Ideas on spanking

My husband believes in spanking children but i feel its both wrong and ineffective. I think a combination of redirection (for babies) or talking about the issue and giving time outs (for older kids) will teach them right from wrong and responsibility, whereas spanking only teaches them to try not to get caught. We were both brought up on spanking and both rebelled. As soon as theres no parent to spank them, they'll do whatever they want. What does anyone else thing about it?
