  • I just do what works for me. I knew going in that I was not going to spank because of personal experiences from my own childhood. Over time through research and trial and error I have found things that work for my kids. It seems to be working as the kids are well behaved!

  • First of all, there are a lot of reasons why I disipline the way that I do. No. 1, the Bible backs me up, No.2, my huibby backs me up and No 3, I have read tons of parenting books to get ideas on how best to handle kids.
