It's the same thing.

Spanking = hitting.



When is it ever "needed"?

Again, spanking and hitting is different in my view.



Its used when other methods fail, and the act/behavior continues.

You're using your hand to make an impact against something else. It's hitting.

Well your opinion doesn't change what it is. To hit is to make an impact against something else. That's what your hand is doing against your child. It's hitting.

lol, okay.



Agreed to disagree. I'll do what works for me. Obviously I am doing a-ok bc my 5 and 6 yr old are very well behaved to where a spanking is rarely used. Sometimes all I have to do is sound very serious and they are quick to get back in line, however if the behavior/act continues... I will spank and almost never have that certain problem again.



You don't agree and that's fine.

I didn't say anything about how your children behave. :? I said it's hitting. It is. We don't have to agree because that's what it is, you don't just get to change the definition because you have a hangup over the word "hit".

Okay.
I still view it as spank, not hit.

View it however you want, it doesn't change what it is.

What act/behaviours warrant "spanking"?

There are several parenting books you can read about alternatives to spanking.
