be that hard but hard enough for the kid to understand what she did is wrong and explain why you spanked them.

My dad used to spank us. He believes in corporal punishment, He always told us talking wouldn't solve anything. He'd whip our ass every time we did something wrong so we'd stop doing it.

I spanked my kid a handful of times only. I don't like spanking as much as possible but if there is a need then I have to do it. I want to raise my child as lovingly as possible so I try to ground them.
