I think it really depends on the family dynamics. In more conservative traditional families, the mother is the primary caretaker of the children, and it makes sense to me that disciplining children would be included in this role.

Unfortunately, I think there is a tendency for some of these mothers to decide that spanking is the father's job, probably because they are too tenderhearted to do it effectively themselves.

The problem I see here is that it's unfair to the fathers. The mother gets to be the caretaker while the father is resented as the disciplinarian. Imagine how a kid would feel about their father if their primary method of interacting with him is being spanked.

I'm a single mom though, so the task of discipline is solely on me.
