I got swatted on the butt once when I was like two, because I wouldn't stop crying :P I don't really feel it was justified, because I was too young to really use the logic my dad was telling me, but it didn't scar me or anything. Generally, I've been a good kid, though that kind of makes it more infuriating, because now that I'm a teenager my dad expects me to be up to shenanigans, because he "remembers what he was like at my age." Yeah, and he also was troubled, and grew up in a small town where he had to make up his own entertainment.

I remember once on a different site some guy talking about how awful he felt because he spanked his daughter after she ran out into the street after he repeatedly told her not to, and people were getting on his case about the spanking. as far as I'm concerned, if the choice is between having to spank my kid or them risking getting hit by a car, I'll pick spanking >_<

Yeah, I don't like the fact that people can't punish their kids by coropral methods like before. I'm not saying hit them all the time but if they do something really bad they should get a smack, they will always remember it that way. The key is balance. My mum used to hit me when I was a child and I always remember those lessons. Now that me and my sister are older, we see my mum more as a friend but at the same time, we respect her for her disciplining. Kids these days don't respect their parents, they're mostly bratty and demanding, their parents can't even yell at them! One good smack is all they need XD

Man, I sounded old!

my mother once spanked me with a ceramic ping pong paddle and hit me so hard that it broke. I then tried to outsmart her and put books in the back of my pants. She didnt notice it was back there until I started fake crying and then laughing lol boy after that my butt was so red and sore I couldnt sit down for like a week lol there is total difference between a brat and a child like my son who is autistic and off in his on lil world. Yes he screams in public and never sits still, however, he never swears at me or intentionally acts unruly. My mother may have been hard with the displine but I truly respect her now and I deeply love her.

You can be friends with your children when they're grown up. My dad was in the Marines and he treated us like we were his recruits or something. lol He was like a drill instructor.

There's a difference between spanking and beating the living snot out of your kid...a quick one on the hand or the bum is good enough to teach a kid, XD!
