Am I a bad parent if I spank my child

Does spanking your child really help? Is it an effective form of discipline? Do we as parents sometimes have guilt associated with spanking our children? I know my parents and many others like them believed in the old saying, "Spare the rod, spoil the child." One thing for sure spanking does interrupt misbehavior. To many parents spanking is considered acceptable as long as the parent or guardian uses self control. Spanking can teach a child right from wrong and a child who is spanked understands to do as their told. Others disagree and find that spanking promotes domestic violence and that an adult who was spanked regularly as a child is more likely to become a repeat violent offender. The country of Sweden banned child spanking in 1979 and the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child has been seeking to ban child spanking since 1996. Currently it is legal to spank your child in the United States as long as it is deemed as reasonable punishment. Psychologist, Diana Baumrind says, "Children who were spanked occasionally had no more behavioral problems than children who were never spanked." Do you believe spanking is the key to discipling your child or do you take a more passive approach such as time out?
