(...and the fathers.) Do you believe in spanking? With that question being asked I have a similar one: Do you believe in spanking in this day and age? I always felt that spanking was good and it DID help the child learn what was right and what was wrong. I've seen many stories out there that say you could go to jail for hitting your child and even have him/her taken away. I couldn't believe it! I'm a single person without any children and probably have no right in saying if it was right or not, but with the children in today's world I just needed to say that they need to be spanked in order for them to learn, behave and survive in todays society. Your thoughts?
