I am also pro spanking...there is a BIG difference between beating a child and spanking a child. Mine (both girls 7 & 4) get spanked..I was spanked....I think the entire Generation X was spanked and I do believe that we are all normal, well-adjusted adults because of it. Many of today's parents are afraid to discipline their children for fear of being charged with Child Abuse....THERE IS A MAJOR DIFFERENCE!!! And America is going to Hell in a Handbasket because of it!!

I just have to reply to this thread.
I have twin 3 year olds, and I have been known to swat a bottom when necessary. And I work for Children and Youth Services, so I know what abuse really is- a good old fashioned over the knee spanking is acceptable. I recommend you all check your state Laws, as some states have actually outlawed corporal punishment. And I am glad to see that none of you will be raising the next spoiled brat who thinks they deserve the world handed to them!

I am pro-spanking, "Spare the rod, spoil the child." I am a single mom of 3 boys, and I spanked all of them. I wanted them to know I was boss, and not worry about them getting wild or physical with me when they got to be bigger than me.

I have to say I am pro spanking , if you get control of them when they are little then when they get older you don't have to worry about them running the streets and getting into trouble with the law.

Spanking is a last resort in my household. Maybe that's to a fault though since I am an extremely patient person, but definitely not soft spoken. My son definitely tries to push my limits sometimes and it takes a lot to push me too far and when he does, oh boy! He knows he did something deeply wrong. I don't like to spank, but when push comes to shove...

I am a pro spanking mom. I have 4 girls. My youngest is 4 months so of course she is not at discipline age. I taught all my other girls discipline when they were able to understand. I didn't spank right off the bat but did time out when they were under age 3. I think spanking is a progressive discipline in a way. You don't spank a year old baby. They have to understand wrong from right and it is different for each child. My 10 year old didn't need many spankings and I don't remember the last one she got. My 9 year old on the other hand was harder to get through to. Nothing but a spanking worked for her. Every child is different. My 3rd child is now almost 7 and talking to her works best but she does get a spanking from time to time and she accepts it. She goes to her room and I talk to her and give her a spanking. I don't think yelling does anything. They know what spankings are for and one day they will probably discipline the same. Parents deserve respect and they won't learn it anywhere else. They see kids throwing fits in the store and they don't even think about it lol. Spare the rod and you will spoil the child. Parents in my opinion try to hard to be "friends" with their kids and make them their equal. A student isn't equal to their teacher.

the problem is that everyone is so concerned about them being little adults, that they don't realize that they are children and a child's job is to learn as much as they can. And that it is our job as parents to teach them right from wrong and that there are consequence to every action . there is nothing wrong with spanking your child as long as they deserve it. the Bible say if you spare the rod you hate your child, a child with out discipline can not grow into a health adult, they do not know how to handle conflict and or understand bounders. with out this consequence you a bunch of parents who want to be there child's friend.. and that blurs the line of respect between parents. so with out this respect childern lose respect for all adult figures.

Yes, I am pro-spanking, though not as a first resort. I have four girls (though one is still an infant, so she's certainly never been spanked).

I am very PRO spanking and so is my husband. We are not into full on beatings lol, but I truly believe "Spare the rod Spoil the child". They work our daughter is 5, she has had a few good spankings in her life, and due to that she hardly gets into trouble. She knows when we mean business lol. Our son on the other hand is a little more hard headed and will push his limit, but once he receives that butt whoopin he is an angle for at least a week or 2. I hate that now days we are supposed to let our kids run all over us, I'm sorry but these soft spoken "please stop" parents are killing our society. Empty threats don't work..... But I guarantee a few good butt whoopin's will =).

I am a pro spanker... That time out crap don't work, I do believe in giving a child a warning so they will know the consequences of their actions..

[deleted account]

I think spanking should be a last resort. When I was a child I got my fair share of them (and probably should of got some more) but, I turned out just fine. Sometimes timeouts and a stern talking to doesn't work. I usually let my daughter get away with murder and when it comes down to the punishment I fold and let her daddy do the spanking. I believe spanking is a personal preference and should not be judged as harshly if the punishment is effective as long as it does not cross into the abuse territory.

