I have spanked all of my kids.  I have also yelled at them and put them in a corner.

I have received so many comments from people about how well behaved my kids are.

And guess what?  My kids still love me even though they were spanked.  When my plane landed at midnight, and left the terminal my two boys ran, yes ran up to me and nearly knocked me over with their hugs.

Frankly that's all I care about...my kids.  I will raise them as I see fit and hope they turn out well.  So far they are doing well.

In Christ,
KP

 Oh, I am sure they were so glad to see you, and that touched my heart.

I have seen parents that are constantly spanking their children...and hollering at them to behave...and it doesn't seem to do any good...they are still rotten to the core.

Somewhere along the line the parent's or children just didn't connect....no clue as to why.

All I do know is about my son...rather too truthful at times (if such a thing can be said)
And usually well behaved and teachable.

(he has his moments like most children)

The only time corporal punishment was ever used was when he was willfully defiant. Other than that usually redirection or making him think/realize about the consequences of his actions was enough.

Does it say anywhere in the bible that you should spank your kids? I'm not arguing with anyone I'm just curious.

My mom, has its own way of disciplining us, she never spank her children. She would always say, that it would be better to talk to us, about the wrong things we've done.  She generously explains everything to help us understand that we should not be doing those things.

I hate that I can't spank my child when I need to (i.e., in public). He's only 3, and a delayed spanking at this age is simply not effective. It doesn't take much, either - one light swat and his heart is absolutely broken. I just don't dare do it in public, except at church.
IF you spank a child in public some do gooder will callthe police and report you for "Child abuse" which  I think is just wrong.

Only rods are authorized.   Or     

That is Old Testament - God has become a christian now (I do wonder how non OTers can justify using this verse as if it were still relevant today but can't see the value in IM verses.....)

From the bible version that I'm reading, it mentions the 'rod'. Proverbs 29:15 - A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom, but children left to themselves disgrace their mother.
Proverbs 29:17 - Discipline your children, and they will give you peace: they will bring you the delights you desire.
Proverbs 23:13-14 Do not withhold discipline from your children; if you punish them with the rod, they will not die. Punish them with the rod and save them from death.

This is why reading the entire word of God is so important. I have not read the entire bible from Genesis to Revelations, but I have read a good bit of it and while I believe (from what I have read and studied) physically disciplining your child is ok, there is also self-control and love, which has to be included in all forms of discipline. We should not spank our children out of anger, but out of love, because we want them to be better people. I remember, thinking 'now how can I physically discipline my son' if I'm not angry. Because usually, by the time I've calmed down, I don't want to spank. But I've also realized that a spanking (or as well call it around here, 'whoopin', LOL) is good for him. I don't believe in embarrassment or abuse, but I do know that all children born into sin and we as parents must show them the way to go. And when I child knows better, they should do better. Plain and simple. And if they continue to act out, a whoopin wont hurt them. When I child sees that he or she can get away with whatever they want, they just may continue to do it (shoot, we as adults are like that too with our Father (in Heaven) - but praise God He is a lot more patient with us)).

Now on the other hand, every parent has their own strategy. Some choose to spank, some dont. But discipline IS needed. Respect is required. If we let our children do whatever we want to do just to spare their feelings, then what kind of people will they be when they have to face this world without the assistance of mom and dad?? If a child uses bad language, don't laugh, do something about it. If a child goes around hitting on others 'just because' nip it in the bud. God has made us parents for a reason, and if we don't know what to do, he is there every step of the way to help us and guide us through. Praise God!!!

I do spank, and I believe it's biblical if done in the spirit of loving correction, not angry retribution for your ego having been insulted.

There are six kids in my house, and all of them are different in their temperament and response to correction.Spanking is necessary sometimes for a couple of them, and more often for two in particular.

HOW DARE YOU, i have only just joined this forum and untill now i have agreed with everything you have said untill now. Spanking your child is wrong i teaches them nothing except fear for their perants for the people that are supposed to love and protect them, Put yourself in a childs shoes im 6"3 and wiegh about 196 im sure you are all about my size or smaller or bigger but if i imagine a 12"3 guy who wieghs 400 pounds hitting me well im going to be scared. We can not allow people to hit their children it is unbelievable wrong would it be alright for a man to hit his wife would that teach her something if i kicked my dog would that fair would that show that i cared for it spanking breeds fear spanking builds resentment spanking builds hatred, as i have mentioned two of my friends have tried to commit suicide and i can put my hand on my heart and say that these two were the only that had perants that hit them wait thats a lie, anouther of my friends is beatern by his perants it started with a light smack and now he spends about 7 months of year in hospital but the police wont do a thing do you not understand what giving people that little amount of power does it makes them need more it makes them abuse it...

Spanking is not beating a kid up.  Spanking is not wrong.  When done right, it is the best deterrent to violence and it instills respect for authority.  We are living in a world devoid of discipline and a lack of respect for authority.
No spanking is not wrong.  kids need to be spanked in order to help them learn not to behave a certain way

I have not read all the responses as the thread is long.

I would like to share my personal experience.  I am middle aged now. I grew up in a home where my parents didn't care what we kids did. We came and went as we pleased, did what we wanted, had no love, no boundries, and raised ourselves.

As a child, I wanted my parents to love me, set boundaries, and set consequences for misbehavior.

I wish my parents had set limits and given me a spanking when I needed it. I grew up feeling (to this day) that nobody card about me . I  tried to get into trouble, at home, school, testing to see if even one adult would take me aside, explain why I needed punishment, and followed through with my needed discipline. Not one ever did.

I saw other children with loving parents who set limits and enforced them. I wanted that.

Now, as an old person, never having been loved and cared enough to discipline me, I feel worthless.

As a child, I knew I needed a spanking. I secretly wanted someone, anyone, to take me into their love and teach me, love me, and spank me when i so often needed it.

I tell this now to you young parents because kids need boundaries and loving discipline. They want it. A spanking for misbehavior also clears their conscious.

Love your kids, spank them in love, and they will grow up knowing they were loved and safe.

What do you do if you have a child with no issues, no behavioral or discipline problems?  Just a good, kind, loving kid.  Do you have to spank them so they will know they are loved, safe, well-behaved (even though they already are), so they will learn (what they seem to already know)?  Is he now spoiled because I didn't use a rod on him w/o cause?

You go by results.  You got good fruit?  Then, your way was perfect for your kid.  Unless he grew up well in spite of your way.  I figure those who turn out well sometimes do it in spite of the imperfections of their parents.
