Question by *Laura*: Opinions on “spanking is abuse” parents?
What is your opinion of the people that say “spanking your child is abuse” “I’m going to call CPS on you if I see you spank that child” “my child can do what they want,they’re their own person” etc and end up with drug addicted pregnant teens,and want to blame the REST of society for their children being how they are? Don’t you agree that those parents should be the most to blame for how their children are? I mean obviously they’ve taught them no morals,no self value,nothing of that sort,not a difference between right and wrong. Your opinions? I think spanking is 100% fine if it’s done in the right way,with the right reasons behind it,not just because you’re mad at your child. It’s done to teach a lesson,not to abuse a child. HUGE difference between spanking and abuse,and by not spanking/teaching your children right/wrong,you’re allowing THEM To become the abusers to someone else because they don’t know any better.

Answer by Mrs. Bobby Ray a.k.a B.o.B
I think when a parent spanks their child its for a good reason. It keeps them steady and out of jail.!

Answer by la-tee-da

I thought you got this all out yesterday. Why still ranting today?

I personally do not spank. I have no children of my own- and regardless of a parent’s discipline techniques, I feel I have no right to lay my hand on another person’s child- EVER.
