I recently married a man with a 6 year old daughter.  Her mother passed away when she was 2 so I am the only mother influence she remembers.  She is very disrespectful to me.  She talks back, does not do as she is told, and trys to create conflcit between her father and I.  She spends a great deal of time with me when her father travels for business.  He says that maybe we should use spanking to get her in to shape.  I am afraid that being a step-mother that is crossing the lines.  I was wonder if any of you have opinions of what to do. Thanks[random]

I think you have the same rights as a real mother would. The child should respect you. I don't think you should spank her unless she gets really out of control. You should disapline her though. She needs to respect you.

Spanking your child is legal and the best form of punishment.  Just think about it, child brats have no-doubt increased in amount and spanking has no-doubt delined.  Think about it.

I was spanked and it taught me that disobedience was not acceptable in our household.  Even though you are a step-mother, a child should not direspect any elders especially one that has raised her. I think spanking is the best form of discipline.

Child buttock-battering for the purpose of gaining compliance is nothing more than an inherited bad habit.

Its a good idea for people to take a look at what they are doing and learn how to DISCIPLINE instead of hit.

I think the reason why television shows like "Supernanny" and "Dr. Phil" are so popular is because that is just what many (not all) people are trying to do.

There are several reasons why child buttock-battering isn't a good idea. Here are some good, quick reads recommended by professionals:

Plain Talk About Spanking
by Jordan Riak,

The Sexual Dangers of Spanking Children
by Tom Johnson,

NO VITAL ORGANS THERE, So They Say
by Leslie Taylor M.D. and Adah Maurer Ph.D.


Most compelling of all reasons to abandon this worst of all bad habits is the fact that buttock-battering can be unintentional sexual abuse for some children. There is an abundance of educational literature, testimonies, documentation, etc available on the subject that can easily be found by doing a little research on the topic.

Just a handful of those raising awareness of why child buttock-battering isn't a good idea:

American Academy of Pediatrics

American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Center For Effective Discipline

PsycHealth Ltd Behavioral Health Professionals

Churches' Network For Non-Violence

Nobel Peace Prize Recipient Desmond Tutu (supports Global Initiative)

Parenting In Jesus' Footsteps

Global Initiative To End All Corporal Punishment of Children

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

Countries where child buttock-battering is prohibited by law:

Sweden, Finland, Norway, Austria, Cyprus, Italy, Denmark, Latvia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Germany, Israel, Iceland, Ukraine, Romania, Hungary, Greece, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Uruguay, Venezuela, Chile, Spain, Costa Rica, Republic of Moldova, and more in process.

In fact, the US was the only UN member who did not sign the Convention on the Rights of the Child

A true academic should search for reasons why things are without bias, not why things aren't. For the former shall answer the latter.
