Quoting mamaluvsher4babies:" I spank but didnt spank my son when he was teenager..my daughter is 11 last time she got spanked was when she was 7..I do believe in spanking..doesnt mean thats only punishment I use :)"


I dont think anyone uses spanking as their only form of disclipine. If someone did that would be considered abuse imo. I only spank my child(ren) as a last resort. Like if ive told my child not to do something and have grounded them and have taken away things and they still continue to do it, then i would spank

The point is, if your discipline techniques work, you don't have to worry as much once they get to that age.



My daughter is 16 years old and I've never had any major disciplinary issues with her at all.

When is hitting ever "appropriate"?

Spanking and hitting is different, imo.



Hitting a child open handed or/and with a belt,switch,etc is NOT okay nor apporpiate(imo) but I do spank open handed and on the butt only. Its not what I only do, but its what I do sometimes as a last resort and it works for me.

So, if your child hit someone with an open hand on their bottom because they didn't like what they did, would that not be inappropriate?

And you're going to spank your 14 or 15 year old? lol. I don't do timeouts or shaming or spanking. I teach personal responsibility and inner discipline.

Doesn't seem very effective then.

My children know that ONLY an adult is allowed to spank and that if a child ever does anything wrong to them, they are to tell an adult and the adult will handle it. What I do works for me , I rarely have a problem or have to resort to spanking.

That is horrible.



Imagine being a child and knowing that just because you are a kid an adult believes they have the right to hit you.

In what situation would you need to use your hand against a teenager?

Its spank not hit.
Its one of the methods I rarely use but will use if needed. I do what works for me , you do what works for you.