Yes we are here!!! I only have a little 6 year old girl and she's almost my height! (She's 50.5in and I'm only 64.in).
I had to get her early with the spanking, I can't have her thinking that she disrespect me and hit on me like I'm on of the kids at school! If you love your kids they must be corrected otherwise they'll think that it's okay to do whatever cause for some kids time out is not enough! Especially when the act up when your not around and all their doing is showing whomever is taking care of the lm that they don't have any respect for authority and intern no respect for you! The represents you wherever they may be gotta teach them how to act. Cause if they act up with the wrong one that person might give them that ass whooping that was needed a long time ago!

I have 4 kids, when they were little my younger ones my twins. I had a problem with hitting every one and bitting. Since they were little talking and time outs were pointless. So spanking worked. Not a lot just a couple whacks on the butt. It showed If you hit people then they'll hit you backed. I got spanked as a kid and I'm well rounded. I didn't think it was abusive. When I got older I had lectures. My teen kids get lecture know instead of spankings. I hope I don't sound evil. But spanking is best discipline for Pre-school aged (3-7). Because they won't listen to talks them after being in trouble and time out let them plan what to do next to make you mad. I see a positive benefit to spanking if it's done right

I'm as pro-spanking as anyone (or almost anyone), Lucy, but I seriously hope you're exaggerating when you talk of your kids not being able to sit comfortably for a couple of days. Frankly, if it's true, that's indefensible.

You say the paddlings and strappings have worked exceptionally well and that your kids both know what to expect when they break any of your rules. With all due respect, are your children slow learners or what? Why on earth do they continue to invite such discomfort for their bottoms?

I've read scads of online accounts like yours where spanking is supposed to be working like a charm. The only thing is, the kids are regularly being spanked. And if it's on the bare bottom with a paddle or a strap, your two figure to need some extra tutoring on the subject of Actions & Consequences.

I think it has to do with the motivation behind the discipline. No matter what form of discipline you use (spanking, time-outs, loss of privileges, extra chores, etc), kids ALWAYS know when you have control...and when you don't. Any form of discipline you use when you are not in control of yourself is not going to be effective.

I was certainly spanked as a child. I certainly didn't like it at the time. But I never even once thought my dad (or mom) was hitting me out of anger, or because they didn't know what else to do. For me, the punishment (no matter what it was) always fit the crime, and was directly related to MY actions (or inactions). I think the mistake people make is when they lash out with discipline - ANY discipline - in either anger or desperation. Kids NEED to know their parents are in control. When that isn't clear, no amount of discipline in any form will be effective.

My daughter is 15 now. And now, she would FAR rather be spanked than hear a lecture from mom. :) But 10 years ago, talking rarely did any good. Over the years, different forms of discipline have yielded good results in various situations, and the effectiveness of the various forms has changed over time. And no two children are alike. I have friends with kids who are reduced to sobbing heaps just by a stern look...my kid was/is the kid who would give the look right back. It's all about first, being in control of yourself as parents, and second, knowing the individual needs of your child.

IT IS A CULTURAL THING. I REALLY STRUGGLE WITH IT BECAUSE I AM PART OF A GENERATION THAT WAS RAISED BEING SPANKED. HOWEVER, WE LIVE IN FEAR OF HUMAN SERVICES AND CHILD PROTECTION AGENCIES RIPPING OUR KIDS AWAY AND GIVING THEM TO STRANGERS. MY GENERATION IS THE FIRST IN MY CULTURE TO TRY THE NO SPANKING APPROACH SO UNIVERSALLY. WE HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH THE NO SPANKING METHOD AND MANY OF US HAVE WILD OUT OF CONTROL KIDS AND WE A RE STILL TO BLAME. WTF ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO? SORRY BUT I HAD TO VENT.

