    I believe there is more harm in the future for the child then helping at the present moment when it comes down to this kind of discipline. I think there are other ways but some parents just like to hit because it makes them feel better. I think they will make any excuse to use this kind of force.

    Today, I think its the grown-ups, namely crooked politicians, greedy exectives and bratty celebrities who are most in need of a trip to the woodshed.

    Instead of the wood shed (we didn´t have one) my mother always went to the kitchen and took the broom. Then she pulled my trousers and my undertrousers down and spanked my bare little ass until i couldn´t sit for a while.
    All screaming begging and crying didn´t help me as my mommy was a consequent and strict person. Thank you mommy.

    i got it with the paddle of a paddle ball that broke til i was ten. I was never taken to the wood shed though. SPANKINGS ROCK.ha. they helped my growth into becoming the man i am today tremendously.

    I was whipped at home a few times until I was 12, but not in a shed. My parents used a yard stick. The beatings were not brutal nor traumatizing. I was never beaten at school, although I knew of several kids who were. I have no kids and I don't know if I would have beaten them.

    I never did the woodshed thing, but my grandma did make ME go and get a "SWITCH" so that she could beat my ass with it.

    Looks some people are taking your question literally rather than the way that you meant it (or at least how I think you meant it). With the 1) urbanization of the U.S. and 2) the advance of modern heating systems real woodsheds are pretty much a thing of the past, and...

    ... with the loss of the ability of parents in the U.S. to actually parent their kids, and with the toxic attack of agencies of child protection against decent parents who spank, the secondary use of woodsheds as a place of behavioral and character formation has also passed.

    While I wasn't taken to a literal woodshed, I was hauled to the figurative woodshed on enough occasions to firmly instill in me the notion that parents were to be both obeyed and respected, that rules were to be followed, and that decent behavior was an expected daily norm. It did me a great deal of good.

    my siblings and I were smacked/spanked if we acted up, but never had a wood shed so...

    It's sort of pathetic what is actually considered child abuse anymore... What's next? will time outs be considered emotionally abusive? :p

    We didn't have a wood shed,my dad sent us to our room to wait for him,when he came in he would have a talk with us or if we were real bad he would put us across his knee and spank us with his open hand.The spanking stung our butt but didn't hurt us,it was meant to hurt our pride,my dad loved us to much to ever really hurt us.He was the best dad in the world to us.He is gone to heaven now,but dad we still love you and miss you.
