What is your take on spanking a child?


Is it abuse or discipline? For those who agree with spanking your child, where do you draw the line?

    Spanking, when and if used, should never be to inflict pain though. Spanking or a slight smack on their hand should only be used to get their attention. Spanking in a way that is painful will only send them the wrong message.

    Spanking should only be to get a child's attention. Never to inflict pain on a child. We must find the appropriate punishment for the crime and issue the punishment in a way that lets the child know we also love them.