Karlita I don't think you have given enough details to make a judgement about you being an unfit mother. It seems like you need to try some different techniques though. Parenting is ugly. Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes. You can apologize as you go...hehe Try to exercise the child regulatory to the point of exhaustion.. make sure she has a somewhat fun daily routine and find ways to give her rewards for doing things right.. Seems like she will need lots of short term positive feedback and many different consequences for negative behavior. Don't keep dolling out the same punishment if it doesn't work. Find ways to be successful and keep putting all of your energy into making this a success.. You will get it..

I wish I had been that type of parent. I did the time out, talked about my feelings and their feeling, I give positive reinforcements and take things away when my son behaves badly. No matter what I do he still seems to misbehave in some environments. Especially, when a parent is not around.

Hello. I just have a big question! What do you do when a 4 year old doesn' t listen to you no matter what! We tried time outs, spanks, send her to her room etc. we have a 10 year old and a 1 year old. We don't know if is jealousy or what! We take her to the store, she play with every single objec t that she can find, we ask her to stop and she laughs she is always fighting with her oldest sister. Today I had it because I asked her several times to listen to me and she dind't I put her to bed and she just had horrible tantrums, I had to spank her like 10 times on her legs and butt! She was still acting horrible and I kept spanking her. Now she went to bed crying I feel horrible and I'm crying none stop since she went to bed :(. Please be honest, am I a horrible mom? After she get in troble she stop crying and always said "I'm ready" so I talk to her, next thing I know she is doing the same thing. Her oldest sister is a sweet heart, but we can tell she lost it with her!my husband doesn't know how to deal with her anymore. Please help me!!! Any ideas

I have 2 children - 13 yr. orld son and 16 yr. old daughter. Both are very well acquainted with the paddle and strap. I know in this day and age it's not the "right" way to handle children's disobedience but it has worked exceptionally well in our family. Disciplining them in this way only happens a couple of times a years, but, believe me it leaves a lasting impression, in more ways than one. My kids are well-adjusted, earn good grades, have many friends. They both know that when they break any of the rules of our household they can expect to be taken up to their room, put over their dad's knee and paddled or strapped until their bottoms are so sore that they can't sit comfortably for a few days. Believe me, we are not ogres, tyrants or child abusers. Just parents who expect our children to behave appropriately with respect.

I was spanked as a child and grew up knowing that there would be consequences for bad behavior.
On one occasion at the age of 8, I was outside using the worst expletives you can think of because I overheard some big girls who went to school with me (10-11 y .o.) using that language near me. I thought they were cool so I was in my front yard talking to my friends cussing up a storm., they were shocked and giggled. One of their mothers heard and told my mother. well Mom, Dad and I had a long discussion about using those types of words and I promised to never use them again. That lasted about 3 days and I tried it again but this time at school where a teacher over heard me. I was sent home and my mother had to take time off of work to be home with me on that day. My mother was livid, she sent me to my room to think about my actions and as i walked down the hall I said, "I didn't want to be at school today anyway", well that was the final insult to injury for Mom. She grabbed me by the arm pulled me over her lap and gave me at least 12 to 15 hard swats, my butt was burning for about 30 min. or so and I cried for about an hour, snot running ,couldn't catch my breath, bawling. I never doubted my mother loved me nor did I think that hitting was the way to solve bad behavior. I learned a lesson that day, I did stop all the cussing and being flip about my bad behavior to my parents and other adults. My lesson? Take a hint when you are reprimanded and get off easy, learn from your mistakes so you won't have to pay a much dearer cost if the infraction is repeated. This is a very good life lesson which I will definitely pass on to my child.
Mom who believes that sometimes spanking is absolutely necessary,

