I relatively quite new here, but there is something I have noticed when I read through the forums here.
I know there are already other posts here that discuss whether spanking is good or not, but my question is different and is aimed towards those who do spank. So please don't turn this into a discussion about that
Many times I have heard moms referring to "a spanking" here and there, but when you read between the lines, I find out that 'spanking' consitutes for quite different things in different peoples houses. For some, it means a small swat on the hiney, and vice versa for some it means going over a lap and using an implement to swat kids bottoms.
I want to ask this question: what does "a spanking" in your house constitute?
In my house, first and foremost 'a spanking' means 'bare bottom.' I will pick them up , pull down pants and put her over my knee. I spank around 3 or 4 times 'not very hard', only with my bare palm (not a spoon etc).
After I spank, we will hug and make up, of course.
Can you define what a spanking constitutes with your kids, if you do spank? (do you take down pants, put them over your lap or whatever...)
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
