I will say I'm not a big one on spanking unless as an ABSOLUTE last resort or for something that has crossed that line of just testing boundaries to down right brattiness (can't think of a better way to describe that line, LOL).
The kids that I see in my 9 yr olds class who's parents use spanking as the preferred method of discipline, are more commonly the ones that have little respect for others and following the rules. Of course this is not always the case, but it's just what seems like to me.
Ideally I don't want to be the type of parent that "over" disciplines (my in-laws), but also not the kind that friendship is more important than parenting (my neighbors). I want to raise them to respect the rules & authority, but also to think for themselves. I want them to be able to respectfully question things that feel need to be addressed.
It's just finding that balance for each child. Obviously what worked AMAZINGLY w/ one, is pointless for the other
