I spank. I get lots of compliments from people who are always telling me how well my daughter behaves, too. She listens very, very well. I'm quite proud of my parenting thus far!



ETA: Although I try to do other things and not just jump to spanking. I tell her no, then time out, and spanking is the last result. She usually listens when I first tell her no though. Time outs & spankings aren't usually needed.

I don't spank, and get the same compliments.

I don't spank. I'm not saying its abuse but I was abused as a child and refuse to do that to my children! My parents took it too far. Smacking real hard excessively etc...

Good for you. We all parent differently. I'm not saying that kids who aren't spanked are horrible kids, I'm just saying that's what works for my daughter.

I couldn't image spanking my sweet innocent toddler :(




I am not completely opposed to spanking, but universal spanking for every infraction is not effective and will eventually loose it's ability to warrant results.

Well, they aren't always sweet lol I never spank out of anger or over do it. Just 1-2 quick pops when it's really needed. *shrugs* no big deal to me.

Once again, never said kids who aren't spanked are horrible kids.



Different things work for different kids. Each to their own.

I don't spank. I don't make it an option for myself so I have never done it.

Exactly this. Spanking may not work with every child but it does for mine. (My oldest). No matter where we go/who we are around, everyone is amazed at how well me 3 yr old and 1 1/2 yr old behave.

Then I'd stop spanking altogether and try a different method of discipline.

I couldn't imagine hitting or "popping" Elliot, I'm not saying you're a bad parent or anything. I could just never do it
