How do you feel about this? At dinner, with two other couples, one child ( 19 months) repeatedly picked up spoon and threw it. His parents told him no each time and put it back down on the table. The child did it again and our other friend got low at eye level to the kid, put his finger in his face and told him " No, if you do it again you're going to timeout in the car alone" The kid didnt do it again and the kids parents seemed ok (those two couples go way way back 15 yrs or so).
I just don't think i would be ok with that, and I hope that it never comes up. I guess in reality my son wont always listen, but I don't think I want that guy disciplining my kid.
Would you be ok with it? If obviously what you were doing wasn't working? How long do you have to know somebody before it becomes acceptable?

Non physical discipline is ok to me. Now if they tried to spank my child, I would have a problem with that.

Would you be ok with it? It depends on the situation, if my child is doing something that will harm her then I'm fine with a close friend saying something, but not telling my child what their punishment will be.
If obviously what you were doing wasn't working? I'd ask my friends what works for them, try didn't things to see what works, and always give explanation why you're disciplining them.
How long do you have to know somebody before it becomes acceptable? For a couple or few years, or more. And also to me it depends on my friendship with the other person, and how comfortable I am with them and how they are.
