I have twin 14 year old daughters who receive the paddle from there stepdad or I about once a month. I know my best friend still paddles her 14 year old son. Are we in the majority of minority.

Janice, with a young child a hand to the clothed butt is all it takes to correct behaviour. It doesn't inflict pain, it's more just the shock of it.
These women are condoning using implements to assault their teenage children. There is a big difference.

The definition of assault:
" v. the threat or attempt to strike another, whether successful or not, provided the target is aware of the danger."

You didn't really answer my point about the hypocrisy in it being illegal to hit an adult but not your children. You wrote about corporal punishment but adults are assaulted for no reason sometimes, why shouldn't the offender be charged with a criminal offence? You think a speeding fine warrants a spanking? Bet you she won't care about it when she's out of your clutches, her bank account will and also if she loses her licence.
TBH, I don't care what you do behind closed doors but when people post and brag about beating their children, I am upset for the children.
Assault is assault and the fact that you brag that you assault your children is sick. Using an implement is not necessary and hitting your teenage children doesn't work. It works to correct young children but teens need guidance to help them make the correct decisions in the future. What does giving them a belting teach them? A few minutes of pain and they will do it again.

Well considering a lot of countries have banned it and the parents can be charged with abuse, I think those that spank as their only means of discipline need to learn new methods.
Why is it okay for a parent to hit a child (with or without an implement) when it they hit an adult they will be charged with assault? Why should we encourage abuse of our children when we don't stand for it as an adult?
I find those that spank are hypocrites as they wouldn't stand for someone spanking them.

I don't spank my children and I have 2 very respectful and well behaved teenage boys.
Don't say that spanking is the only way to raise respectful children.
My boys know what I expect in my house and I haven't have to enforce any consequences to them for a long time. Their teachers and my friends always comment on how well mannered my children are.
It takes more work to raise children without spanking and I guess it's the easy way of discipline instead of working with the child to change their behaviour and teach them to make the right choices in life.
My children respect me and don't fear me.

I agree with Dove, those parents that choose to abuse their children are in the minority. Thankfully.
I suggest you actually learn how to parent effectively and stop abusing your poor children. Maybe they will realize what you are doing and have you charged, that would be great for them.
