There are no set rules with spanking. Some parents spank all the time, some feel any spanking is abuse. There is a pro-spanking community on this site you should look into if you want people more accepting of spanking. Otherwise, you may get a lot if people upset that you would consider spanking your child.
Personally, I was spanked as a child, and I'm not necessarily against it. I only have step-children, however, and have never spanked them. Their father has, though, and he's cut back on it over the last couple years. It tends to lose effectiveness if overused and/or as the child gets older. And I feel you should never spank with anything other then your hand. If you have to resort to using objects, then spanking doesn't work.
