Quoting PurpleBama582:" I respect your choice to not spank your children, particularly due to the fact that they can't communicate ... [snip!] ... well. To your parents, it might come across as if you're saying "You screwed me up so I'm doing things completely different." "
Quoting Kyleigh'sMommy12:" first off, let me say this..i completely understand... my dad was loud, and very FORCEFUL with his disciplining. ... [snip!] ... the way he screamed at me. I REFUSE to be the kind of parent he was... so i agree with you 150%. good luck with the family "Thank you, lady! Good on you for being strong and a good mother.
Quoting W.W.:" Oh I didn't mean that anyone who spanks is close minded or is influenced by others. I was saying that ... [snip!] ... with it is because HE in fact is that way...about a lot of things lol. So since he was spanked he sees nothing wrong with it. "
Quoting PurpleBama582:" I was spanked growing up, too, but only as a last resort, or if I had done something REALLY bad, so that's where I stand on spanking. Even then, I avoid it when I can. "I can understand that, and I have spanked them over something they did that could really hurt them. It doesn't work though, not for them.
Quoting *Anners*:" Omg.. Monica of all people needs to shut her damn face. She should've gotten her ass beat so many times. ... [snip!] ... to time outs and taking priveleges. Which is working quite well. If you need me cuz, I'm here. 700 miles away but still here."Thanks cousin!! Lurve youuu!
