Kelly Clarkson opens up about her way of disciplining her children and she doesn't care about the criticism and backlash. The mother of two is quite vocal about her ways of bringing children up and never shy away from speaking up about it.
Kelly Clarkson has always been open about her family life on social media and is quite vocal on her ideas of bringing children up. The award-winning singer often shares cute pictures of her children on her Instagram account and never shames away from acting as a protective mama bear when it comes to her babies.
Clarkson is a mom to son, 1-year-old Remington Alexander and daughter, 3-year old River Rose Blackstock.
Disciplining Children By Spanking
Recently, the 35-year old mother gave a radio interview, in Rochester New York and discussed the topic of parenting and when it comes to disciplining her children Clarkson openly admitted that she disciplines her children in the same conventional way her parents disciplined her, that is by spanking. "I'm not above a spanking, which people aren't necessarily into. And I don't mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking. My parents spanked me, I did fine in life and I feel fine about it. But I do that as well, too."
Defending Her Decision
Defending her decision, Clarkson said, "People are like, you know, they think that’s wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with spanking.'m from the South, y'all, so we get spankings. My mom would call the principal if I ever ended up in the principal's office and give permission for her to spank me. I'm a well-rounded individual with a lot of character, so I think it's fine.
Clarkson Knows How To Handle Her Children
Justifying her decision, Clarkson said that she only spank her children only when she finds it necessary and her children know when it's coming, "I warn [River], I'm like, Hi, I'm gonna spank you on your bottom if you don't stop right now."
From diets to discipline every parent has their own way of bringing up their children and if by spanking Clarkson is able to discipline her children then there is no harm done. The best thing we can do is not question and judge other people's parenting. Obviously, every parent thinks the best for their children.
