Should a father spank his teenage child for making her step-mother mad?


I know a 13 year old girl who's father spanked her with a belt for making her step-mother angry, and then told her that every time that the step-mother informed him that the girl had made her mad, he was going to do it again.

    Spanking should never leave a mark on a child. It would take a big whack for to leave a mark, and if that's the case then it is being used inappropriately and the parent should offer the child an apology.

    It will be VERY COUNTER-productive and induce much anger. I know, as I treated such children for over 25 years as a Psychotherapist and Marriage & Family Therapist. Spanking shows lack of good parenting skills.

    You hit a very good point! Before issuing the discipline, a parent has to step back and ask himself, "what does my child NEED?" We must convey love to a child through eye and physical contact, and focused attention before we turn to discipline.

    I could not disagree with you more. I never spanked my six children and they are FAR from "undisciplined and disrespectful." All are very mature, productive citizens with good jobs, and show respect to all. A parent who inflicts pain lacks skills.

    The only problem I see with this approach is toddlers do not understand an deep discussions. Spanking should be used to get the child's attention, not to inflict pain. Therefore, it is essential that a parent is not angry when issuing a spanking.
