Do you think children should get spanked or hit on the bottom if they do something wrong?

I spank my kids. I think this is totally a view of what the parent thinks. As long as they are not being beat. An occasional spanking for doing something extreamly wrong I think is ok. But to each his own.

Yes, that's the only way some kids can learn.

No, because spanking your children often leads to emotional trauma, thus making your children display poor behavioral traits such as a low self-esteem, poor social skills, poor academic performance, and in some cases a tendency towards violence.

not spank them hard but yes you need to be firm and instill a bit of fear. as they say spare the rod and spoil the child.
