Spanking: its not just for fetishists anymore. Over the years, physically reprimanding a child has fallen out of fashion. What once was taken for granted as solid child rearing techniques now brings societal damnation and sparks the issue of what kind of punishment is acceptable when raising children. Both sides of the swatting fence partake in non-violent sparring over the spanking debate. What is okay? Tapping the hand of a 9-month old who is reaching for something potentially hurtful? Washing out the potty-mouth of a 10 year-old with soap? Punctuating angry words with slaps? Frustrated parents ask for advice on coming up with alternate punishments and coping techniques others defend their right to lay their hands on their children. Corporal punishment and its effects are hotly contested with proponents of both sides stating their cases. - D.L.J.
