I can remember doing this sort of thing when I was a new Mum.

Spanking, properly spanking by definition, is not abusing. It is not abuse. I was spanked growing up & that taught me to obey my parents & respect others. I wasn't always spanked, but when it was necessary it happened. I'm thankful my parents & grandparents spanked me when needed & I will spank my children.
