Re: Feel very guilty about spanking my 6 year old daugther.

Your feeling guilty shows that you care and love your child. You're obviously frustrated and at your breaking point. (I personally do not support spanking or other types of physical handling as discipline.) Perhaps you can think about the situation and how you could've handled it differently next time and take a different approach such as "time out" with having given a previous warning to the behavior. Please also don't consider the child as "bad" but instead the behavior of the child as "uncooperative" or such. For those who call a child "bad", it can be very wearing on their self-esteem.
