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.

Quoting speaktruth2powr:" 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?"


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.

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".
