when spanking for discipline do you put over your knee or how and bare bottom or not?

I spank over-the-knee with my hand on the bare bottom. My daughter hasn't needed to go there yet, but my son has had two sessions on the side of my bed. I think it makes perfect sense to spank on the bare. Why would I not wish to actually see what I was doing?

In both cases, I gave a dozen smacks (age X 2) from cheek to cheek, finishing with three down low where the bottom and legs come together. The spanking stings and reddens the bum, and the tears are real. But my son knew why I was spanking him, and the spankings he got taught him a lesson. If that isn't the object of the exercise, I don't know what is.

I'm a firm believer of spanking. That is what's wrong with kids now they don't get them anymore. My daughter will be 10 soon and I use a paddle like they have in schools, but not bare bottomed. I make her grab her ankles. She's too big to put over my knee. After a few of those, you won't have to use it any more just the threat of it works.

Sheila Jane you are dispicable...Making your 16 and 18 yr olds remove their skirts and panties and bend over a chair?! That is sexual assault and I hope one of them ours you and alerts CPS. I cannot even imagine the humiliation, resentment and shame they must feel. People like you absolutely make my blood run cold..

I am sorry but to the mom who makes her preteen grab her ankles then paddles her, what the hell is wrong with you!? Why would you er subject your child to such a degrading form of punishment at that age. There is a difference between your children respecting you and fearing or loathing you. I predict that your daughter will really resent you one day. I cannot even imagine...

Hi,i just want to say that all of you are totally messed up and that is what you will make your children. I am not a mother,i am in fact fifteen but i know alot better than all of you put together. You should never ever inflect pain on anyone especially your own child. You are teaching them that violence solves problems but it doesn't. It causes them. I'm a vegan and a pacifist. I am a non violent person. Your children will grow up hating you. Hitting kids causes fear and pain. Just an abortion .It will spare them the pain. My mum use to hit me and i wish she would die. She mentally scarred me and i will NEVER forgive her.

I've found that bending over a chair is good for a paddling but prefer my kids to lay on their beds for the belt. I don't take down their underwear until they are on there stomachs.Same way my step dad whipped me always bare but never seen my privates.

Because there seems to be a lot of confusion around Sarah with different views. Personally whilst I am not against spanking a child I don't think it should ever be done in the bare, especially not on a girl. Sometimes it affects a child's sexuality and so I think it is quite important.

I spanked one of my boys over the trousers only once and it did the trick. I didn't spank the other one. I couldn't see anything wrong with them so I wasn't a very good disciplinarian, even though I believed in it. Thank God they have both turned out well. They had a lot of love from us. Some have strong willed children who might well need more discipline than that. If you really love your child you will do it if it is needed. Who wants to see their children go astray.

If you are a pervert then obviously it will do a lot of damage.

Why do these spanking posts go on and on ......It isn't rocket science, it's beating your child. Why must you consult technique on a physical punishment? It's perverse. Naked or not, how old, how hard, how long, what weapon. Geez, if your gonna spank your kids, figure it out for yourself..

Spanking a child is a parents decision to make, however I would like to give you some information on spanking and how this can impact your child, so that you can make an educated decision on what is best for you child. Recent research shows that children who are spanked have increased grey matter in their brains which lowers their IQ, and is linked with increased aggression, violence, impulse control problems, and substance abuse over the span of their lifetime. Parents who spank are typically uneducated, and are of lower socioeconomic status. While I hear the argument all the time that "I was spanked and am fine," while this may be true, without spanking you could have been even better and smarter. As for its effectiveness, it is short term, because spanking does not deal with the "root cause" of the behavior, nor teach the child how to handle the situation differently. While other methods of discipline are just as effective, they do take more time to implement, and so many parents use spanking because they do not want to put effort into teaching, rather than controlling. I am sure we all love our children and want what is best for them, rather than what is easy or convenient for us, so I hope this information helps those who were unaware of the outcomes of spanking children.

You are probably right. Spanking virtual adults is probably not wise. There is an age where it should finish. In my family I put that about 8 or 9 yrs.

That is very sad but please don't transpose that onto to a healthy spanking. Your mother had a problem and passed it on. Now you see all discipline through those eyes which is unfortunate.

I think you have it all wrong. There should be a loving relationship between parent and child but there may be times discipline is needed up to a certain age. To deny parents that right is very shortsighted.

Yes we know about abuses but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

I don't know. I am aroused by being spanked and my wife has been comfortable with it for many years. It fits into our sex life quite well. She doesn't like it for herself though.