Absolutely Pro Spanking! Its the ONLY way i can get through to my youngest. I've tried the timeouts, taking things away, you name it i've tried it. Now if hes' doing something wrong all i have to say is do you want a spank and in your room? He says no and stops what he's doing. I shouldnt have to tell my child 3 times to stop doing something before he'll listen. Thats when spanking came in. You dont want to listen to me after i've told you time and time again to stop well then you get a spank on the bum. I have never ever hit him anywhere else it's always been on the bum. He knows when he gets a spank that i mean business. He hit me the other day during a temper tantrum because i had said no to him having a cookie before bed. He hit me so hard i had little red fingerprints on my leg. Did he get a spanking for that? Damn right he did and was put in his bedroom. After he calmed down i went in and talked to him and first thing he say is i promise mommy i will never hit you again. Did i get through to him? I sure did and thats what i wanted. Now that was his first spank in i'd say atleast 4 months because the spanking before that corrected his awful behaviour. I also dont just spank right off the bat..i give him a chance. I will always warn him that if he does it again he will get a spank. It's his choice from there. He can stop what hes doing and save the spank or he can keep doing it and he will get one. I was spanked as a kid and so were my 3 siblings. None of us are murderes..none of us ever got into trouble at school ..none of us ever fought. We knew mom was serious when we got a spank. Every child is different. My oldest spanking never worked on him so i stopped and used a different method of discipline. Putting him in his room worked great...where as my youngest he just thought it was a game putting him in his room. He'd run out laughing at me. Everyone disciplines their children differently but a spank on the bum has never hurt anyone. I dont care what anyone says. Because i got spanked i'm not going to think it's okay and beat someone else up. There's a difference between abuse. My children are FAR from abused. They get tons of loving..always get lots of hugs and kisses..and tons of i love you's. They arent the least bit scared of me they just know when they've done something wrong they will get in trouble for it and that is the way it should be. And it is actually legal to spank your child. It's in the Criminal Code of Canada...you are allowed from the age of 2-12 to spank on the bum with your hand and no object. Using an object (belt, spoons etc) is abuse. Whether thats on the bum or anywhere i dont agree with it at all. My child is far from traumatized for getting a spank on the bum thats for sure lol. If anything if i didnt do it i'd be the one traumatized from his behaviour.

Most people are pro spanking, but I am not. No need to hit. Just use your words. Would you like to be hit for your tantrums? None of us are perfect, right? Was I spanked? Yes. Am I OK? Sure. But could they have handled it better? Absolutely! Hitting is never okay.

You haven't talked to many old people Shell, have you? I have, my Gram lived to be 98 & all her siblings into their late 90's. Let me tell you, it wasn't a bed of roses, there were nasty, horrid kids then also, it just wasn't so televised, etc. You didn't *DESERVE* it! Your parents just didn't know any other way. It's okay, you're okay despite. I agree, there are a lot of entitled kids, that has nothing to do with spanking/not spanking, it has to do with not instilling a work ethic, and spoiling your kids.

Sarah, I too have never hit or spanked my kids. Let me tell you it was a lot of work, my daughter was a firecracker! They are so well behaved now, people compliment me all the time!!! I don't feel if I hit them that wouldn't have taught them right from wrong, but that if I'm frustrated it's okay to hit, or it's okay instead of using words & resolving issues, hit. I guess that's been my logic & it's worked so well. I'm so glad I've never hit or spanked my kids, I have nothing to feel bad about & I'm a very proud mom to have such responsible, kind & caring kids!

Whoa Alice.... who said ANY of us even come close to bruising a little behind with a flat handed smack???? I've never come even close to that. I'm sure many others don't either!

I stated: and it never leaves bruises. To clarify that when we spank we surely don't do it that hard for crying out loud! And as a "spanked" child I don't beat other people up or pick up guns to solve conflict?? I did excellent in school and college. I got great grades and have never been to jail. Sheesh, nobody would know I got spanked as a child. I deserved it. It was a last resort then but by golly did I DESERVE it! =)

And truthfully the world was a lot better place when our grandparents were kids and they were spanked. "get out of the freaking old age and raise your kids right" People in the old days did raise their kids right... children weren't having babies, kids didn't take guns to school and shoot each other, they didn't have to lock their doors, kids didn't get taken as often... It was a better time than we are raising our kids in. And I can't help but believe that a lot of it is parenting and children are growing up "entitled".

