Nowhere in Scripture does it condone child abuse, but it does recommend disciplining your children. A little spanking is meant to teach children right from wrong. If you don’t discipline your child, there is a great chance that your child grows up to be lazy, disrespectful and unlawful thinking they can do whatever they want. Spanking is done out of love in their best interest so they will grow to be respectful of God & citizens of the world.
Withholding corporal punishment from an unruly disrespectful child is a huge mistake; look at the result. The promotion of reasoning and talking to the child only is a lie of the devil.

"For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby."
