    My boyfriend and I were discussing the possibility of having kids a few months ago.In the discussion,we began talking of how we wanted to discipline our kids.He wanted to spank them,while I did not, and the idea made me very anxious.I was physically abused as a child.I remember being terrified,and being punished in that way seemed like an endless torture to me.I always saw it as normal though.I told him of my past and has agreed not to.But the whole discussion has still caused a distrust of him and people who spank their kids.No offense to those who do so.From those who have experienced both regular non abusive spanking and abuse,are the emotional effects the same?Why can I not shake this distrust that occurred after the talk about regular spanking when I've been around it my whole life, and it never bothered me?I 've been thinking about it everyday since,and I don't know why.
