Disciplining debate? What type of discipline do you intend using for your child?



  • Physical discipline
  • Time outs and what not...no physical
  • Whatever the situation calls for

I personally don't believe in physical discipline, ie spanking. I chose time-outs.

My parents used physical discipline. I was whipped with belts, twitches, anything handy sometimes. I don't resent them now for it, and I don't think that I turned out bad. But I remember sometimes I would burn with hate after being hit. I use to argue with them once I got older, that I didn't hit them, and I deserved the same respect that I showed them. Because of it all I have decided to not physical reprimand my children.


My DH agrees that we'll use the time out method. But in certain situations will choose different methods. For example, my DH bit his mother once...she bit him back and he stopped lol. My older brother spanks my neice. I disagree with it, and one time voiced my opinion. It wasn't worth the hassle. Everyone is going to raise their kids however they feel is best. :)
