I thought of posting this anonymously, to encourage responses likewise, but I just don't roll that way. But Anons, please feel free to add your two cents. What are your thoughts on the whole "spare the rod spoil the child thing?"

I have done my best, nearly 100% accurately, to parent without striking, but I am at my wits' end in some circumstances. I am starting to think the only way I can snap a certain child out of their current behavior pattern is a good old fashioned whoopin'.

I am curious to what the current climate of discipline is.

In my day (cough, gag, wheeze, walk uphill in the snow without shoes to school both ways) it took one spanking for an offense, and the lesson stuck. Is that really not okay now? Our generation was raised that way, and I think we're pretty cool.
