Yep. Is it wrong? I would say its situational. Spanking a child that is confused/ emotional is only going to increase confusion/ emotion. While spanking a child who is deliberatly doing something wrong is fine. Some times I was spanked for things things I couldn't do anything about. If I can't spell something after writing it 5o times It's probably not that I just don't want to spell it. On the spelling side It sounds like I'm complaining I'm realy not. They tried all they could. I had tooters, took special classes, If anyone should be able to spell something should be me. The end product is I just can't not that I didn't try. Not that i didn't / don't want to I simply lack the capacity. I wonder if something is wrong with that part of my brain.

Yeah I dont like hitting kids in the face. The butt is a giant shock absorber so its more the shock of being spanked than anything. Also you can't cause major injury accidentally with the butt.

I had a babysitter who would send me out into the woods to get my own "spanking switch" (a branch of a small tree).
After a few times, I ended up getting two - one for me and one for her. I'd get the big one and hit her with it before she would hit me.
She told my mother, who then flipped out because she was anti-spanking, to begin with. (mind you, I had my computer, video games, and reading rights taken from me when this happened).

My half-sister's father used to beat the unholy hell out of me - but that wasn't necessarily spanking.
When it came to discipline, spankings only encouraged me to resort to returning them in some way. Taking things away from me devastated me and taught me to behave.

Belts, dish soap two forms of punishment used by both parents I think the soap was the worst because when you went to rinse it out
it would foam up and become worse! Also, being the eldest of 5 children i was like the test child well let's just say
I got why they did what they did and i turned out ok.

Yes I was. Raised in a heavy conservative household and that seems to be the par for households like that.

I personally have seen households that take the time to discuss issues instead of reacting with authority all the time and I think that there is something to be said for people who do this. In my opinion it ends with a kid who is better off if they aren't taking advantage of it. When it comes down to it you still have to be in control of your child.

Yes, I was spanked quite a number of times. I quickly learned how to nullify the pain. After that point, whether I was spanked by hand, belt, or (most often) paddle, I didn't feel it at all. I understood what they were trying to drive at, though.

Yes, I've always gotten spanked on my bottom or across my head when I was misbehaving, but only from my mother. My father never touched me...However sometimes my mother would be frustrated, upset, or depressed and would hit me for no reason. At the time, I thought I did something wrong though.
