Spanking should always be an option.
Afterall, it is Biblical.
Rod of Discipline
The most effective spanking is the one that isn’t given, but to say spanking isn’t a parental option, is ridiculous. When people quote statistics that say spanking is harmful to kids’ psyche, keep in mind that they can be biased. Statistics (like spanking) can be abused and abusive.
Spanking shouldn’t be our first and only disciplinary option, but when administered in the way that God ordained it to be, it is an effective tool against foolishness and rebellion. Proverbs 22:15 says, “Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.”
