Re: Spanking your kids?
Your question assumes that at some point it was a good form of discipline. You need to clarify, what do you mean to ask? What do you mean by "good?"
"Is spanking a viable/acceptable form of discipline?"
"Was spanking ever a viable/acceptable form of discipline?"
I thinking spanking has its place, so long as the child understands why they are being spanked. Spanking your child and saying they're not supposed to do something "because I said so" or giving no reason at all isn't discipline, it's abuse.
