Do you spank your kids, and i dont mean beating them, just a pat on the but if need be.

Yes it's ok and yes I do. I remember when I was a child, we would have lectures from my dad if we did something wrong, we sometimes got smacked. I think I preferred a smack!

I think spanking is something every parent should consider, even as a last resort. There are a lot worse ways to harm your children than a paddle on their butt.

Yes - I spank my children. I also use different means of discipline, but spanking is a part of my arsenal for major discipline problems.
