    You can spank them alright...

    all they're doing is redefining "abuse", and imposing a new definition of "spanking". A light tap on the right buttock should suffice.

    When I have kids, no one is going to tell me that I can't spank my child.

    It teaches them discipline.

    I don't know if I'd spank a 15-year-old but if that's what needed to be done, fine.

    I
    have
    never
    been
    spanked.

    Nor grounded.

    I was simply taught right from wrong and allowed to make mistakes. At which point id have to face my moms disapointment, which is punishment enough.

    Point is... I didn't turn out a total screw up....

    spanking gets their attention.

    consistent parenting and responsibility teaches them discipline.

    The Obama administration has flagged this post.

    Please stand-by while we infiltrate your house and place drugs and weapons inside, call you a terrorist, refuse to torture you, and kick your dog and to wrap it up: somehow blame it on Bush.

    Thank you.

    That's true but I think it teaches discipline in the sense that if you do it, your child is going to know not to act up. Discipline as in knowing how to behave.

    We'll see once I have kids though.

    When I said something wrong, my mom whooped my a**.

    When I did something wrong, my mom whooped my a**.

    And I damn sure deserved every one of those whoopings and they made me a better person.

    You can wear your kids' lil butts out, but if you don't reinforce that you love them and that the behavior is wrong, they will not develop SELF discipline either, that is, making the right decisions when you are not around. Spanking is simply the attention getter, where a lot of parents fail is teaching the child( and loving him/ her) after the fact.

    One thing I want to emphasize, spanking in our house is NEVER done in anger. I will not touch the kids until I have cooled off. there's a difference in punishment/ spanking and just relieving a little stress on their buttocks.

    Yeah, my parents allowed/have allowed me to make my own decisions and learn from the consequences of them and without a doubt that has helped me tremendously. We were only spanked until we were about five. And it was never ever ever done out of anger. My dad did the spanking and he has a long fuse to begin with, so it never reached that. We'd get spanked for talking back, that's about it. We were really good kids actually.

    Considering my parents have a 31, 30, 18, 17 and 14 year old... and all of us (minus some stuff my brother has done) have done rather well for ourselves... I think my parents did everything right and are still doing things right. I hope I turn out to be half as good at parenting as they are. I have all the respect in the world for them and everything they taught/are teaching me and my siblings.

    It appears that she bruised her... unless I am reading the article wrong. So you can't beat your kids, but you may still spank them.

    It never said the bruise was acquired through the beating. When I was 15, I never went a day without bruising. And that was between 1-7 years ago.

    I am willing to bet that when you were 15 you were not a 15 year old girl.

    I don't know what happened and likely never will but I do know that my parents hit me on my *** with a belt and spanked me numerous times when I was a kid and never once was there a bruise.

    I got my A@@ beat on numerous occasions... I was a hot head when I was kid... my whuppins usually came after a baseball game... in the 9-11 range... I had this little tendency of telling the umpire that I could do his job much better than he could... I was thrown out of 4 games... my mom would grab my ear and drag me all the way to car and I'd have to wait for my dad to get home to get my spanking... he had to finish coaching the game... he was always my coach... I learned from my mistakes
