    I personally do not believe in spanking.  I was spanked as a child and all it really did was make me fearful of being hit.  I've always spoken at length with my children as to why things should be done a certain way and have never had to use spanking as method of discipline.

    Darell-

    Spanking, hitting, twisting, pinching, slapping, shaking and slugging are all just violence.  Do you really want to teach your children  that that's the  way people interact?  Do you really want your child to be afraid of you?

    There are much better and more effective ways to teach proper behavior.

    No we did not spank our children.  I cannot get over the concept that some parents think they have to cause pain to their child to get them to behave.  I just don't think it is necessary. We raised two lovely daughters who are productive, happy adults so it can be done.
