I asked him if anyone said anything to him (like in the Wal-Mart like an employee) and he said to me and I quote "No one wanted any of this! Who was going to say somethin'?"
It was funny and scarey all at the same time!!!

Apparently, it was over winter break, of 07, and his son had returned home from college and at his parent's house there is still a curfew that had to be followed. So, one night, the son stayed out all night and then called the dad (the security guard) the next morning to see if he could come pick him up from a young lady's house. The dad drove 45 minutes to pick his son up and then took him to the local Wal-Mart to spank him with a boat paddle!!! I could not believe my hears when I was listening to this story!!! I was shocked and just beside myself when he was telling me this!!! Spanked his son, in Wal-Mart, with a boat paddle!!! And his son was 20 years old!!!
I would've high-fived my son in the same situation, but that just shows everyone has different standards in their own homes.

If the kid knew what the rules were at dad's house and flouted them he deserved the paddling.

When they get big enough to kick your butt, they are too old to spank.

There is no age limit, when they learn to behave themselves they shouldn't be hit.

Do you teach your kids to hit people when they don't like what they're doing? No? Sure you do, by "spanking" them, you're teaching them that you solve problems by hitting and that "might makes right."

You can discipline without hitting, you know.

Each child will reach the point of "no-spanking" at different ages. My son didn't reach the age of "reason" (I don't want you to do that because.....) until 5 - no more spankings. My daughter reached it at age 3 1/2 or 4. I think much beyond the age of 5 or so their isn't much accomplished in the act. They know right from wrong and consequences at that point (or should) and if they choose wrong you should look at the underlying reasons. Spanking is ineffective at that point.

I can't tell you how many times my siblings and I were spanked for fighting in the car at all ages. We knew the consequences and yet would do it anyways. It was so silly on my Mom's part when I think back. She was always saying, "You get spanked everytime, why do you do it?" I think, "you spanked us everytime and yet we continued to do it. Why did you continue to spank us when it was so clearly ineffective?"

Take responsibility for your childrens behavior. I always make sure my children have colors or something in the car (or suggest playing games such as I Spy) to keep them occupied and redirected. If you know your children get sleepy or cranky at a certain time, don't take them out shopping with you during said time.

I think hitting kids is more an avenue for parents to vent their own frustration rather than an effective way of disciplining children. I always found that a raised voice was effective enough with mine.
