Even though we are in the US we were friends with a couple who was very worried about anyone finding out their kids were spanked such as their Doctor. They lived in a very liberal/blue state and feared being reported for child abuse. Because of that they always used the word "grounding" with their kids even though they meant spanking. This was when their kids were little - under 10 years of age. That way if anyone ever asked the kids how they were punished they would just say that their parents grounded them.
So for them it was always "Is mommy going to have to ground you?"
