"I support a little spanking here and there. But it should be done with your hand and not an object. You should be feeling the same pain that your child is feeling. I was spanked when I acted up as a child, and I feel that I am a high functioning member of society today for it. I know kids that were never spanked... but were put in "time-out". They were brats back then, and they are still brats now. If something doesn't go there way they complain instead of sucking it up like a normal adult."
