No, spanking is not child abuse.  But  beating a child  with an electric cord or a wide belt is child abuse.

WHEN I WAS GROWING UP I NEVER GOT A SPANKING WE GOT DISPLINED & WAS SENT TO OUR ROOMS OR TIME OUT AND I TURNED OUT ALRIGHT AND WHEN I GOT MARIED AND HAD KIDS I TREATED THEM THE SAME AS WHEN I WAS GROWING UP...BUT SPANKING A CHILD IS NOT CHILD ABUSE UNLESS YOU ARE BEATING THEM AND LEAVING BRUISES

When I was a child, my parents spanked me on the butt with a wooden spoon. It worked perfectly, it didn't hurt too bad and never left a mark but it sure got the point across. Spanking is not abuse. Beating the crap out of your child is. I still believe that a swat should be allowed in school. More people need to discipline these days. I'm sorry but those who don't spank their children and try to "talk it out" are wasting their breath. All they're doing is raising a brat who can get away with anything because there are no consequences. Time-outs and groundings really don't work, atleast not when they're little and that's when it counts. I do spank my son, he cries for about 5 minutes and that's it. He's learned his lesson and knows that if he does it agian he'll get another spanking. I do not hit my child nor do I curse him or anything else to abuse my son. A spanking is just that and it's not abuse.

Although these days most people n even CPS will beg to differ but I think spanking ur child is not abuse as long as its not a daily thing n u are not beating the child mercilessly. Even the bible says spear the rod n spoil d child. If you are interested u can look up these bible verses; prov 13:24, prov 19:18, prov 22:15, prov 23:13-14, prov 29:15, Hebrews 12:6-7.

No, excessive force on a child is though. A good swat never hurt a child. Your local DHS could answer more on this topic.

yes i agree, dont leave marks otheewise u will be called on.

It's not child abuse if you're not beating them or leaving bruises. Some kids just need to be spanked to learn to not do things that they shouldn't do.

:D

The Bible says spare the rod, spoil the child, you take it from there.  I don't believe in beating a child sense less but there is a time when a child needs a spanking.  I got them when I was growing up and I was raised in a Good Christian Home.  And I turned out alright and am a have been a Christian since I was a teenager.

I don't think it is abuse.As long as you don't go overboard with it.There is a difference between a beating and a spanking.If you look at kids today.You can almost tell which ones get a spanking and the ones who don't.Even my granddkids tell me that their cousin needs a good old spanking,because he is so mean.My mother abused us as  a child and my sister will not spank hers for fear that she will go overboard.You have to have control.But kids will run over you if youlet them.And my other sister had a cop tell her that she needed to take my niece inside and giver a spanking,Their was abuse and there was discipline.

It should not be as long as its not excessive. Its a good disciplinary tool when used correctly

There is a difference between spanking and beating.  A spanking never hurt anyone except for there feelings and for the most part it taught me and probably you a lesson.  Most of the time when you spank a child they don't do it again.  In public isn't a good thing to do but in home yes.  Some people think its not right to spank but I was not spared from it and trust me once you get a real good spanking you remember it and try your best not to mess up anymore.  My opinion.   :dontknow: :thumbsup: :wave: :cat:

Hope You Have A Happy New Year

there are other options to raising a child without physical harm. best things is to take a behavior modification course which will teach you how to change bad behavior to acceptable behavior, believe me i know, i used to be a habilitative trainer for mentally challenged men and would teach them independant living. if you do chose to go the route of spanking, sometimes thats the one thing that works for a child, make sure you do not hit them out of anger it is open palmed and a small pat on the butt. the fear is what gets the child..not the physical pain so it doesn't have to be hard.

if you don't want to emotionally scar your child, in my oppinion, it is best to sit them down and let them know you love them and explain what they did wrong and why it was wrong.

don't forget to reward good behavior as well or the child will have lower self esteem.

It is abuse if the child is scared or hurt.
