I think a spanking can be effective in certain situations. Typicaly as a father I use the "disapointed in you" look and speech and it seems to work much of the time. I lavish heaps of love on my daughter though so if I suddenly stop and act disapointed in her it tends to make an impression. Generaly anything that's going to leave a physical or long lasting phsycological mark is bad imho.

Yes. Studies show that smacking your kids causes them to be more obedient. People need to learn how to use methods to help your child grow up properly. It's perfectly viable and if it works then your child will learn not to do certain things. How else will they learn?

Yeah I agree with it. Parents disciplined me when I was a kid and I think I grew up better because of it. Think we have a growing crime rate in America because parents disciplining their children is being more and more frowned upon. Give parents the right to discipline their children WHEN IT'S APPROPRIATE and everything would improve. I'm sure of it.

I have no qualms with spanking. I was spanked with belts and I came out just fine. I believe that pain is the best lesson in life. If you feel pain you will want to avoid any such situation were pain can be induced. Spanking for misbehaving (on a level appropriate to merit a spanking) is acceptable. I am not saying beating is okay, leaving bruises or cuts is completely unacceptable; but straight up spanking with the hand is fine. I'd much rather my children only received a punishment from me than a punishment from the government (i.e. jail time).

Someone commented that the issue is in the parenting not in the child. Problem children are because of a lack of discipline. I am not saying that spanking is the answer every time but punishments are a necessary tool for parents to raise their children. Of course bigger punishments for bigger offenses, but always merit out just punishment and don't abuse power.

Just don't spank them when they're too young. Studies show that this and childhood trauma in general causes decreased IQ in later years.

I think there are other ways to form habits and character than "spanking" them. Figure out how to give them proper cues to go through certain routines.

EDIT: Funny how everyone who has posted here stating that they're fine with corporal punishment is getting reported. Because, you know, having that opinion is a reportable offense, right? Also kind of funny to note that those who were punished physically as children more often don't care, whereas those who weren't more often do care. Not 100% on either side, but in majority


This is one of the main reasons why some people are afraid of speaking their owns minds.

It looks like some people here are confusing discipline/punishment with physical injuries. I don't think anybody has said that children shouldn't be disciplined. Whether or not physical attacks is an appropriate form of discipline is another story.

To discipline children? Never. That's just lack of creativity.

Disciplining adults though? Hmmm.. Well, Singapore DOES have an incredibly low crime rate.

I'm not all that experienced, only being 14 and all, but I don't like it. When I'm a parent in the far future, I wouldn't want to hit my kids to punish them. Chances are, the moment they are doing whatever bad thing, I'm going to be angry. And I don't want to hit my kid while I'm angry,
because I wouldn't be thinking about whether it would solve anything or not.

Then again, if your kid is a huge troublemaker and you've tried everything else, I guess you'll have to try "corporal punishment" at some point.

My parents spanked and pinched me and my siblings, which sucked, but I feel like all it did was make us have a (healthy?) fear of our parents. I don't really think it made me that much of a better person.

You need to feel ashamed of yourself of what you just said.


No, studies show that spanking turns people, children and pets, etc.. into criminals


No, don't give parents the right to threaten children. We are giving you freedom from demonic abuse such as spanking.

Most people who are hit as a child are black/African American or European/white.

Slavery, the switches, belts, whips, etc, were how slaves were trained and put into submission. When they mis behaved, they got beat, not spanked(unless the handler was into that kinda thing), but beat, that's why parents use belts, switches, and the like is because it was passed down through slavery.

Violence is popular among black populations, they are particularly comfortable inflicting harm on their young, they are the most violent population in the United States, whites being the 2nd most abusive. They go for the world as well.

Hispanics can be violent as well, but it's a lower chance than a black or a white.

I'm Korean and so is one of my younger sisters, other than our deranged, pedo-father, we haven't really been hurt by relatives. But the youngest is European/Black mix and she got beat up far more often.

Other animals don't a habit of beating up their own, but those that do, only do so because it was done to them = slavery.

Moral of the story? Well, it depends, if you're a handler or a parent.

I don't have any kids, but I don't attack anyone, ever.



Dude, what? Keep race out of this. Who the hell cares. If you beat your kid you beat your kid. Race doesn't matter in the slightest. Just the fact that you brought race into the conversation boggles my mind.

Did you want to get into that sort of conversation or something? The fact is, every race can, and has been equally as violent. lol you saying that "child beatings" got passed down through slavery.....what? Uhhhh, people were beating their children LONG before slavery. Every race. And then you go off and say some shit like "they are the most violent race in the united states".

Who fucking cares.

by the way, Even if you were right, you're making blacks seem like the bad guys when it was the whites who showed them that way of life in the first place.



I never mentioned a race other than human, that's what they self identify as, if you have a problem with how the world is, than leave it. Otherwise, be silent. If you want to beat up someone smaller than you, than you're going to do that.

This post only serves as the educational foundation for why child beaters are slave holder.

Parent: "How do I discipline my child? Hmm... I think hitting them is a good idea, after all, that's what MY parents did! So I must continue the tradition!"

But of course, slavery has nothing to do with beating people on a lower status than you. Nothing at all.

Beating your wife is bad, but beating children is perfectly fine. But nope, this has nothing to do with history or heritage. We just wake up with the urge to beat children senseless, but hitting an adult is a no-no.

I don't really care if people can't take the fact that African-American and Whites are statistically the most violent. They are, because they chose to be violent.

Deal with it.

No, no, no. Listen. Spanking, even with belts, is demonic abuse. Why isn't everybody realizing the obvious demonic abuse such as belt-spanking?
