Spanking a child is as abusive and counter productive at 16 yrs as it is at one year.
In my opinion it is. Take away something they value, like myspace, or phone time. Or ground them.
Personally I think so. At that age, it hurt me more to be away from my friends than 10 seconds from "the belt." Take away his car, phone, a weekend!My mom once asked me when I got in trouble, what would I rather have, a spanking or grounding. I told her spanking, so....she grounded me.
Yeah it might be too old. They might start sublimating that and using that in their interactions withother people. You can always deprive them of things they want instead. Take away cable, the internet websites you know they can't live without, their "secret stash" for long enough and they'll get it together generally.
ya a little to old so what ya can do is ground them that means no friends over no going to friends. take away phone privileges that means taking their cell if they have one. you can take their favorite thing to do away like video games,internet use,car if have license, tv privileges just whatever they like to do. I probably wouldn't take all away at once though that could cause problems between the two of you. just take a cupel things away at one punishment.
Unfortunately, they really ARE too old to be spanked, even with the dreaded hairbrush.Take away privileges and assign LOTS of hard, dirty, yucky housework and yard work.( my daughter would rather do anything than clean out the fridge, mop the floors, wash the trash cans ,and wash out the litterbox! Worse than a spanking any day! )
