One time American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson has said that she spanks her children when they misbehave and sees nothing wrong with it.
In America, spanking could be considered child abuse and so Clarkson clarifies what she means by spanking saying she would never hit her kids hard.
“I don’t mean hitting her hard, I just mean a little spanking. My parents spanked me and I did fine in life. I feel fine about it, and I do that as well”.
On doing it in public, Clarkson says there are a lot of people out there who are quick to judge when they see you disciplining your child.
“That’s a tricky thing, when you’re out in public, because then people are like–they think that’s wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking”.
The mother of two revealed that she was spanked as a kid and turned out fine so she uses the same disciplining method on her kids. She also stated that she gives her kids ample warning before resulting to spanking.
“I warn her. I’m like, ‘Hi, I’m going to spank you on your bottom if you don’t stop right now, this is ridiculous,’ and honestly it’s really helped. She doesn’t do that kind of stuff as often”.
