Kids can get annoying and are a sure test to one's patience at times. But is it right to spank them? My opinion: Definitely NO It's easier to make kids understand with a talk and mutual respect than to regret the violent anger. But if you have to deal with an extremely outside the scope kid, I guess "Adi Odhavra Mari, Annan Thambiyum Odhava Maata"(Even brothers can't help as much as a beatings can). But this must be the last resort to discipline and get the kids attention. What do you say ladies?