I surely am not saying ANY of you are bad parents or that parents who don't spank are wrong. Please don't take any of what I said personal, I kinda just got on a soap box myself! =)

[deleted account]

I am sorry that I am not coming off clearly to you. But I do understand and respect your opinion. I am not necessarily defending pro-spankers, but I am defending everyone's right to parent as they see fit in their own situation, with out undue ridicule from others. I'm that way when it comes to any social issue though, I'm always looking at both sides.

Well I think you are all nuts... I have 3 children...my oldest son is 9, my daughter is 7 and my youngest is 2. I have never spanked any of my children. Let me tell you I don't have to worry about them acting up either and they know who boss is. I was spanked as a child and felt the hatred and the fear that my parents enstowed in me. Do as I say cause I am boss or you get smacked. Wrong way to raise a child.....I enstow love and we use our words around here to get our points across. We communicate and if they do end up doing something, we talk about what the consequences are and go from there. I do not bestow the fear of hitting another child. Hands are not for hitting and neither are spoons, belts or whatever crazy things you guys think is ok.... Good god get out of the freaking old age and raise your kids right. Another thing I am a single mother of 3... My husband passes away so I am doing this on my own. It's not hard you just have to have a little bit more patients....

Still kind of dancing around the issue. Kristen I think you clearly come across as anti-spanking but seem to want to let others off the hook for their actions. I believe it was Shell who said their is a difference between spanking and hitting, that is a bit absurd. Using your hand or a weapon (belt, stick etc...) to connect with another persons body is hitting. To say a spanked child knows they are having a consequence for bad behavior indicates you would not be having a consequence if you angered me and I slugged you. You would not expect me to respond with my hands if you did something that displeased me. You would expect me to use words to solve conflict. So I am going to come right out and say it...if you use your hands to "discipline your child" your are teaching them brutality solves conflict. I live in a suburb of a major metropolitan area and believe me they have stopped using their hands and picked up guns. When a child is raised with any form of physical violence in the home it very often escalates from there. But please here me... I am not talking about your individual situation. I am speaking about the larger population that has to learn violence begets violence. I will now step off my soap box.

My parents spanked. There is a difference between hitting and spanking. A spanked child knows they are getting a consequence of their actions. My siblings and I never hit or beat other kids or our own kids. We do however spank. We don't hit. We spank bottoms. And we even spank bottoms affectionately from time to time =) It is not abuse, and it never leaves bruises. It is a way of getting an unruly child's attention. Spanking IS "a form of discipline just like time-out and other things". Kristen... you said it so well! I never was afraid of the person doing it either. I deserved and know that just as clearly now as I did then!!

[deleted account]

Well to answer your question more directly, yes, they do teach their children not to hit other children or others. I thought my post made that clear. I was trying to give you perspective of how I thought of it as a child. I never thought it was okay to hit someone because I felt like it or was angry, because I never got hit just because the adult felt like it or was angry. Like I said, I saw it as a form of discipline just like time-out and other things.

Kristen, may I say very politely you did not answer the question I proposed. Do parents who hit their children teach them that hitting others is wrong? I worked in a Domestic Violence Shelter and once witnessed a mom hitting her son for hitting another child and saying "you don't hit people" of course I had to respond to her in a professional manner because I was there to help her. But, I have wondered for years about how parents who hit their children can possibly try to teach a child you don't hit people, all the while hitting them...are these their precious children people too?. It is an honest question that I would truly like to hear someone tell me how they reconcile this.

[deleted account]

Alice: To respond to your question based on my personal experience: I was spanked as a child. So were the other children in my family. We didn't grow up trying to hit each other all the time because we got spanked. We didn't see it as "well they hit us, so its okay to hit others". No, we were taught to have respect for other people and their space. Spanking was something done for doing something out of line. We knew what we would get spanked for and what we wouldn't get spanked for. I got spanked with a belt, fly swatter, or "switch". I was never afraid of the person doing the spanking, but of course I didn't like it. Just like I didn't like other forms of punishment like time-out, getting things taken away, ect. What child does like not being able to get away with everything ;-)

For some reason the men in our family are often "babied", and I have a cousin who was spanked, and her little brother wasn't. Her brother was the one who was always trying to hit/kick/punch people. Not saying the spanking had anything to do with her not hitting, just giving an example.

