If any of you have children, would you use physical discipline? Why or why not?

Idk.. I misbehaved all the time as a child so my mom took me to the doctor to see if I had ADHD and I remember the guy just saying I needed to be spanked more. I hated that guy. But was he right?

Absolutely not. Studies shown physical discipline would cause negative long term affects on children. There are numerous of harmless ways to discipline children and for them to get the point without resorting to hitting.
When you really think about it, why does it ever have to be necessary for you to hit them on the butt when it comes to discipline out of everywhere else. It sounds like sexual abuse. A slap in the face is much different, but still.

Clearly you don't know what you're talking about. Totally dismissing an idea and refuting it using extremism-driven points and instantly equating physical contact to being wrong just shows your own ignorance. Be realistic. The problem isn't that spanking doesn't work. Spanking done with reasonable technique ** does not ** cause "negative long term affects"; that line far too subjective to hold any real meaning anyway. Physical contact is not wrong by definition. Spanking is ** NOT ** sexual abuse; don't even joke about that, child.

Obviously the problem is how to eliminate the extremist cases, and to define exactly how to judge when someone has gone too far. Spanking is a physical stimulation on what [i] should [/i] be the largest fat deposit on the body, so the child should come to no harm in all typical scenarios.

In the same way I've typed this out for you, I could have also done the same for someone else being ignorant and saying that "inviting children to exercise cognitive development and decision making through discussion is a waste of time", because it's not a waste. I don't know if I would do it if I was a parent, but stop spouting nonsense that you think might justify what you want to push onto other people.

I got spanked as a child and didn't grow up with any negative psychological effects from it and I don't resent my parents for it or anything, they did it within reason and I never considered it abuse.

The literature doesn't support it, but I think it's more of a cultural thing to understand and it isn't something that can just be studied so cut and dry as there's too many anecdotal/subjective variables.

I probably won't spank my kids though, as there are other ways of discipline that don't involve physically hitting them which are just as effective if not more effective.

Spoiled children are the worst, as worst as the irresponsible parents who raise them.

I would. Spanking was the only way I'd actually LEARN from my mistakes as a stupid, short attention spanned child. It wasn't exactly painful, but the experience of it made me think twice before I did something that I THOUGHT would get me in trouble.

Theres also the, what I call, "momma stare". Y'know that look your mom gave you that like...shocked your very core and made you behave? Yeah.

Rather use some 'psychology' to push for desired behavior. ...
Physical discipline would just push some unnecessary trauma or an unstable standing in the parent-child relationship.
