I think, that if you can get your kid be behave adn act respectful, then no spanking is neccissary. But if not, then a wooden spoon can go a a long way. I have two boys. They usually are well behaved. But every once in a while, the wooden spoon must be used. You can only tell a 4 year old that what they did was bad so many times before they become deaf to what your saying. I only spank my children when necissary.

It's unfortunate that kids today don't learn consequence until their are 18 year old adults, and that's when they learn consequence. How many of America's prisons operate below capacity?

These days though, they basically have removed this (or anything else) from the parent's toolbox, and instead give kids all the power...which is then why we end up with kids pregnant at 12, and knocking over liquor stores at 14.
I'm all for trying the psycho-babble tricks first, and taking away the kid's XBox, cable, iPhone, etc. these days...but some things still warrant an old-fashioned spanking to be sure.
