Most events that result in spanking are a failure of the parents

A kid breaks something valuable. Well why was it accessible in the first place. A kid uses a Sharpy all over the house. Why was it accessible? On and on.

Don't set your kids up for failure and the resulting punishment. Kids are curious, clumsy, destructive, etc. Control their access to anything you would get angry about if they did something to it. Give them an outlet for energy like a sport. When they are worn out there is less chance of mischief. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, karate, soccer, etc. bring out good results. TV as the babysitter brings out the bad.

BE A PARENT not a COP.

Set your kids up for success not failure. You have to spend time to be a parent. If your not up to it don't be one. If you're just having kids because everyone else has them please stop and get sterilized. You will not be a good parent.

I never spanked my kids and they turned out great. Sure, I got angry with them on occasion, but not over anything major. Nothing to make me go blind with rage and want to inflict pain on them. I wanted them to be successful in growing up not live in fear.
