i have such mixed feelings on this, it's unreal.

part of me thinks that spanking a child is just not cool and not appropriate -- mostly because all of the times i've ever seen a child being spanked has been by parents who were angry....like their kid just did something RIGHT then and there was that immediate emotional response by the parents that translated into spanking.

the other part thinks that there are times a few good swats on the tush aren't necessarily a terrible thing.

me? i'm not going to spank. i'm going to just threaten to give her away when she's bad. *grin* i kid! but really, i don't think we'll be spankers -- or if we *ever* do, it will not be out of immediate anger.

at least that's what i say with my mouth.

(but the legislation part? it's craptastic and foolish.)

yes, I think i'm biased because I can't ever remember a time where I got spanked out of anger - or without a warning.

It was always "girls, you need to stop that"
"If you don't stop that, I'm getting the wooden spoon..."
and if we stopped here, it was fine, and if we didn't, we got swatted.

It's all about learning there's a consequence to your actions.

And I do think that emotional spanking is teh bad.

No mixed feelings here!

Heck I've already spanked my child.
