No... I used to spank until I realized how stupid it is. Even if I were to still be a spanker... my youngest is 8, so is too old.

Who's business is it?

If you DO spank your kids, and they are older than...oh, say...3 years old, you are assaulting another human, and can possibly be prosecuted depending on where you live.

Spanking is only effective under 3, on a clothed/diapered bottom, and only 2 or maybe 3 swats to get attention. Example: Child running into street. a pop on the butt gets his attention so you can reinforce the verbal 'NO RUNNING INTO STREET' directive. Once that child is able to communicate and understand their native language, spanking/assaulting/beating your kid is NOT ok.

Why is it so friggin hard to understand?

Why are you choosing to ask this question? You have to know the issue creates controversy, so what is your purpose?
