Kelly Clarkson Spanks Her Kids And She Makes No Apologies

"I hope with our two boys and our two girls that they see their parents as successful, loving and respectful people 'cause that's what we want for them".

REUTERS/Win McNameeKelly Clarkson has two kids with husband Brandon Blackstock.

She also said that her parents spanked her as a kid, and she turned out well.

The singer says she understands her parenting technique is not popular and says it's "tricky" when she's out in public and people judge her for it.

The former victor of "American Idol" has two children - 3 year old daughter River Rose and 1 year old son Remington Alexander - with her husband Brandon Blackstock. "I warn [River], I'm like, 'Hi, I'm gonna spank you on your bottom if you don't stop right now". "Now she doesn't really do that kind of stuff as often".

"I'm from the South, ya'll, so we get spankings", Clarkson added, according to This Is Insider. "I mean just a spanking". Then I felt awful with Michelle Williams and the other women standing there. "I'm a well-rounded individual with a lot of character, so I think it's fine". One poster said that spanking is "proven to be detrimental to kids", while others said that it was simply "wrong" and perpetuates "physical fear tactics". When it comes to how she's raising her children, the singer is pretty open, too - regardless of what others might think.

But some weren't so impressed. They'll call you out.

"Instead, use appropriate time outs for young children", the group added. "Discipline older children by temporarily removing favorite privileges, such as sports activities or playing with friends". Effective discipline is "as simple as saying, 'No, and I know you're upset, ' or, 'No, and I understand your frustrations'".

Spanking children remains a hot topic amongst parents, including those in the entertainment industry.
