    No. At 17, she's basically an adult.

    It all depends on what she did and for discipline - is spanking necessary.

    Of course not. Every study ever done on corporal punishment proves that it's only effective up until about age three or four. Once a kid can understand language it becomes more a precursor to creating a violent child than correcting the behavior of that child.

    No, assaulting people is a crime.  To assault your child, no matter how young or old they are, is an emotional crime.

    There are so many other better ways to discipline a teenager, other than hitting them.

    A good parent would take away their driving privileges or ground them from going out with friends, take away their electronics including their phone or make them do chores.  Assaulting children does not net them results.

    Parents who hit their children are out of control and do it as a result of bad parenting and their own frustrations.

    Yes, when she was seven.

    I never spanked any of my kids at any age. There are better ways to discipline.

    No, there are many other better ways to make her regret her bad behavior.

    I doubt spanking a 17 year old would have much effect. Just backhand her face when she needs it.

    Of course not. Violence is almost always wrong and it sets a bad example.
