Do you believe in spanking a child?
Not beating... If not, please explain. If so, what are the guidelines you have placed on yourself and your child?
We don't spank our kids. The reason is simple. It's never OK to hit another person. That's what we teach them. We use other techniques for disciplining our kids. My favorite is making them spend time with us when the misbehave.
No we didn't spank our kids. When they were toddlers they may have gotten a swat on the bottom but that stopped one day when I realized I was not trying to teach her anything, I swatted her bottom because I was angry.
We never had any trouble with our kids and they grew up to be wonderful, loving, productive people.
I don't believe in spanking because I don't think that causing a small child pain in order for me to get my point across is right. It just seems so barbaric and offers huge potential for abuse.
No! I do not believe in spanking and I have six nephews who visited me often.
I do not believe in speaking in a loud voice to correct a child.
I always told my nephews if I had to speak to them twice---they would be going home, because they came out to have a good time, and I excepted good manners from them.
And I never had to take one home, and they are such great adults now. And they remember how their Aunt Bobbi never screamed or spanked them, only hugged and kissed them.
