I personally believe that parents SHOULD be allowed to spank their children.

Children in this day and age grow up having no respect for anyone and are essentially untouchable. They know this as much as we do and they abuse that new right they have.

If more parents punished their children, they would grow up having a lot more respect.

Those who say it is wrong or that it will cause the children to grow up traumatised is absolute poppycock.
These are the comments of people who didn't like punished when they did wrong.

I got spanked as a child and I grew up fine. No trauma and I have a massive amount of respect for my parents and other elders.

What do you think?
