I Spank My KidsI do feel it is okay to spank your kids. I have a 16 year old son and a 9 year old daughter.
I use spanking as a last resort. We talk first, extra chores second, groundings third and then if those don't work I will spank their butts.
I spank my daughter with a open hand over my knee and my son is older and I will use a belt on him. Its not abuse, I have never left a bruise on them. They will cry, but that's it.
