Is it acceptable to spank children?

Yes, it's a good tool.

It should only be used on older children.

No, violence is not an acceptable form of punishment.

No Proposal Could Stop Hitting With Objects

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Parents can still spank their children in California.

San Francisco Bay-area Assemblywoman Sally Lieber has abandoned her campaign to make spanking a crime.

She said she is still opposed to spanking, but Lieber said the votes just aren't there to change the law. Instead, she's introducing legislation that would make it a crime to hit children with such items as a belt, switch or stick.

Lieber's anti-spanking bill attracted nationwide attention.

Conservatives and family values groups criticized it as government interference in family matters, and it was the subject of a parody on "Saturday Night Live."
