Truth is, I think I will still spank if the crime deserves the punishment.
We did the "time out" thing and it works well. I talk big now that my kids are growing up but we used physical punishment as a last resort. We don't get the wooden spoon out often, but when all else fails, the wooden spoon can be very effective. Good Luck, being a parent is not as easy as it looks.. The payoff is when they grow up and seem to act better than I was at that same age.
