Leah Calvert's Decision to Spank Her Daughter Is Really None of Our Business

Leah Calvert

When it comes to disciplining our kids, we all have to do what we feel is most effective. But on last night's episode of Teen Mom 2, Leah Calvert spanked her daughter Aleeah after she sprayed what appeared to be a can of hairspray all over the place.

Leah gave her a slap on the backside to let her know her behavior was not acceptable, and believe it or not, she's actually getting support on Twitter for doing so.

Here's what a couple of her followers had to say about it:

But even though she does have people in her corner, there are bound to be other fans who were a bit appalled after seeing Leah spank her child. 

Personally? I go back and forth with how I feel about it. I was spanked as a kid and turned out perfectly fine -- but I have never used spanking to discipline my son. Something about it just doesn't feel right to me -- although I have never looked back on my own childhood and thought that my parents did anything wrong by getting a little physical.

I know that sounds really wishy-washy, since most moms are strongly for or against spanking, but it's true. I can't seem to make up my mind.

But as far as Leah's concerned? She's a great mom -- and she should be the one to decide what is right for her kids. To each her own, right?

Do you spank your children?
