were you spanked as a child?
when i look at people my age, 20, i can easily pick out who was spanked when they were younger and who wasn't
after seeing the out come of that, i don't want my kids to grow up and be adults like the ones i know who admit they weren't spanked.
and yes, i do ask people.
i agree with mal, at a certain age you need to stop spanking your children and start to treat them like individuals who are becoming self aware, and can be taught things in a way that doesn't have to be immediate.
like groundings, the lesson is learned more sollidly the longer the child has to deal with not having what they want.
but i firmly believe what the bible says "spare the rod
hate your child"
that's right, not "spoil," "hate"
