Is it wrong to spank your kids
Most Helpful Guy
"I" personally believe that an adult, or grown person
never should raise a hand against a child, even as discipline.
A rule I often try to have parents remember, is that it's "never
the fault of the child, if something happens.
Accidents occur, and more often than not
it's the upbringing or surroundings that's to blame.
There're always other options as to what one can do
for instance, at my work there's this child who finds it funny
to hit the girls, so I excluded him a short while, from our playtime.
Telling/talking to them why what they do is wrong, is better than physically
harming them.. A burnt child does indeed dread the fire, but it will be the adult
they'll shun, and not their wrongdoing they'll fear, if they're hit.
"Spanking" is the easy way out, and by no means the better option.0

I don't think it's "wrong" per say but I do think it is lazy parenting. My parents didn't have to resort to physical violence to teach me a lesson. Not once was I spanked and I have a lot of respect for them so the whole "you need spanking to teach respect" thing is utter BS. Many parents nowadays don't spend enough time with their kids or practice inconsistent parenting habits then they wonder why their kids rebel or do irresponsible things.3