I was spanked on the bare bottom by my mother after I left work to attend college, ages 22 to 26 , bare with the cane in the "Assume the position "position for up to 24 strokes. Above that I was allowed underpants for up to 50 or sometimes more. It hurt like hell and was good at keeping me in line in my studies. Sitting down was another question!. Embarasing yes but valuable even more so. Mother kept this up until I left home at 32. I still think it was valuable!

Think about it from a trauma stand point, a strong person approaches you and orders you to remove your outer clothing and lay down, threatening you with harm if you don't do that. The person is the opposite gender. Now they start to forcefully remove your under garments and can visually up close view your genitals. The act is frightening, humiliating, and yet strangely you feel some weird pleasant feelings in your genital area involuntarily. This is a memory of trauma for what? Rape, incest, or a spanking? I suffered until mid life with a shameful masochistic fetish for this very ritualized act I remember from my childhood many times by my mother. I sought help to understand I was being sexually aroused by my mother but too young to know it at the time. I remember my last spankings in early teen ages being oddly attracted to the order of walking to my mother for a spanking and in therapy was helped to understand that subconsciously my mother may have been sexually gratified by this ritual of spanking I experienced, it was good for me and her. Also in therapy I started to have repressed trauma broken down and remembered rather than the dissociative erotic memories my mind had used to band aid over the real fear, and humiliation I experienced up to that time. According to my therapist the sexual arousal I was feeling is linked to feelings of being loved so I developed an attachment to desiring to be humiliated with forced exposure and spanking from a mother like figure. It complicated my marriage! I'm NOT alone in this one aspect of abuse from spanking, I'm sharing my story and that of the site owner in links for all here to study. The comments left are ALL volunteers sharing their same damage as I from childhood spanking. A spanking fetish very compulsive for one's entire life! http://www.child-abuse-effects.com/sexua... http://www.child-abuse-effects.com/can-c... Please mothers don't sexually abuse your children ignorantly!

I'm a married man with spouse and kids. Never spanked because I was sexually aroused by the undressing of pants and underwear ritually done for the preparation of spanking by my mother. I sought psychological treatment for a masochistic fetish with humiliation and spanking late in life, but I remember at age 9 my body being taken over feelings of being treated by an adult mother figure in fantasy that took over my mind and I act it out in private. I also was helped to grasp that my mother unconsciously also was suffering from this sort of sexual damage in sexually sadistic form and was sexually gratified secretly as she spanked me and my siblings in the ritual undressing and frontal partial nudity that occurred before the spanking. Mothers, please don't do this to your children! I hate my dead mother for the ritual humiliation, and sexual desire that haunts me yet today even though I'm age 55! Spanking is sexual abuse for some children and some mother's and father's are committing incest ignorantly with their children!

Sheila, you've been told: "spanking" (which is assault) an 18 Year old adult can get you charged with assault, or battery. Spanking a 16 yo is ineffective as well.

You need to learn how to handle your parenting in a more adult manner.

My daughters are 16 and 18.
I did put them over my knee for breaking curfew time a few weeks ago but my 16 year old daughter said after she felt she was going to fall.
She is taller than me and my 18 year old daughter.
If they need smacking again they will bend over a chair.
As soon as I tell them they are having their bottoms smacked they take their skirts and knickers off.

As a Psychology graduate I feel inclined to tell you that physical punishment is detrimental to a childs development. You are literally scarring your child mentally. I don't think this will make you stop, but think about what you are doing to your child and how it will effect them later in life, because beating and spanking only harm them and do not teach them a lesson.

Are you still defending your abuse of your child? methinks thou dost protest too much.

Since you continue to defend your statements, that tells me that you KNOW you could be applying other, more effective methods, but that you would rather just beat the boy.

Unfortunately, you must be in a place that does not advocate child protection, but encourages child abuse, many countries are still in that 'mode'.

I'm sorry for your son.

A spanking is 3-4 pops. Not 25 licks on a bare backside. That is beating. Any child advocate will tell you the difference. I got this guideline from my local law enforcement.

I do believe in spanking but I also believe there have to be limits and restrictions to this subject, both physically and emotionally. First off I will say I was spanked bare bottom until I was 16. It hurt, of course, but after a certain age it became emotionally hurtful. Humiliating. So I brought my 4 children up with the occasional spanking but NEVER bare bottom, and I NEVER did it out of anger or to embarrass them. I think that's the important factor in spankings. Its a punishment not a means to take your anger out on them for what they did wrong.
