Kelly Clarkson admits that she spanks her children, River Rose, eight, and son Remington Alexander, six.

Clarkson said in a 2018 interview, “I’m not above a spanking, which people aren’t necessarily into. I don’t mean hitting her hard; I just mean a spanking.”

The talk show host continued, “That’s a tricky thing when you’re out in public because then people are like, they think that’s wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking.” Clarkson says she was spanked as a child and felt she “turned out fine.”

Clarkson says spanking her children never comes without a warning, “I warn her. I’m like, ‘Hi, I’m going to spank you on your bottom if you don’t stop right now; this is ridiculous.’ said Clarkson.

Do you spank your children? Why or why not? Do you think it is okay if parents spank their children in public?
