Do you spank?

As a child my brother and I were spanked.  We weren’t beaten, but we were spanked.

I don’t believe it effected me in a negative way.  I wasn’t ever a kid to hit other kids.  I never got into physical fights. I definitely wasn’t a bully.  I did however fear getting spanked and that helped me make the “right” decision many times.

I’ve read a number of studies out there that say parents should not spank their kids.


So what do you think?

I definitely have my personal opinions about this one. While we aren’t a family that make spanking a regular punishment, Ellie has been swatted on the bottom before.

There’s a thought out there that kids shouldn’t fear their parents.

What do you think?
