I agree with you on some points. I was spanked as a child, and so was my husband, and we both have no problem with the idea of spanking in general. I remember it gave me a healthy fear and respect for my parents. I also vividly remember my great grandmother making me go out into the yard to find a "switch," which was pure torture. I'd be sobbing as I looked for a good-sized twig. It wasn't like they did it often; when I was spanked, I deserved it. I could be an ornery kid, and my husband was about twice as bad as I was. ;)

I think I would have a problem with someone else smacking my child. There are so many psychos out there, and I wouldn't trust anyone else to judge what was spank-worthy. I would much prefer that I get a phone call, and myself or my husband would handle the issue when our child returned home from school. This was how it was when I was a kid, and the anticipation of a spanking when I arrived home was almost worse than the actual spanking itself.

And for goodness sake, don't go suing everybody when things don't go your way. We need to grow up, adults and children alike.

Word. I'm sick of how litigious Americans have become.
