Christian Parenting | Child Discipline | Is spanking ok?
I get this question a few times a month from Christian Parents: Can I spank my kids? It comes in different forms
1. Can I spank my kids or is spanking ok? this sounds like you are asking are you allowed to spank your kids. The question seems to be asking IS it biblical or even is it allowed by law. Will I be charged for spanking a child if you do?
2. Should I spank my kids? Which seems to be more should I actually do this? Is this the right way to discipline my kids?
Parenting is hard. Christian parenting just might be harder as we come from a different worldview than much of society. We must grow our parenting skills to be able to learn how to discipline our kids properly. This video is talking about only one concept of child discipline ( ie spanking). We will have to look another time at how do we discipline a child and other good questions.
