    ABSOLUTELY!! Otherwise they learn they can behave badly in public. If you are worried about someone passing judgment, bring them into the bathroom and spank them.

    Legally yes but I don't think it's the correct way to address a discipline problem in public ,better methods are there .

    If it isn't, that automatically raises the question whether spanking is okay at all. After all if it's such a normal and fine form of discipline, why would it be shameful in public?

      I recall getting spanked in public as a child and it surely was a humiliating experience .

    No, that would be embarrassing for the parent and the child.

      I agree from experience ,getting swatted in front of a store full of people really put the "shame" in the game  -lol!

    When everyone has a camera and instant judgement? It wouldn't be a smart thing to do. 

    I don't think spanking is even necessary if you are any good at parenting.

    Yes, modern day society has become pacified, nothing like a good ol smack on the buns to discipline your child!
