"Spankings (not beatings, don't be an idiot) are absolutely necessary in the rearing of a child. Only for the worst offenses mind you. I don`t think stealing, or things that lead to felonies in later life, can be solved by taking away their juice and putting them on time out for 5 minutes."
I wouldn`t do any of those things if my child stole something. I would talk to her about why it`s wrong, then march her back to the store/person she stole from, make her admit what she did, and return the item. THEN ground her. Sounds a lot more effective than hitting her.
