Kelly Clarkson Defends Spanking Discipline With Her Children

Pop star Kelly Clarkson has admitted she sometimes spanks her children if they misbehave.

The Since U Been Gone singer spoke about her tough parenting style during a radio interview.

She told listeners she was smacked as a child, and that she does the same to daughter River Rose. She is also mom to Remington, one.

Kelly said: “My parents spanked me and I did fine in life. I’m from the south y’all so like, we get spankings.”

“My mum would call the principal if I ever ended up in the principle ‘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.”

She says she warns River Rose before spanking her and believes it has been an effective deterrent.

She said: “I’m like, ‘Hi, I’m going to spank you on the bottom if you don’t stop right now, this is ridiculous,’ and honestly it’s really helped.”

“She doesn’t do that kind of stuff as often.”

However Kelly is aware that her strict parenting approach is not popular with everyone, and she is currently facing a a lot of mixed feedback regarding it online.
