Sometimes it does
I think it is appropriate until one is about 10/11.
no, those kids are so cute, i hate it when people hit them,
I do think it's right.
If the spanking is a disciplinary action or other, who is doing the spanking and who is getting spanked, how much force is used, and what type of emotion or attitude the spanker has during the time of the spanking.
The proper amount needed.
People have different strength, different techniques, different ways to go about it, and the age must also be put into perspective. So there is no general force for all spankings, this is something that only the spanker can ascertain in the moment.
