Quote of the day

"Spanking does for a child's development what wife-beating does for a marriage."
- Comments by Parents and Teachers Against Violence in Education (PTAVE)



  1. It's funny cuz non-spankers will think, "Oh, yeah, that's right!" and spankers will think, "No, it's totally different." I've found that spanking is one of those topics that people generally do NOT change their mind on, unfortunately. Although, I did change my husband's mind about it! :)

  2. I think it is possible to change people's minds, but only those who are inclined to revise their opinions, and sadly they are indeed few

  3. very true.

    I've got my husband on 'we'll see if it is necessary' which I am willing to live with because it is not necessary, and our little one is a real charmer. I often catch myself thinking 'try spanking that sweet and obviously sorry ass, daddy'.
