Did you ever receive spanking as a child?
The American Academy of Pediatrics has concluded that spanking a kid is both damaging and useless as a form of discipline, a practice that has gained controversy. However, some parents continue to vouch for it.
One of those parents is Kelly Clarkson, who not too long ago defended her choice in a radio interview.
River Rose, 8, and Remy, 6, are Kelly’s two children, and she declared that she “is not above spanking” when it comes to discipline. She clarified, “I don’t mean hitting her hard.” “It’s just a little smacking,”
She doesn’t see anything wrong with it because it’s what she grew up with.
“I feel okay about getting spanked by my parents because I’ve done well in life.” Kelly, a native of Texas, stated. “You guys, I’m from the South, so we get spanked.” If I ever found myself in the principal’s office, my mother would give her permission to spank me by calling the principal.I think it’s okay since I’m a really characterful, well-rounded person.
Not only is Clarkson a talented singer-songwriter, author, and TV personality, but she was also recently awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The American Idol singer acknowledged that her approach to parenting is divisive and that it is challenging for her to reprimand her kids in public.
“It can be challenging to discipline someone in public because some may think it’s improper or something, but I don’t see anything wrong with a good spanking,” the woman remarked. “You might catch me spanking my child at the zoo because I do believe in spanking.”
She does, however, give her kids advance warning.
“Hello, this is ridiculous, I’m going to spank you on your bottom if you don’t stop right now, and it’s actually helped,” I said. She doesn’t act in that manner very frequently.
Do you support Kelly Clarkson’s methods of child discipline? Or do you believe that parents should be free to discipline their kids however they see fit?
