    I think hell yes!

    its how kids learn. you touch a stove burn your hand and wont do it again.
    you act up and get popped up side the head and will think twice about doing it again.

    it is a natural way of raising a child into a adult. animals do it to. it is obsurd that it is against the law in some places to physically discipline a child.

    There is a line obviously but I see nothing wrong with spanking a kid.

    My parents never laid a finger on me so I don't think I can hit my children. However, my dad used to make me do manual labor whenever I got in trouble such as move the stack of bricks to the other side of the yard then decide he doesn't want them there and make me move them back.

    I'm going to use that when I have children lol. It's actually more brutal then getting spanked for a minute but the child doesn't get mentally fucked up.

    Depending on the situation, pre teens without any respect for other people should get their asses kicked.

    but little kids are babies dont, if they do something awful wrong its because they copied from their parents, in this case the parents should be beaten down.

    Hitting your kids is a cop out

    I'm 7 years older than my little sister, I grew up with physical discipline and she did not. Watching her grow up and the complete disrespect she shows towards my mom, hell fucking yes you should hit your kids. Now I'm not saying all kids need to be hit. But there are kids that don't play by the rules and need an asswhooping.

    Hitting kids always seems to be the refuge of the lazy parent, who can't handle frustration well. All the white trash parents at stores seem to hit their kids. So, I think it's probably best to figure alternatives to being the same as the trashy parents.

    I do wonder what you gotta do to get a really defiant child to do what you say though? Hitting seems like an easy solution, but plenty of parents raise kids well without hitting.

    Like I said, not every kid needs it but some absolutely do. Real parenting isn't a catchall thing were all the same techniques work for every kid. There's this point where a kid challenges the authority of a household that it becomes a necessity in my opinion.

    Hell to the no.

    Your child is not your property.
    Teach them, don't abuse them.

    If your children don't listen to you, then you've already fucked up somewhere during their early childhood.

    There are better methods than hitting to teach children right from wrong. I'm against hitting anyone no matter what their age.

    In a world of smart, kind people yes, unfortunately that's not what we have, and 'hitting' is so ambiguous. I think it's better to have a blanket 'no' on hitting kids, then it's easier to punish the abusive parents and get their kids away from them.

    Of course you should be allowed to hit your kid. You can't bar physical discipline completely. But parents need to administer that kind of punishment ethically; the degree to which one uses physical forms of discipline must be tempered with care. Abuse is not exactly a far cry from your standard spanking. Parents need to know where the line stands.

    Fuck no I view people who hit their kids or even threaten to hit their kids as weak minded people with a 1920's mentality on things. Learn how to actually teach them right from wrong and how to make a man/woman out of them. Hitting your kids isn't only going to fuck with them their whole life but it's taking the easy way out.
