Should parents be allowed to spank their kids? A child should definitely be spanked of course by the parent or guardian because a firm spanking teaches one not to do something bad again. A simple pop across the wrists or on the hand could possibly save a child's life in certain situations. A pop on the wrists or a pop on the butt is something the child will more likely remember far more than such of a "stern talking to" or a time out.

Then later down the road when they go to do the same thing they will remember what happened the first time they did wrong and will of course know the consequences of doing wrong.
