It will help remind them to pull up their pants

I think kids need some discipline, and if a parent spanks a kid as a last resort in the heirarchy of discipline, it is not necessarily bad. I definitely don't see it as failure on the part of the parent. Keep in mind, I am talking about harmless "swats" as some of you termed them. Regarding the "mention" of woode spoons, belts, etc., I don't think those are so bad as long as they are only "mentioned" (as some elusive double-secret threat). And what I received as a kid was never "bare-bottomed" fortunately. All of you I see here who got some forms of physical punishment as kids seem to have turned out alright.

I will say that I think a risky, negligent trend I see more and more these days is young parents letting their kids do and get away with "whatever" because "kids will be kids." That is only going to be bad for the kids as they mature.

Heh...I'd certainly never do that.

I think this post sums up my opinion of spanking fairly well.

Over the past 10-15 years or so, I've seen a real change in the parent-child relationship, wherein kids have more power and parents are less willing to use discipline. A lot of this has to do with schools and the media better educating kids about child abuse and innapropriate touching (a VERY good thing, don't get me wrong here) but some of the unintended effects of this have made some parents afraid to use discipline.

A good example of this happened when my then 5 year old son received a well deserved swat on the behind and the first thing he did was pick up the phone and start to dial 911 to report me for child abuse

I see a lot of disrespectful kids these days, doing things that I wouldn't have dreamed of doing simply because I knew I would suffer the wrath of mom, which caused just enough fear to make me stop and think twice. Kids today have the upper hand and they know it.

I would never spank a child. Personally, I am totally opposed to such things but have to admit that some mothers told me that practical life is a little different.. anyway, I would never even touch my child, and also would not allow anyone else to.

Yeah, and many people also seem to take it for granted that you will find their offspring's behaviour as charming and delightful as they do. Which is probably not surprising considering how many people are prepared to coo over other people's children no matter what they do.

I think it helped me grow up into a person who is creative and independent-thinking, but also responsible.
pax, you will make a great parent.

we need more who think like you.

ah, but if their pants are already too low, it makes it that much easier to give them a swift spanking ... low riders are simply *begging* for a smacked bottom.

Thanks for saying so.

I'm looking forward to being a mom someday.

it brings to nothing, it's just a corporal violence act, words are much better, we have the reason, this is the only thing we must use..................
children have an infinite comprehension place in their brains, what sometimes matters in adults who spank them

I can remember pissing my mom off so much when I threatened to report her for "child abuse" when we had a dispute. While it is a very good thing for kids to learn about it, I suppose I may be a little cynical to divulge it like this, but every rose has its thorn.

I think sometimes even a good thing can have it's paradox, so to speak.

I got the wooden spoon when I acted up and it sure as hell taught me manners, and my Dad got the belt and the cane and he turned out fine. I know quite a few impulsive individuals who have total disregard for others who were spoiled as kids and always got what they wanted. Children can be spoken too but that alone does not deter them from repeating.

If a child is struck with intent to cause harm or without cause though, that is a problem.
