I got spanked as a kid as did my 3 other siblings. My mom & dad found making us pick out our own switch to be especially effective. If we picked a small one then they got to pick - we didn't ever want them to pick. I've got two kids now and yes the get spanked too. With a ping pong paddle by me or by hand if there dad does it. I'm not hurting my hand to spank them. I don't however spank them over everything. The biggest thing is back talking, getting in trouble in school, or for repeat offenses.
In case no one else has posted this:
13 Donít fail to discipline your children.
They wonít die if you spank them.
14 Physical discipline
may well save them from death.
