Is it still common to spank?
I don't have children, but I have two nephews. My sister gave them a few taps when they were younger. But it's very easy to hurt a child or abuse using spanking. It ought to be a rare thing and for their safety.

okay, I can understand that.
But what I don't understand is why you keep asking if there is anyone who wants to talk about this...... people keep answering giving their opinions and you keep asking as though no one has replied.
:unsure:
Is there something more specific to the subject that you want to discuss, or are you just putting a feel out there for what might be considered "normal"?

Spanking spanking spanking. Spanking brings intelligence. Not past age 7 though - after that a look is enough. And, most important, after a spanking, hug the child and let them know you still love them.

I quit spanking my son at about 7 or 8. You can tell when they are too old for it.

My kids are almost 4 and 6 and I don't spank them. My mother was raised in an abusive home and never spanked me or my brother and she still managed to have good control of us. I'm still a bit scared of her, actually! That look!

As for our kids, they have positive and negative consequences such as not being able to do certain things like watch tv or play with a toy. We discuss things a lot and talk about everything in a frank but age appropriate way. I also make sure that I set a good example for my children, and walk out my life in a way I want them to see and copy.

The most important thing is their relationship with us, their parents, and for us to be very strong, confident and loving leaders. Janet Lansbury is a fantastic resource, and although she is secular, her approach is fresh and she thinks about the person of the child, not just how to controls kid.

I am an early years teacher and have taught children with such serious emotional andbehavipural difficulties that they have been excluded from school. These kids were something else: violent and full of hate and rage. Obviously in my job I couldnt spank them, but I was well trained in showing love and strong boundaries and that was enough. If it was enough to guide these poor kids, it's more than sufficient to raise my own kids.
