I just don't understand why some people do that. JMO! First time I heard my mil threaten one of her grandsons for being naughty followed by a loud slap on the butt and crying not just from embarrasment but pain (left a mark), I just couldnt believe it. I would disown her from my sons life if she ever did that to my son. I have seen this with friends too. an ex friend who babysat for a mutual friend punished and spanked the friend's daughters all the time. the oldest girl once told me she was terrified of her but her mom just yelled at her for expressing those feelings. Just terrible!

I have no problem whatsoever with my family members disciplining my kids. If I didn't like it, they wouldn't be keeping them. Also since water tends to seek its' own level, I have no problem with my friends (associates don't have this right and there's a difference) disciplining my children. Or they with me. Communication is the key. I pick my friends like I pick my fruit carefully. We tend to agree on core issues: It takes a village to raise a child.

For me it depends on the family member. My sister only spanks my kids if they are doing something very wrong but my brother seems to think that no matter what they do they need to be spanked. I don't spank my kids all the time and only for certain things so I don't care about my sister doing it but my brother I do have a problem with. I have told him not to touch my kids.

Next question overall
Do you homeschool? From what grade did you start your children and what grade...
