I do not believe in brutally beating a child or striking a child out of anger, but a spanking may prove necessary to keep some children in line. I'd rather give my child a spanking than let the world spank them!
I agree with this completely. I was spanked as a kid and I felt very loved because of that. There's just something about parents correcting you that makes you feel safe and protected.
That's just how I saw it at my early age. I came from a very loving family, and after a spanking I would receive a very thoughtful letter from my father explaining everything; why I was spanked, and the lesson he'd want me to learn from it.
I kept all those letters, and now that my father's passed away I had those letters framed because they touch my heart. It's a good reminder of the bond and love that I experienced growing up.
To spank a child is never to hurt the child. You spank a child to correct the child, because you love the child.
However, now that I am a parent myself, I never spank my kids. It's ironic that I don't practice what I preach, but I've never found enough reason to. I am blessed with a very obedient and responsible girl, so I also agree that sometimes spanking is unnecessary.
