Do u think it's ok for parents to spank there kids and if yes what age do u stop
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.
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.

Spanking as a form of disciplineThe are many parents who believe that corporal punishment is necessary for successful child rearing. Is that true? Or is spanking another form of child abuse?
