Good point Vic. :wink:Kemo's mamma said:I was spanked and I thought twice about doing something... :?
I did only when I could not take it anymore....I am a screamer (still am) that is my thing. I raised my daughter by myself for 9 years we are very close. Well actually I still raise her myself as hubby does not get involved......anyway we are tight and I am thankful for that but we are too much like friends at times and that has proven to be a problem. :roll:imkari said:Good point Vic. :wink:Kemo's mamma said:I was spanked and I thought twice about doing something... :?
It's so hard raising a child and trying to be a good parent because we aren't told the 'right way'. I guess I'm just trying to earn her respect and give her respect now so that our relationship is strong for the future, for her 'teenage' years that I dread. :lol:
Did you spank your daughter?
I know on the supernanny show they do exactly what clare has suggested and it works - I'm not really smacked if I am naughty - my mom just has a "firm" word with me lol - but I'm not that naughty :wink: :lol: :wink:ozzysmom said:oooh touchy subject
They actually have "No smacking Laws" all over the UK - my personal opinion on the subject from looking after 2 young cousins and working in playgroups and playschemes is that the minute you have to smack a child is when youve "lost" I believe you should speak to them and explain what they have done wrong and use time outs or a box where you take a fave toy away and put it in the box if they do something wrong - I think Spanking should be a last resort and not an initial reaction - I for one wont be spanking my children - but I was smacked as a child if I did something wrong and it hasnt effected me in any way :wave:
