When I was younger I used to get spanked. but then my parents stopped because
they felt like hitting me wasn't going to solve the problem. so I eventually just grew out of it. Preteens/teens we just talk about what I did wrong and why I
am getting grounded.
I've never gotten the belt. To me, it seems like too harsh of a punishment anyways. If I ever punish my kids it would only be with a spanking and after a certain point you just have to reason with them.
Well, I've only been grounded like once but it was just for a day and I couldn't use electronics & let me tell you, that day went by so slow. :/ But I agree with the others, I'm not sure what you did but then again, I don't think parents should use physical pain to punish their children. Or emotional for that matter
