It goes both ways. There are also lazy parents who spank and think that is all they need to do, so they spank for everything or whatever.



I know a mother who has literally said, "I give my son anything he wants, he never throws a tantrum...so, we don't have to discipline." I do think that is a dangerous path to take, and I feel for her child who will grow up to expect those kinds of things to be handed to him.

Our oldest is now three years old. I have been told before on here how she is going to end up in jail because we don't spank. Spanking is not the only kind of discipline nor is it superior over all other forms of discipline.



We do discipline to teach and guide our daughter. If she is throwing tantrum over something I told her she couldn't have or do, then we let her cool off. After she is calmer, I or my husband get down at her level and talk calmly. We discuss her feelings as well as why she couldn't have or shouldn't do the behavior she is being disciplined for. We allow her to talk to us about it too. Then we give her a hug and we go on with our day.

I guess I don't have that specific problem because ours is mounted to the wall pretty high but both kids have tried to climb the bookshelves and grab picture frames. We redirect. They don't do it anymore.

Right. Because of lack of discipline. Not lack of spanking.

Anyway, I thought the point of spanking was to get a kids attention... Not to hurt them. Am I missing somethign??

I can't wait to anchor ours to the wall! If we buy this house we're doing exactly that first thing.

We anchor everything to the wall. Our TV, the TV stand, the wall unit, dressers.

Whoa there..
I give a swat as a last resort when necessary but I'm not going around "whipping ass" all day...
I don't know where you're seeing all these terrible children at but I see a lot of polite well-mannered ones as well. There will always be good and bad and you can't always blame discipline for it.

Depends on the spanker. I've heard it's only to get attention from some, but some have also told me it won't work unless it hurts. One parent even went as far as to say has to leave a mark, and kid crying to work..
