Seeing the headline...Kate spanks child...made me wonder.
Do/have you spanked your kids??
Sad to say, yes!!
Eloise gets the odd swat on the butt. Addison however gets regular spankings & it makes not a darn bit of difference, but I can't think of how else to discipline him.
I read, on another board I was lurking on, a mother describe spanking her 6 yr old child as "sending him after the belt" & then "Painting his back porch red" twice in one day for not listening to her when she put him in time out!!! Now that I do not agree with.
What Helen is describing is BEATING your child, aka CHILD ABUSE.
I can't even believe a person would post that on a board!
Anyway, I have spanked my kids. Just a swat on the butt as a last resort or if they ran in the street or something that could hurt them.
I am so tired of hearing about Jon and Kate. Ugh! lol
I haven't read that headline yet.
I'm not against spanking, per se, but it's not sommething that's a regular occurance around here.
I have spanked, not something I have done since they got older.
