For spanking:

If it is assault for me to hit you. I don't believe it is right for me to assault my child.

I didn't birth this beautiful child only to hit him/her.

We don't spank. I don't think it is right for a larger person to bully a smaller one.

There will come a day when he/she will be too big to spank. I need to have better tools in my parenting toolbox than brute force.

For CIO:

I don't nurture my child one moment and abandon him/her the next.

There is not a single mammal I can think of that does not bed down with their baby. Why would I leave my infant to cry him/herself to sleep?

I want my kid to grow up and be afraid of normal things like bugs, not that Mommy (or Daddy) will leave him/her.

I wonder how all the people with committment and relationship issues were created?

That's all that is coming to mind right now. I'm trying to be nice and I'm struggling.
