Kelly Clarkson Admits She Will Resort to Spanking Her Children Once They Become Unruly

It isn’t easy to become a parent since raising a child would require hard work. We ensure that our kids are disciplined and independent. In this way, we can be guaranteed they are away from danger. However, it raises controversy if a way of disciplining our kids would require spanking them. People claim that spanking is a form of abuse to children, while parents address it as a form of child development and correction of a child’s wrongdoing. It is to teach our kids a lesson.

Singer Kelly Clarkson has always encountered questions about her parenting styles during interviews. Since she is a mother of 2 adorable kids, River Rose and Remy, and a stepmother to two older kids, she openly explains that spanking is her form of discipline.

According to Kelly, she spanks her kids, and it is a very effective way of teaching them a lesson about wrongdoing.

“I’m not above a spanking, which people aren’t necessarily into,” she admitted in her interview. “And I don’t mean like hitting her hard. I just meant a spanking.”

Kelly does not deny spanking her kids when needed since, according to her, that parenting style works. Spanking is just spanking, and she clarified that she does not hurt her kids.

In an interview with ET Canada, she talked about seeing kids who were not raised properly by their parents, who were not disciplined and grew up to be spoiled.

“You know what, where I grew up, it works, and where I grew up, people are kind, and they open doors, and they say, ‘thank you’, and they say ‘please,’ and they’re respectful,” Kelly shared her interview.

Kelly also clarified that she does not spank her kids when it’s unnecessary. She gives them warnings first and spanks them if they do not heed her the first time. She has a lot of patience when it comes to her kids.

“I warn her! I’m like, ‘Hi, I’m going to spank you on your bottom if you don’t stop right now like, this is ridiculous.”

It is never Kelly’s intention to hurt, manipulate, or control her kids, as other people assumed. Spanking was a form of discipline that Kelly grew up with, and she knows it works as a parenting style, so she is imposing it on her children.

However, as a celebrity, she shared that it would be improper to spank her kids in public since she is aware of this new generation.

“… that’s a tricky thing when you’re out in public, ‘cause then, people are like, you know, they think that’s wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking,” Kelly told Audacy.

Parents have their own form of disciplining kids, and they know if the method works in their family or not. After all, parents have the same wishes for their children – to grow up respectful, considerate of others, and full of compassion.
