Kelly Clarkson Admits She Spanks Her 3-Year-Old Daughter

She's not here for your criticism either

No topic is more hotly debated among parents than whether it’s OK to spank or not to spank. Well, that or the breast vs bottle debate. Or the ‘to co-sleep or not’ debate. Or even the attachment parenting debate. OK, let’s face it, parenting in general is often hotly debated.  Celebrities usually keep mum on controversial topics, But no this time. Singer Kelly Clarkson just opened up the spanking debate and we did not see that coming!

People feel very strongly about spanking. While many of us grew up with the form of physical punishment, it’s largely looked down upon these days as an effective method of discipline.

Just the word ‘spanking’ makes us think of angry parents using belts to deliver a nasty blow. Or taking their child over the knee to deliver a stinging smack.

Some parents have even been charged with domestic assault for spanking their children. Others have been ostracized publicly for simply suggesting a child may need a spanking. There are even many countries who have made the act of spanking illegal.

Kelly Clarkson revealed in a recent interview that she utilizes the method of discipline herself. While some are agreeing with the singer, others are calling it child abuse.
