You said parents are being too much of a friend. I completely concur. After my first spanking I went upstairs to my room, but before I got there I heard my dad start crying. At the time I though he just hurt his hand (even though he didn't hit me that hard it felt like it), and I shrugged it off thinking it was just instant karma. By now my dad has admitted to me that he hated hitting his kid, and even though it was lightly on the butt it was emotionally difficult for him to do. However, after that occurrence I never did it again because I can deal with losing privileges, but I would hate to be sore. This is just one example where my family stepped over being a "friend" and thought about what is best for me, and what will get to to me effectively without me having permanent scorn towards them.
I have the best parents. Where other adults saw fragility they saw strength. They knew I could handle getting spanked because that's how they raised me. In a loving household held up by firm rules where some punishments hurt. Don't raise your kid to think that when he is disrespectful,hits,lies, or is just mean that he is going to get his toys taken, or my favorite "put in the corner". Because if he takes that attitude to school a kid is going to beat the crap out of him.
I'm not saying I owe everything to spanking. My parents did a lot to raise me, and spanking barely ever occurred. However, I knew if I rolled my eyes at them, put my hands on them, or any of this other nonsense I see everyday. They wouldn't hesitate to make it occur again.
