Spanking

I know there is a huge debate over spanking. What I am curious to know is, what are your views on this topic?

Are you pro or against it? Why? Do you have strong opinions on it or do you just worry about what you feel is right for your family? Were you spanked as a child?

    Yes we spank. We don't do it anger, we only do it when needed and we make sure they know why they are in trouble. Dennis was spanked, but I heard enough stories from my siblings I don't remember getting spanked.
    There is a huge difference between spanking and abusing but yet a very, very fine line.

        I am against it outside of situations like running into the road--life threatening ones. I find it teaches mindless obedience, which I do not want from my child.
