my son will be 2 in a week. he spent the night at my in laws last night. when we picked them up, my FIL said he was good, but he had to get on him once. he said he dumped some motor oil and played in it in the garage. he told him not to do it again, well my son being a 2 year old did it again. he told us "i had to get on him and swat his bottom". we have never spanked my so and I have not planned on doing it unless as a last resort when hes a little older. my FIL is an old country guy who is very strict. hes set in his ways, and believes that spanking is the way to go. my husband believes in spanking, but also thinks my son is too young. i'm so upset about this and keep finding myself crying picturing my baby getting spanked. he has no marks, and didnt seem upset when we got him. i dont know if he just did it real quick, or actually pulled his pants down. am i over reacting. i'm such a mess. i dont want to start start trouble.Answer Question

No, you are not over reacting. We did spank our kids when they were younger, but no one else was allowed to. I would be livid if my in laws thought they had the right to touch my child. I would talk to him and let him know that no one besides you and your husband will be using any form of corporal punishment on your children.
