When I was a Scout leader, the kids who were the problems came from homes with no discipline of any kind. That, in my opinion, is just as much child abuse as physical abuse. If spanking is done right (not abusively) it can be effective. If "talking to" is done right, it too can be effective. The key is consistency, love and making sure the child understands what the punishment is about. Too many parents today want to either totally ignore their children or else "whack 'em cause they must have done something". Both extremes are, or should be, a crime.

We raised 4 sons to adulthood and spanking was used on occassion. It was NOT common. We reserved it for the most serious situations. Our rule on spanking was with the open, bare hand, never use an "implement" of any kind. We spanked for things the kids did that were dangerous that they had already been told not to do but did anyway and for acts of wilfull disobedience. In total we gave spankings to 2 of the boys, (the twins) one time and to our youngest once. It was such a rare occurrance that when it did happen they knew it was serious. It was always followed by a talk a little later. Our basic belief was to give them few "things" , teach them they must earn what they want and supply unlimited pats on the back and hugs. We now have 5 grandchildren and they're being raised in a similar way. They're well behaved and wonderful kids. Looking around it appears to me that children are more of an "accessory" to too many parents, something to bring out, dust off and show off on holidays and for events and irrelevant the rest of the time. Careers and personal wants come first. The worship of the dollar and devotion to material goodies seems to be the focus of far too many lives.
