I was at a public event my six year old wasn't listening & not even being safe SO I yelled at her then when that didn't work I lightly hit her on her forehead. Some lady came up to my husband & told him he better make sure that I stop abusing my kid. So he gets all upset & tells me lets leave. My 10yr old had to tell me what was going on. I come up to the lady who said I was abusive & try to talk nice to her. Only she keeps talking over me telling me how her husband is a officer & how I'm physically & verbally abusive to my kids... she tells me how she was abused..well I was abused so I tell her abuse is when you leave marks,broken bones,choking etc. I know I didn't do anything wroung, but the whole thing caused my husband & I to fight. It ruined the rest of the day. I normally use time-outs or taking stuff away rarely do I spank or tap my kids & they have even told me it dosn't hurt NOT something a abused kid says.
Just don't listen to what other ppl say. They are your children. Some ppl can be so anal. The problem is that ppl are worried about such Petty stuff. I think there is nothing wrong with scolding your child or even giving them a spanking. I would have a talk with my husband. That no matter what happens that he needs to have your back. I know that he might have just done all that fighting because he felt embarrassed. I would have told her to shove it. But in this day and age. You really have to be careful how you discipline your child in public. I wouldn't let it hurt my feelings
