My close girlfriend recently shared with me that her husband spanks their children, often with a leather belt, when they misbehave. I’m unsure how I feel about this. I know spanking is a touchy subject, but the fact they use an instrument to hit them with (other than a hand) really disturbs me.
The kids have a good life and are well cared for but I’m unsure how to take knowing they’re being spanked every few months with a belt. Looking for guidance on how to proceed…. to me it’s abuse. To others it clearly is not.
