spanking is a technique parents used. they spank their children without thinking. i dont agree with that, in the end the child might be rebellious and feeling of hate might occur.

There are times when spanking is appropriate, but shouldn't be the only means of discipline. Spanking them without thinking is just abusive, spanking them as a form of discipline is not. I got my fair share of spankings when I grew up, and I turned out just fine.

If i become a parent, i will not practice that way again as that was my parent way as a discipline. I don't want repetition and it can hurt emotionally and physically and i am lazy to do that if ever my child made mistakes and wrong things that against me. You can still have other ways. talking to the child to make them realize what mistakes they have done. Spanking them do not make them to change. There are those who change but others still remain and they do not care if parent will spank them or not.
