    Were YOU spanked?

    Is spanking "wrong"? (They say your IQ might be affected adversely from being spanked).

    yes, I was.

    Yes, I was spanked. About lower iq's, a basic premise of logic is that correlation does not equal causation--a point missed by most on this topic.

    One of my favorite movies:

    Idiocracy - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/

    Plot: Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive


    Yes, I spanked my kids. However, my ex and I sat down and discussed that spanking was a punishment reserved for blatant rebellion, lying, or theft. Anything else got groundings or restrictions. Spankings had a whole set of rules that we had to adhere to. They could only be administered by the parent who was not directly involved, had to be administered with both parents present, and after an hour "time-out". The spanking was a single swat on the butt. We really strifed to not spank out of anger or for silly reasons, like my ex and I got spanked over.

    I was more than spanked, a spank would have been so much easier.

    We dont spank our children, I have tapped them on the hand but grounding works best or taking a fav toy away works with the eldest.
