Kelly Clarkson defends spanking her kids, takes social media backlash

Kelly Clarkson is facing backlash on social media after revealing she spanks her 3-year-old daughter River. They say stuff where you're like 'Damn.' They call you out.

Kelly Clarkson attends the NBC Universal TCA Winter Press Tour on January 9, 2018, in Pasadena, California.

"My parents spanked me and I did fine in life and I feel fine about it", she explained.

In an interview with Today, Clarkson, a mother of four, opened up about parenting and said that she is "not above" spanking her children if they misbehave, a practice she said people "aren't necessarily into". "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 then joked: "Wine is necessary".

The "American Idol" victor clarified, however, when discussing spanking her 3-year-old daughter: "And I don't mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking".

Fresh off her appearance at the Golden Globes, Kelly Clarkson is still delighting her fans with stories of who she met that night. "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".

She said: "They're great, though".

Speaking to E!, she added: "I think when you're younger and, especially in this kind of industry where everybody's always applauding you or even if they're talking bad or good, they're still talking about you". Effective discipline is "as simple as saying, 'No, and I know you're upset, ' or, 'No, and I understand your frustrations'". "They're watching every moment, not only me at home but me sitting here with y'all". "I'm from the South, 'ya'll, so we get spankings", she said. "I'm a well-rounded individual with a lot of characters so I think it's fine".
