i posted a question about my two year old and her refusing time out and was asking advice on what works for other moms and one person said to slap my child on the leg when she hits me. Is that not just going to make her think if she hits me she is going to get hit. A two year old has no way to understand why a mother is hitting them. It seems really said to know that parents hit there toddlers. Well the question is if you spank your child why do you think this works? Have you ever thought about what you child thinks and why there mom is hurting them? Why do you think inflicting pain is going to make you child mind you?Answer Question

I've asked similar questions and there has been no one on cm that thinks there is anything wrong with spanking, popping, slapping, hitting, ect. their kids.
Time-outs aren't effective at stopping bad behavior or teaching good behavior. The book Love & Limits by Elizabeth Crary is good. She has a website called star parenting.

Because it is very effective for a lot of kids. Most parents tend to go with "what works" for their family. What works for mine, might not work for yours, and vise versa. Personally, I could care less what disipline method you. (unless of course you are abusive, and thats not cool!)
Find what works for your child and go with it.

My DD NEVER has hit me. She is not violent, the only time she has EVER hurt anyone is when she plays with her brothers. Their 9 1/2 and she's 2 1/2 so when they wrestle she wants to get in and will pull hair all that because they do it and their playing. I spank because I mean business!!!! She knows it. She knows that children DO NOT HIT. Momma and Daddy WILL give her a spanking if needed and she is always warned! I will tell her if she doesn't stop doing whatever it is she is doing she will get a spanking! I always use an open hand on her butt or hand. It works for us!
