As someone who was spanked multiple times weekly for most of my childhood, I can tell you that violence is not something I am interested in.
I have only been in a single physical altercation, I threw one punch and it was over. The kid was on top of me, I swung and broke his face - literally, fractured his orbital bone.
Spanking a child on the bottom for mouthing off, being a brat, misbehaving, not listening, etc. is not a form of abuse - it's age old discipline.
Teach consequences to poor choices, or don't.
They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.
