"Raising a child is like taking care of someone who’s on way too many shrooms, while you yourself are on a moderate amount of shrooms. I am not confident in my decisions, but I know you should not be eating a mousepad."
Absolutely agree with you. I think it just causes unnecessary pain for the child and they often don’t learn anything from it. Or you’ll hit them often enough that they will become too scared to do anything. There are other ways of disciplining a child that work without resorting to spanking a child.
