While reading in my newest edition of Parenting, I came across this letter to the editor:

"Calling spanking "hitting" is like saying that surgeons stab people with knives- technically correct, but it's misleading. Just as a surgeon skillfully applies the scalpel, a well-applied and well-timed spanking is safe and effective. Any kind of abuse is wrong, but there's a difference between that and wise spanking."

I don't want to put the lady's name who wrote it, but I thought that was good- so I shared.

yeah so true and I do beleive in spanking because if you don't then the kids are going to walk right over you and just keep doing the same old thing if you just keep saying no and its not abuse I mean if you keep hitting that child then yeah we got a big problem so just dont get out of control and right then start beating the kid.
