Now listen parents, spanking is NEVER the correct punishment. All you will do is scar your child/teen. Stand up for yourself but do so respectfully. Tell your parents that spanking teaches you nothing and you would like another punishment.
Be mature about it. If they yell for hours on end let them do so then calmly respond.
