To spank or not to spank. There’s been an ongoing debate on whether or not it’s appropriate for parents to spank their children as a means of punishment for years and the hot-button topic was raised once again following the news that NFL star Adrian Peterson had used a switch to chastise his four-year-old son. These celebrities certainly would object because they are against raising their hands to discipline their children.
First Lady Michelle Obama gave up her career when her husband decided to run for the highest office in the land. Mrs. Obama focused on becoming a fulltime mother to their two daughter Sasha and Malia and during an interview, she revealed that she had tried her hand at using a spanking as a form of punishment but it didn’t work for her. “I did it one or two times and just found it to be completely ineffective because it was less about teaching a lesson and more about my own [feelings],” Mrs. Obama revealed. “Malia was younger, probably 4.”
