    I think spanking should be done with a cool head and in conjuction with some sort of verbal communication away from the event or limited at the event.


    I think the priority should be to have a relationship where spanking is absent most of the child life and they only think it might happen. I would not want to teach a child that hitting them is the only choice or they are not worth my words.

    I think you tap babies and toddlers. Never beat anybody. If you consistantly discipline your child you will almost never need to spank them. To avoid spanking one should stay as a constant presence in your childs life or else you will be forced to spank them cause you do not know them and you do not have time to do anything else

    Caution does spanking without discipline encourage someone to not identify what an abusor looks like and that if a man or woman lay their hand on me they must loves me

    I've always thought this. Some stranger may hit them but he/she won't take the time to teach them right from wrong through reasoning. Hitting someone is hitting someone regardless of the intention.

    I don't want my children to worry about physical confrontation from strangers, let alone family members. There are other forms of discipline.
