Is spanking children the best way of implementing discipline?
The old way of thinking included spanking, but we know so much more today and it effects are to some children emotionally damaging even when done in a none physical damaging way. It produces fear and that is the last thing we want our children to do is fear us. Yes I did spank my children but my children do not spank theirs and are effective parents .
No; pretty much all the data we have by experts agrees on one thing: spanking is the least effective form of discipline, and more likely to cause other problems (like aggression and mental health issues).
We're a civilized society. We can raise our kids in a civilized manner if we so choose. 35 countries have outlawed corporal punishment, I fail to understand why we don't.
There's a fine line between spanking and domestic violence sometimes, and by not taking a stand to outlaw corporal punishment we are leaving that line very blurred.
There is a difference between spanking a child and abusing them.
If a parent is able to find that line of difference, (through the use of common sense...), I dont see much wrong with spanking when absolutely needed. Had half the jerkwads in my classes during my last year of highschool been spanked growing up, they probably would not have been utter douchebags.

If your child does something wrong like hit you because you have not given in to his tantrum, what would you do? I have sometimes given a smack on his back for misbehavior.. is it fine or am i being a bad parent?
