  • No, but sometimes I wish I could... A good butt whippin' wouldn't hurt them. THEY ARE WILD!!! My kids are darn lucky they don't act like that!!

  • No. I've never been in a situation where I feel like I needed to result to that with other parents kids. I just take 'em to an adult who is more close to them and has that permission without the parents present. lmbo. Then they come back and respect me. :P

  • No. But I give some really good lectures and I see them really pay attention, They don't mess with me!!! LOL. Spanking they get over and don't learn a thing.

  • I haven't in a long long time. But when I was younger and babysitting for them I did. I had one child who I simply could not control. He was nearly as big as I was, violent and at one point even pulled a knife on me... I didn't want to not watch him because doing so would have meant his mother had to quit her job, and she was a dear friend to me. I would talk to her about what to do when he misbehaved and she always said paddle him, paddle him... I hated the idea because my mother beat us... But unless I literally sat on him, there was no "time outs" and nothing else I tried worked either... So I did spank him one day... He was 7...

    Now that I'm a mother, and have my own children, I wouldn't have an issue if a friend spanked my child, and a few family members have done it. Although beyond that kid I mentioned I've never babysat for a friend, I would definitely discuss discipline before I would agree to watch anyone's child.

  • Only when they have given me permission. I won't ask, but I have had a few tell me I had permission to spank them if I saw fit. Even then I don't like to spank other people's children unless they are just really asking for it.
