Do you agree with spanking as an acceptable punishment?


A NY court ruled that spanking is a 'reasonable use of force.' Do you agree with this ruling?

Yes, I think spanking is OK as a punishment. No, a hand should never be raised to a child, no matter how they're behaving. I don't think it's anyone's business how a parent chooses to discipline a son or daugther.
