Belts?????

mom's what is your feeling on using the belt on kids while growing up my father used a belt on me and I did not like it one bit on how he used it......
Now I will say I only! use the belt on my kids if it is the last resort I only hit them once but not hard to leave a mark I do feel bad for using it but it does get them to listen now a days if I am at my breaking point all I have to do it get the belt and they know I mean business.

How do you guys feel about this????

      Um.. No.. Sorry, I'm super anti spanking or physical punishment in ANY way.. at all. So I don't think I'm the person to answer this.. I wouldn't spank my kids.. and have never "had" to and don't plan it.. so I'm thinking the Belt isn't in my deck of cards here..

      My kids dad was told to "pick a switch".. and belt was an option.. He hates his father now.. My other friend growing up was also hit with other things and she too has a high distaste for her parents.. and how they raised her and has vowed to never hit her kids with anything..

      But I try not to judge any home and realize that people are raised differently. So, I'm going to bow outta of this one for now :)

        I was hit with the belt and shoe and a switch, well anything that was close enough to grab. I don't believe in that at all. you don't want your kids deathly afraid of u. most I have done is a spanking and doing that just brought me to tears,,i havnt done that ever again. I believe everyone has a breaking point but its always good to walk away and breath for a moment and then come back and reassess the situation.

          Absolutely not for is. To be honest I don't believe in it. I of my spank, and don't think using an object is the way to do anything either. I just don't think it's necessary.

            Oh my, I thought you were talking about when little kids should start wearing belts!! I have only ever spanked two of my kids only once each when he/she was doing something very dangerous and wouldn't stop. Just the shock of me doing that to them stopped them cold, and believe me, it was an absolute last resort that I've never repeated. I think a belt is awfully extreme and could really hurt them, even if you didn't intend to do so. Even if your parents did this to you, I think you have an opportunity not to repeat that behaviour.

              I truly respect everybody's choice.

              Rinna I don't use the belt just cause my parents did it is something that I chose to do

              Milagro my children are not afraid of me I do correct them in other ways like time out or they are grounded the belt is the very and I mean very last choice I have spanked them without the belt before.

                I do not agree with this form of punishment... there are other alternatives

                  I'm with Ashlyne my parents spanked my brother and I actually let me take that back mom said wait till your dad gets home from work I was only ever spanked once but I knew that if mom said wait for dad it wasn't going to be pretty and he just used his hand he didn't need anything else! I don't hate my parents for anything they did to raise my brother and I we knew we were loved our parents worked very hard to provide for us and we could talk to them anytime we needed to they had or backs in every situation I plan to do the same with my kids
