I am nutural currently.
I got my butt beat pretty bad when I was a kid and I turned out fine.....then I see some punk kids out there that need there butt beat.....and then I see my son debate if it came down to it if I would be able to or not.
He is almost 3 now, so I dont think I am going to have to worry about it for now.

I dont spank because I was. Its not how I want my children raised.

Well, when I was a kid my parents never really spanked me, so of course I never planned on using spanking with my own kids, not because I was against it but because I didn't have any experience with it. Well, fast forward 13 years later and I have used an occasional spanking with both my kids. It is not something that is used often, in fact for us it has pretty much been reserved as a last resort discipline. It is not close to the only discipline that we use as talking to them, sending them to their rooms, no electronics and groundings are also used. Also I never spank if I'm angry, only when I'm calm and only if other methods have failed. I know a lot of people don't agree with spanking at all, and that's fine and I accept that, I'll just say that for us it has been a useful discipline over the years.

We have done a swat on the booty if they absouloutly won't listen, but we try everything else first. I can't remember the last time we had to give them a spanking. :)

Spanking is our last straw
Same here. We use a variety of methods of parenting and we rarely have to spank but it isn't out of the question if we feel it is needed.

Spanking is something we have done in the past and will do again I am sure but it is out last resort. Normally time out or talking to her will work though.
We've never spanked any of our children. I believe that it has the potential to be unnecessarily destructive to the relationship I want with my children.
It isn't always easy, but eliminating the option forces me to be the parent that our children need and i want to be.

Well it is really needless to say the child learned nothing ,if you will make them learn they will surely:)
