Hit no, spank yes. Parents shouldn't do this when mad, cause then it can go to far. Example, my daughter learned to walk early. We was out front and she ran into street. I didn't give warning, I just spanked. The next time, you may not have the chance to "warn". She is now 16, i spanked her less then 6 times. Now, my middle, was a little different. I think if you leave a mark, you have gone to far. But I also believe, just telling a kid over and over is pointless. look at the moms who can't control their kids at the super market. If you make a threat, follow through. I get compliments all the time on my kids, and I don't hit them. kids thrive on structure and consistency. Oh, and my youngest likes spankings, so it's better to put her in time out. LOL each kid is different.
yes. if more potent did there wouldn't be so many thugs and low life's in this world. time out or no allowance is ridiculous. white parents are always like I'll talk to them and give them another chance. that's why you don't ever see blacks or Mexicans on maury or any other talk show saying my kids are out of control. they discipline their kids.
I have 8 younger siblings, and it just depends on each personal kid. The current 2 year old does NOT respond well to harsh voices or spankings, but if you talk calmly to him and explain it in a way he can understand he calms down very quickly and learns/understands. Spanking is OK when you're teaching a lesson, and if its not used in extremes, ya know? Hope I helped at all :)
i wouldn't do neither but people will raise there kids differently and no i don't think peopl should hit there kids plus its against the law and child abuse and spanking is not that bad when your doing it with you hand but using other objects isn't right to me but once again people are different when discipling there child

Hitting, slapping, spanking with a belt etc all fall under "child abuse" and are against the law. However, an occasional embarrassing spanking on the bottom can do wonders. Spanking in any form can be abusive especially if it is done in anger and rage. You may consider it no ones' business but in many areas if you are reported to the authorities, even if they don't find anything, they still keep a copy of the report and you will have established a "record".
I am a firm believer of spanking my kids. I DO NOT believe in hitting my kids. There is a difference between hitting and spanking. children nowadays has no respect for noone and its because the parents is too scared to spank their kids. I was spanked plenty of times but I would never do the samething twice on what I got spanked for. My kids school has paddlings still and I noticed the kids on schools where we live aren't as bad in schools that my oldest has been to that doesn't allow paddlings in a different state. I have even talked to law officials about spankings. I have been told if you spank on the butt it is fine as long you do not leave no marks if you spank anywhere else it is abuse or leave a mark bigger than a thumb print. I know most people who were raised in the 80s like me got spankings and look back then did we have school shootings? Did we go out having adult relationships at 12 yrs old....NO cause we knew better! Plus for anyone who is a true honest Christian knows in the bible it says " Spare the rod, spoil the child" if it was so bad giving kids spankings our parents, grandparents, great grandparents....etc would never spanked us don't you think??
