I was spanked as a child, and I came out fine. However, my dad did make it very clear when he was done that he had no desire to do that. I think that slapping your child on their backside to settle them down is fine. Now, if you're going to start slapping them all over the place becase you lost your temper, then, well... that's a whole other story.
I think it's silly when people say spanking your child is a form of abuse. How else are you going to get their attention when they're throwing a tantrum? It's alot less abusive to spank than to scream your head off at them.
