I don't have kids yet so I don't know what its actually like, but in theory I do not plan on spanking them.
I was spanked as a kid and I turned out okay, but I remember a lot of years as a kid when I feared my dad. I don't think that's really a healthy relationship. I'd like to cultivate respect, trust and safety, not fear.
I have raised and trained dogs with no violence and only positive reinforcement, so I don't see why kids have to be different. I guess I really can't know until I have them though.
