Kelly Clarkson Reveals She’s Okay With Spanking Her Children
US singer Kelly Clarkson opened up in a recent radio interview where she said spanking is part of the discipline she uses with her two children.
The 35 year old country music star said, “My parents spanked me and I did fine in life and I feel fine about it.”
Feeling the need to defend her decision Clarkson made sure she made it clear that it was only ever a light spanking. “I don’t mean like hitting her hard, I just mean spanking,” the singer said. “I warn her. I’m like, Hi, I’m gonna spank you on your bottom if you don’t stop right now. Like this is ridiculous.”
Her decision to spank may have something to do with her upbringing as Clarkson revealed that while it may be frowned upon by many families it’s something very deeply ingrained from where she comes from.
“I’m from the South, y’all, so we get spankings,” she said. “My mum would call the principal if I ever ended up at the principal’s office and give her permission to spank me…I’m a well rounded individual with a lot of character so I think it’s fine.”
Although she may see nothing wrong with it, Clarkson is aware that others don’t share her point of view.
“So that’s a tricky thing when you’re out in public, cause then people are like, you know, they think thats wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking.”
Clarkson has two kids with husband Brandon Blackstock, River Rose,3 and Remington Alexander, 1. They will most likely be her as she revealed that she got her tubes tied and Blackstock had a vasectomy following Remy’ birth.
