you know what? my son is one of the most well behaved little boys. He hardly ever does anything wrong because he knows if he does something he isnt supposed to he is gonna get it from mommy. but in my sons case he cries even if its a soft pat, he cryies cuz his feelings got hurt, not cuz it hurt.

Spanking isn't. Punching is. Kids need discipline. We don't need more children that can control their parents.

nope, definitely not, if done only in response to defiance and does not inflict injury.  i believe spanking for anything the child can't help or is not old enough to be responsible for is emotional abuse, but then so is any reaction that expects more from a child than he/she is capable of.

I think most people do consider spanking child abuse now days. Personally I think it depends on what purpose you are trying to achieve,  example: Are you angry and trying to relieve your frustration by hitting your child? Another question one must ask themself is how old the child is, how hard they are spanked, is the spanking achieveing a purpose? I remember many years ago eating at a Grandy's restaurant; the manager's husband had brought their kids in and one of the children spilled a coke (by accident) and he started beating that child right there in the restaurant; now that was child abuse.

I think so. I don't think any child should be inflicted with pain for any reason. There are other ways to teach children what they are doing is wrong and not appropriate behavior.
