Kelly Clarkson grew up in Texas with rules, a strong mother and spankings. Which is why she’s decided that spankings are okay for her kids, too.
Kelly recently Radio.com that’s choosing to spank her kids, River Rose and Remington because, “my parents spanked me, and I did fine in life and I feel fine about it. 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.”
She also explained that, though spankings in public are hard, she’ll do it, if necessary, “So that’s a tricky thing when you’re out in public, ’cause then people are like, you know, they think that’s wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking.”
And it turns out, Kelly didn’t just get spanked at home, she got it at school, too, with her mother’s blessing, “I’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.”
