It only teaches a child to be violent and solve their problems with violence. I spanked my son a total of 3xs in his life and only for things that were dangerous to himself. Like crossing the street for instance. He never did that again. And no, he was never a discipline problem.
Did your son every get into trouble with the law?
Once for having a bottle of beer, he was under 21. I am not trying to make excuses for him because he WAS with a group of guys and they were drinking. The cops asked whose it was and nobody would speak up. You know how cops do....they said somebody better admit to it or they all would get rolled up, so he stepped up. And yes the kid who it belonged to did get a little schooling after the fact Thats it though. And I am not saying we didnt have our share of problems when he was a teenager, we did. But for the most part he has been a good boy and he learns from his mistakes and is now a better man because of them.
