It took me a long time to realize that there were types of "spanking" that were ok...[/b]
I hear that a lot actually. It's amazing how many people probably think we "beat our babies."
My family was in town last week during my surgery. I remember as a child, my dad would take off his belt and spank our bottoms with it. We had a wooden paddle that the teacher used at school. I told my parents that I'll only use my hand with Ben because these days, using an object other than your hand ... even if it's the traditional paddle! ... is grounds for a bogus assault case!
We have a woman at church who uses a wooden spoon instead of a paddle. My mom used to keep a peach tree switch in the book rack of the pew at church.
As long as the "spanking" is age appropriate, it's not abuse.
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
