Kelly Clarkson: I'm 'not above' spanking my two children

Kelly Clarkson: I'm 'not above' spanking my two children”

Clarkson defended her decision, noting that her mom and dad disciplined her the same way when she was growing up in Texas. "I'm from the South, 'ya'll, so we get spankings", she said. Comedian and The Mindy Project co-star Fortune Feimster returned the favor, tweeting that she recently met Clarkson and "fan girled hard", reminding anyone who used to watch her on Chelsea Lately that she and fellow Lately panelist comedian Josh Wolf would frequently talk about how much they loved Kelly's music on the the show. "I mean just a spanking".

Raising daughter River Rose and son Remy, singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson has known her share of mom shamers. "I'm a well-rounded individual with a lot of character, so I think it's fine". "I warn [River], I'm like, 'Hi, I'm gonna spank you on your bottom if you don't stop right now".

Clarkson said she believes there is a "fine line", when it comes to spanking, but told the Rochester-based radio station that "I do believe in spanking, so you might catch me spanking my child at the zoo".

For now it seems the singer is planning to continue to spank her kids when she thinks the situation demands it.

Clarkson has two children with her husband Brandon Blackstock and she's the stepmother to two other children. Glad there are still parents out there that set limits for their kids and give consequences when needed. "Spanking in a controlled manner and with loving correction can be a very good thing".

The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend spanking, and has cited research showing the practice can make kids aggressive later on and is linked to mental health issues. Instead of using corporal punishment, child development experts seem to agree that the best way to deal with a kid in the throes of a temper tantrum is to remain firm while also expressing compassion.
