Spanking…yay or nay?

Spanking is still a very controversial and heated discussion for many. My belief is that spanking doesn’t teach kids anything useful looking forward. When would they be able to use the tool of hitting someone in an appropriate setting? All healthy parenting tools should be applicable to other situations and parents are constantly modeling how to handle themselves and their feelings. Feel free to disagree with me. What are your thoughts about this article?
