For me spanking is not a form of discipline it is a form of punishment. Spanking only reinforces negative behavior and doesn't teach children how problems can be solved through proper, positive communication. Spanking does not teach children why their behavior was wrong or what they should do instead; it teaches children that the only reason to behave appropriately is to avoid being punished and oftentimes it causes them to become a troubled teen. If you think you can't control your teen at all you can consider sending your teen to troubled teen boarding school.
