My son 5,5 so much afraid of me to spank him. We never spank him, we do not belive in spanking, and we'll never ever spank him.

So, where this fear is coming from ? Is it phase or anxiety ?
Thank U.

  • perhaps he has heard about it at school, you don't have to spank to come across as aggressive. My hubby has never spanked any of our kids but he has an army sergeant major kind of voice and when he yells they quiver.
    Also if he acts afraid and so you reassure him that you won't spank him, he is getting some really good attention there, and it deflects the focus off whatever he had done wrong. Smart Cookie
