  • This may be bad, but I'd slap them back, and tell them to get their ass in their room!

  • First, I doubt she ever would, because dh and I have raised her to be respectful of us. We don't hit her and have not allowed abusive or aggressive behavior in our home. We have taught her to settle problems with words. If, however, she did slap me, I would try to calm myself down and tell her that hitting is not allowed in our home. Then I would work out a punishment for her that fit the crime... i.e. the hand offends, the hand suffers... and take away her ipod or cell phone or whatever else she loves that depends on her hands for use.

  • We would more than likely keep going at it till the neighbors called the cops or one of us needed to go to the ER, we are both so stubborn and think we are right all the time-- it would not be good!!!

  • A spanking she would not forget in a hurry.

  • It probably would not be the wises move, but 1st she will get slapped back, then we will sit down and discuss the looong punishment.

  • None of my kids have done that and I really don't see them doing it. If they did, I would be the proper adult and NOT slap her back. I would, however give a much deserved spanking as that breaks our only 2 rules of our house: 1.) Be respectful and 2.) Be obedient. Any other do's and dont's fall under those 2 rules.

  • After the shock wore off I'm not entirely sure what I would do. My first thought depending on the circumstance would be to call the police because there is no way I can defend myself against my son, he's much bigger and stronger than me. The other thought would be to attempt to hit him back but I believe that effort would be futile. I think it would really depend on what was going on that he felt the need to hit me, because honestly I can't ever imagine either of my boys hitting me.
