Spanking Teenagers

Sorry if I am not supposed to be posting in this forum, but I am interested in the opinions of those who parent teens.
Do you think that spanking teens is appropriate and effective?

Maybe a swat on the bottom, but no, not spanking.
Spanking is degrading, and I don't think it works with a teenager.

I believe that spanking a teen is neither effective or appropriate. When they reach that age there is sooo much more that can be used to punish them. Phone priveleges, internet use, sleepovers, going to friends house...anything along those lines. I believe once they have reached 9 or 10 they are then too old for spankings.

I'm not a parent but I don't think spanking a teenager helps not to mention it's degrading. Spanking works for younger children who you have to teach right from wrong but a teenager needs other types of punishments.

absolutely not, i am not the parent of a teenager, but I feel like that is so disrespectful toward the teen. it is extremely degrading. my parents grounded us when we were teenagers, took away privelages but never spanking.

This sums it up pretty good !

So far, the responders of this thread have not advocated corporal punishment for teens, but one might argue that from a biblical perspective it is the correct method of discipline for ALL minors... What would you say to that?

I do not believe that in the Bible does it says ALL MINORS are to be spanked. It says spare the rod, spoil the child. I am almost 30 years old, but Ill be you know what if my father lifted his hand to spank me. I am still his child.
A child is no longer considered to be a minor at 18, but is still a teenager. Spankings for 13-17? It doesn't strike me as being a sensible thing to do in the least.
Just as the others said, there is a time where most parents understand that spanking is no longer appropriate nor is it effective.
