Kelly Clarkson: Spanking Her Kids Is Fine; Twitter Disagrees

Kelly Clarkson is facing criticism after she spoke candidly about spanking her 3-year-old daughter when she misbehaves.

"The Voice, literally, it's nearly full circle for me how I started singing", Clarkson, who kickstarted her career on Idol, exclusively told Us Weekly at the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday, January 9.

For now it seems the singer is planning to continue to spank her kids when she thinks the situation demands it. The singer, who got her start as the first victor of "American Idol" in 2001, said that she chose to be on the NBC singing competition over the show that made her career because she loves the blind auditions on "The Voice" better. "I warn [River], I'm like, 'Hi, I'm gonna spank you on your bottom if you don't stop right now".

She added, "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". Others netizens, however, supported the singer's personal parenting decision on how to discipline her children. "I think there's a fine line obviously but I believe in spanking, so you might catch me spanking my child at the zoo".

"My mum would call the principal if I ever ended up in the principal's office and give permission for her to spank me". It's so hard to not drink your punch, and I think a lot of people fall prey to that.

"I'm a Single mom with 3 boys", one reader commented. A/B students, athletes, and very respectful responsible people.

"I know it sounds silly but kids teach you to be a better human". "When they go to school it's my experience working 30 years with children they hit to solve problems. She doesn't do that kind of stuff as often".

Clarkson, 35, shared on that she has engaged in spanking.
