Do you hit/spank your kids, or correct them someway through pain if they get out of line? If you don't have kids yet, do you plan on doing this? Parenting has really become controversial, and this is the topic most controversial about it. I personally have been spanked by my parents, with their hands and a belt, and I think I have come out alright. Once I get kids, I plan on spanking them if they get out of hand occasionally, but not much. For example, if one of my kids is acting like a spoiled brat at a public place like a grocery store, they probably wouldn't behave just because I tell them," Okay, that's it, NO sugar cereals for a month, and no more video games!" because kids don't think in the long term. Therefore I would give my kid a quick, hard, spank in the butt.
