Comment: Spanking is a necessary tool for parenting.

(See in situ)

Spanking is a necessary tool for parenting.

The problem is that people don't know when to spank and when not to spank. And it is only really effective when they are young. By the time they reach teenage it is less effective as a disciplinary tool and probably to late to correct bad parenting in the first place.

Every kid is different so there isn't a one size fits all approach and there are some kids who are naturally obedient and/or well mannered and then there are "bad seeds" who just seem to refuse to behave.

I think what has grown to be the number one cause of bad parenting is government intervention. Government wants to dictate how parents can raise their children and that is another reason why society is in such a downfall. But one fact is undeniable and that is that the liberal push to prohibit spanking, along with other liberal influences, correlates with the decay of society.
