Yes I will agree LIFE has no right or wrong answers BUT we must always keep in mind every action we take, every choice we make has its very own consequence. Better to be equiped with knowledge than ignorance. I was spanked as a child ( alot) and I can honestly say this has very bad consequences and I agree with this article. I even tried the whole spanking thing with my daughter once and I thought "this isnt right." So I looked into it and hey what do you know, nowhere does it say there are benefits except for other moms who dont see the negative effects now or yet. All they see (no offfense) is the satisfaction it gives them, because lets face it hitting when we're upset does feel good. But it should never be our kids. Let alone toddlers. I think the best way to do anything is to assess the situation, figure out why the child is acting up and simply fix it. It may be a harder way for some but hey whoever said child rearing wasnt work lied to you. Now this is not aimed at you, these are my thoughts on the matter and Ill leave it at that.

i dont see any harm in a smack on the bum as long as your telling your child why they r bein smacked and it is within reason , i know there are some kids out there that never get a smack and they dam well need one my children rarely get one but i tell them they will get one and thats usually enough to get them to behave , some parents do go over board too though i think its good to remind ourselves that they are still children and sometimes they drive us mad but its our job to show them right from wrong , our children usually learn their bad habits from us (parents in general)

because it teaches your children a violent response to their behavior, better to use time outs or take away things that they like. sometimes just not acting like their behavior is bothering you. kind of like ignoring them works, unless they are doing something that is dangerous to themselves or others. that is the only time i would spank my child but we are all different.
