Re: The spank debate...
I find it kind of ironic that the previous poster used the phrase rule of thumb.

Rule of thumb was actually a law that a man could legally beat his wife and children as long as the stick he used wasn't bigger around than his thumb was.

I personally don't agree with spanking. However I have found myself spanking dd1 and am not proud of it, as it is out of frustration. Corporal punishment is never effective long term. Some people may say it is, but it's the other things we do to teach our kids that is long term effective. I've been able to move away from spanking now and am finding myself much better at redirection and avoiding issues in the first place.
