  • I'd think she was an idiot. One for saying "pank pank" and two for spanking an eight month old.

  • The baby probably liked to throw tantrums. Who knows? I had to get on to my son pretty early on. Even tiny babies are capable of learning discipline and boundries. Not to mention, she might not ever follow through and it might have been a tiny tap. And, it isn't illegal to spank.

  • that she's an idiot, now can a woman spank an 8th month old child much less ask the child if he/she wants it?

  • I would think, stop threatening and just do it already. And I would think, don't talk baby talk to your kid.

  • First of all .. "Pank Pank?" What is it with people and dumbing down words for children. Speak to them intelligently, folks.
    Secondly, she's threatening to spank an eight month old, really? I personally don't believe in spanking, but especially a child that young. Also, if you're going to do it just do it. Stop threatening the kid.
