Should be obvious  
Spanking your children is hitting your children.

Very well said.

My father said that with each child he raised, he used corporeal punishment less. He finally decided what this author says -- spanking is assault. If he would never hit his wife or a co-worker, why was it OK to hit a child?!

I hit a child once. I was on my knees talking to an angry four year old, and he slapped me across the face. Knocked my glasses off. I slapped him back. We stared at each other in horrified silence for a heartbeat, and then we both burst into tears. We hugged and sobbed and I swore to never do that again.
