I Was Spanked Poll

Since I can remember, there has been a hugh debate on how spanking children effects children. This poll is to help find out if spanking really leads to violence, as so many people say. If you were spanked as a child, please fill out the following poll. If you weren't spanked, please fill out the I Was Never Spanked Poll, and feel free to check out the results of this one. Thanks.

NOTE: For this poll spanking will be defined as striking the bottom as a form of punishment or discipline. It does not include hitting any other part of the body or hitting which is not intended as a form of discipline or punishment.

Do you realize that this poll is only for people who were spanked as a child, and that there is another poll for those who weren't?
