Growing up, my parents used corporal punishment (spanking) to teach me the ways of life. I personally think it's an effective way to raise children; it shows a child his/her limits. Back in high school, I used to be friends with a kid who was never spanked or hit when he was a child. He told me that his parents even worked for an agency that actively encouraged parents not to hit their children. Do you think spanking is an effective to raise children? Why or why not? Were you spanked as a child?
Spanking in action.
