Do you believe in spanking your child or are you a time-out kind of parent? Is it okay to discipline your child in public or should you wait till you get home? How far is too far?

Join Asha Zuri? and Alex Primo? Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore parenting and discipline in the Black community. Do we spank too much or are we too relaxed in the discipline department? What do we need to do to get our children straight?

Here's some opinions courtesy of the Huffington Post to get things started:

  • "I still believe 'spare the rod, spoil the child!' Know your child and what 'works' with him/her." -- Yolanda C.
  • "I'm not going to let the justice system reprimand my child, I'll do it myself, thank you very much." -- Pas Jb
  • "Stop the violence!" -- Roxy N. Melody D.
  • "There's a difference between a beating and a whoopin! I whooped my kids, I never beat them. And I'd do it again!" -- Margo M. 
  • "When did the 'rod' become a belt or switch? Oh, during slavery when blacks were beat with whips. As we have progressed in society, we know more, and can understand child development better." -- Timmie J. W. Jr.
  • "Was Dr. King beaten? What did he become? Was he a peaceful man or was he angry?" -- Samuel S.
