Do you believe that spanking (not beating) a child damages him or her permanently?

    Do you get negative put downs at work for constantly screwing up. I believe you would or should be fired. Well, you have to teach your children there is a consequence for their actions early on, say 5+, and they might have a chance in a crazy world.

    Dr. Spock was not a proponent of spanking. His son committed suicide. What does THAT tell you?

    What you are talking about here is child abuse, not spanking. To me a spanking is a light tap on the behind for a young child. Your description goes much farther than that. Sorry this happened to you.

    Yea, have their peers make fun of them and bully them. That will have a great effect on them. Your damn right , you are more powerful than them. They have to learn respect. No one teaches that now. If they respect themselves they will respect others.

    I always hear the "kids today..." argument but please, give us some examples of how "kids today" are so much worse than past generations and how you can be sure it's because they haven't been smacked.

    Yes b/c there's nothing in between smacking a kid & rewarding them for bad behaviour. Come on, use your brain. Seems some ppl can't be bothered to figure out a better form of discipline.

    Would you hit your spouse? Why's it okay to hit your kid?

    If you leave a mark once do you think they might use their head next time instead of pleasing their peers? That mark is going to embarrass them for being hard headed.

    The fact that you have no children says it all. Children need (and want) discipline, be it a smack on the but or a time out. It shows them that their parents care enough to want to teach them how to behave.