I do think that if it is done improperly (such as abuse) or out of anger, than yes it could give the child the impression that the bigger person "wins" through force.

Do you parents who spank, also teach your children not to hit others? Just asking.

Here it is! Now with that being said, how about us not attacking each other on the form of discipline we choose and just work on uplifting each other as moms in general? How about not depending on society, books, and biased opinions to tell us what is right for our own children? Do what feels right for you and your child and leave it at that.

It just hurts my heart to see moms attack others intelligence and question their love for their children just because of how they raise them, whether they choose no punishment, time-out, spanking, or whatever. Being a mom has turned into a competition.

I am a pro spanking mom however I have limits and rules that help the situation stay under control. I give my children a warning the 123 but I never back down, I am consistent, if I get to three they get a spanking; most of the time by the time I get to 2 they have complied. I have a three lick rule that I don’t break regardless of the offense and it helps me keep a line drawn so I know I am disciplining not abusing my children. I have to admit I struggled with this in the beginning with my first child. When he was three he had hit his little sister in the head with a toy and I popped his butt and told him not to hit her. He looked at me and said, "Mommy you are not supposed to hit people." So I cringed...Was I reinforcing the behavior by spanking him? But as time went on I realized that there are times when spanking is needed to show I mean business. I am now a single mother of four and am proud to say my kids are well behaved. I use spanking when it is needed but I am not reluctant when it is.

YES. YES. YES. YES. YES. I am a pro spanking mom. I was spanked and I'm still alive, smart, happy and healthy. me and my kids' fathers have very bad tempers and are very stubborn and it really comes out in the kids to. and as a single mom of 3 who also babysits 4 other kids and all of them range from 1 to 6 years of age I need them to know that I am boss. I only spank my own but it shows the other that I do mean business and not to mess with me. As long as the line between discipline and abuse isn't crossed spank away.

i am a pro spanking mom, i am a single 23 yr old with 3 kids (2 boys nearly 6&7 1 girl 3) and i think if i didn't spank my child when they deserved it then my house would be a horrible place to live. the other day i was at the shops and my daughter threw a temper tantrum and through herself on the floor, i gave her to the count of 3 to get up and hold my hand or i was going to smack her bottom, i ended up having to smack her and i was abused by a lady telling me i was a horrible mother, yet on the other hand praised by an elderly lady saying it was good to see young mothers disciplining their children.. so i say "YES"

I am a pro spanking mom as well. I'm a single mother of two. I've got a 2 year old daughter who gets spanked when she needs to be. She knows when she does wrong so she needs a form of punishment that will show her that she's not in control and it will also keep her out of harms way. My other daughter is only 5 monthes so she has a while before she gets that sort of punishment. I'm glad that I'm not the only one out there that is a pro spanking mom. lol

Definetly a pro spanking mom!! It's biblical!! The bible says "spare the rod and spoil the child", now that doesn't mean beat your child til their near death (lol). My daughter is 10 now, but when she was a toddler I definetly popped her hands, or legs when she got out of control or disobeyed. Again I have to reference the bible, "Train up a child in the way he shall go, and when he is. old he shall not depart from it." With that said, I have spanked her in years. Now, all I have to do is raise my voice or use a certain tone and she gets right in line.

I'm definitely a pro spanking mom. My girls got it more than a few times when they were young, first with my hand and as they got older and still acted up the belt was used to teach them a lesson. Sure helped! they are happy and healthy young ladies now.

Hello!! Thank GOD you all are pro spanking moms as well. Kids today have no respect for authority and they are getting away with way too much. I have heard too many arguments that it hurts their self esteem but I don't agree. I was spanked (a lot) and my self esteem is fine. I spank my son when needed but I am honestly afraid to do so because people get too nosy and all it takes is one phone call. My son knows at home anything goes but out in public I am more reserved.
