My parents spanked me a few times when I was younger. I haven't got a spanking since I was like nine, I am fourteen currently. I think that parents should spank there children, when my parents ground me and stuff...it doesn't get the message across. But if they took a belt and spanked me, it would. One of my brothers in five years younger then me, so since my parents stopped spanking me when I was nine… he was only four. He is extremely disrespectful, rude, doesn't do his housework, needs mom to do his homework with him (she basically does it all), he walks all over her, is always on TV, doesn’t help out...etc. When I was his age it was a whip on the butt. You see, there comes appoint where it is discipline and abuse. If you are getting spanked on the butt after doing something wrong, that isn't abuse unless they do it for hours. You can notice how more responsible, respectful, polite and mature I was compared to how my brother is...I think the statistics speak for themselves.
I am only fourteen years old, (I am a virgin) but when I am about twenty-six I want to start having my family...I want about five children. (Two- Five Children is what I say though!) I will discipline my children more then my parents disciplined me, I have to show my children that I'M THE ONE IN CHARGE...so I most likely will spank. I don't see anything wrong with it, that's my perspective anyway. I would always be scared to do something bad when my parents spanked me, so I would always be well behaved. Families I know that spank their children have more well behaved and polite children. Are great-grandparents and grandparents were spanked and look at how proper they are…taking away spanking is making society what it is today. The little five-year old screaming and crying at the grocery store because she wants cookies really should get a whip on the butt but she is getting cookies. Children are not going to be as independent as the use to be. If you love your child enough, you could discipline them. It’s just like everything else, sucks at the beginning but they appreciate it in the end. =]
