My sister and I have been discussing spanking this week. That is one habit that is hard to break once it is started. I should know. One thing I have learned over the 8 years as a parent is that treating children with the respect and decency is what works. When we hit, they hit. Period. When we yell, they yell. They mirror us. If want a better world we have to start with ourselves first.
My view of spanking
Spanking is the only way he'll listen
My heart hurts for kids who don't have options. They have to put up and shut up. :O(
Love to all who have made the transition from control parenting to respectful parenting. It can be done.
