My 5yr old had a soccer game today. She took a hard blow to her chest from a ball today. She lost her wind and started crying. She began walking to me on the sidelines, and I told her to shake it off and go to her coach at the bench. That's the rules. I could see she would be fine, and in fact went back in 3mins later.
Well the mom sitting next to me said," you are waaaaay softer than me! If my daughter even starts acting like she is about to cry I tell her to zip it or I will beat her ass when we get home. She took a baseball to the eye and needed stitches. She started whining and the second I threatened to spank her, she stopped."
I looked this lady straight in the eye and told her there is no shame in crying when you are injured, as long as you get up, dust yourself off and get back out there. She had the nerve to tell me I am going to make her a sissy girl.
I picked my chair up and moved. It was either that or I was about to smack her! So, do you spank your kids if they cry over injuries? Am I the only one that thinks this is screwed up?
