Was spanked on the arms, on the legs... Spanking is supposed to be done on the a**. This counts as abuse from a father with anger management problems. Siblings went through a lot worse.

No. Though my hair was twisted, and I was pushed around a bit.

Hey, me too!!

But as a child if I acted up I was asked calmly if I wanted to go have a 'private conversation' which meant, probably, that I was gonna get my ass beat. I don't recall ever getting hit anywhere but on my butt. But I probably got slapped once or twice for smarting off and probably deserved it.

Yes, but my parents made sure I understood why I was getting spanked. I see no problems with spanking so long as the child/ren understand why they're being spanked. I also had my stuff taken away sometimes, got grounded too other times.

I was spanked as a child, but only when I was misbehaving/doing something bad (and only after being warned multiple times). It was usually mom who spanked me. In fact, my dad (who is pretty lenient) only spanked me only two or three times ever (when I was behaving especially bad and mother wasn't around at that time to punish me). Also, I was only spanked on the butt and only hard enough to cause some mild pain/discomfort and some redness that would go away in 5 or 10 minutes. This is the proper way to spank a child. Doing otherwise (such as hitting other areas besides the butt and/or hitting hard enough to leave bruises) is not a spanking; it's abuse. I think the reason why spanking gets such a bad rap is because too many people don't do it correctly.

Anyways, once I started either middle school or junior high (I can't remember which), mom stopped spanking me. There were two reasons for this: 1.) I was at the age where she felt that spanking was no longer appropriate, and 2.) I had developed a high pain tolerance by then, so spanking no longer had much effect. Instead, mom used grounding (aka banning me from watching TV and playing video games) as my primary source of punishment.

Not reading the rest of the thread; short on time, and since this wasn't supposed to be a debate anyway, I'll just share my experiences:

I was spanked as a child. Not often, but it happened. I was also a spoiled child, largely on account of having been the second of three children, but my oldest brother died in an accident while he was three and I was just one. The youngest of us was my sister, and this led to everyone doting on us to the extreme. I'll also note that my family tends to have a nicely padded bottom, so said spanking didn't cause lasting injury. Far more traumatic was when a parent would instead yell at us. Effective - but rarely used - was in taking away toys or other entertainment. This was, however, difficult because - again - we were spoiled but our parents were busy.

Yes, I was spanked. It never made much sense to me as a child, and never really had any real lasting effect on how I or my siblings acted. Usually it was just because Mom or Dad had gotten so furious that this was the best way they felt to handle the situation.

That being said, I don't spank my child and I've found more creative (less anger induced) ways to handle bad behavior.
