Said By JaegoLooLooIt's WAAAAAY better than strapping with a belt.
Though, how you punish your children is really your business (kind of like, 'what you do in your bedroom is your business'). Unless it seriously physically or psychologically damages the kid, then something should be done. Spanking doesn't fit under the SERIOUS physical/mental harm category, just a red-ass-for-a-few-minutes category.
Said By icanflyouchLUm... Spanking hurts, I know that, but who in the right mind would want to hurt their kid. Most parents love their children unconditionally, right?
That made absoulutley no sense to me...
Said By JaegoLooLooA belt? Yeah, that's fucked up. Were you born in the thirties?
