I didn't

spank my boys and I rarely raise my voice to them. However, I do seem to have been blessed with a vicious "stink eye" and an ice cold delivery. I also don't make threats I don't intend to keep. I'm not against spanking, I think it depends on the child, the parent and the situation.
As far as our home being libertarian, we are in the sense that we respect each others individuality, property and privacy but it's run more like a Benevolent Dictatorship.

"By any account, if they were adults and I forced them to do these things, then I am a tyrant."
My house, my rules, if you're an adult leave or pay the bills and you can tell me what to do. :-)
