it is definitely different strokes for different folks. I had an aunt where she never laid a hand on nobody, but she had the whole family shook--even adults. And when she said she was disappointed in you, you wanted to crawl under a rock. She has since passed away, but I like to think that I took her crown for that disposition
I just feel that some anti-spanking people want to prove that you can handle every child without doing so, and you are a horrible person if you consider it.Where as the people who talk about spanking here are acknowledging that spanking is not the only
way to deal with children.
