To Spank or Not to Spank?
What to do when the kids misbehaves. My in-laws believe in spanks. I do not. I be believe in other forms of punishment then hit the the child. Like for example: Taking things away, Time-Out, Sending them to their room or ground them and etc. I think spanking a child is just teaching them it is ok. to hit people. What type of discipline do you believe in?
Toddler runs out into the street, I am going to give a swat on the butt because I want the toddler to associate running into the street with pain.
Child touches the stove top after being told not to, I am going to smack their hand because I want the child to associate touching the stove top with pain.
I want the child to understand that certain things are dangerous and will physically hurt you.
That said, not all kids are alike. What works for one may not work for another. While I don't think it should be a first choice or used liberally it's not my right to judge.
