Yes it is quite shocking how many people still spank their children as if it really does something for their behavior. I luckily live in a small alternative town with very conscious parents. I don't know a single frien that spanks. I do however have relatives who offer up a spanking as a way to get their kids or grandkids to calm down. My own father spanked me maybe twice but hung his weight lifting belt outside my door to remind me to clean my room when I was four. I think most people aren't twisted, though there are a few that are, I think they are so uneducated and rarely stop to question what they are doing. I have seen the alternatives to spanking work wonders and create very intimate bonds between children and caregivers. OK, just thought of adding that in here.
