To spank or not to spank—that is the question on many parents’ minds in these ever-changing and progressive times. Back in the day, if parents didn’t smack their child every now and again (when he or she deserved it, of course) most parents judged them harshly. These days, it’s quite the opposite. There’s things like “behavior charts” and “time outs,” foreign and terrible concepts for a lot of American grandparents.
On tomorrow’s new episode of Tim Allen’s hit ABC series Last Man Standing, this generational dichotomy plays out when Boyd’s great-grandfather (guest star Robert Forster) gives the boy “one quick swat.” Check out this exclusive preview below to see how Mike (Tim Allen) and his wife (Nancy Travis) handles the situation with Boyd and his parents. And be sure to tune in to the full episode of Last Man Standing tomorrow, Dec. 6 at 8 pm ET on ABC.
