Most parents today have turned away from corporal punishment.
But Nick Cannon vowed on his Twitter on Saturday that he’ll do what it takes to keep his 22-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan from acting out.
‘I was spanked therefore I shall spank,’ he wrote on the microblogging site.
‘My momma did a good job! LOL.’
The 32-year-old, who has been married to singer Mariah Carey since 2008, further explained his tough tactics, ranting that he’ll be sure to avoid spoiling his tots.
‘Spare the rod, spoil the child! That’s what’s wrong with the kids today, The time out generation has no real discipline,’ he wrote, capping off his statement with the hashtag ‘#oldmanvoice.’
Although the TV star was clearly joking as he said: ‘I got my belt out already! It’s ready.’
On who’s the tougher parent, Nick was quick to put Mariah in the back seat. ‘Who do you think? Me! I don’t play that!’
He continued, saying while Mariah may not make the move, he’s not afraid to get physical when his children get out of line.
