At what age is it too old to be spanking your kids?
January 8, 2013 at 2:44 PM

I remember when I was 5 years old, my step dad would spank his 16 or 17 year old son.

Would you spank your older children if you thought it was working?

    That is sooo not okay. Spanking at an older age just seems sexual.

    Not sure I even want to get into this but I will throw this out there. I doubt I would or will spank my kids when they are older. However all middle and high schools in our county spank. Having subed in those school I knew many hs seniors getting the butts warmed.

    I would punish them with a punishment but not spank them every parent is different

    At age 16 my son outweighted me by about 50 pounds and was 8 inches taller than me, attempting to spank him would have been more comical. So I guess my answer is, when they outweight you its time to stop!

    If it works for the older child, yes. I remember my mom taking a belt to my older brother when he was a teenager but she just gave him acouple whacks on the neck, not on the butt. But with some kids that are older a punishment such as grounding or taking a way a phone might work better....

    No way, that's too old, I'll be fist fighting with them at that age. ;) I don't even really spank my kids much now, they're 7,7,4 and 1.
