  • Who the F&#K spanks an 8 month old!?!?! And WTF is up with the baby talk??? You don't smack a kid that old, and baby talk just confuses them in the long run!! I'd say there should be an some sort of competence testing to be allowed to parent!!

  • I'd think that it's absolutely ridiculous that she's threatening to spank an 8 month old.

  • I'd give a disproving look and hope she doesn't think threats or following through on threats is a productive way to raise a child.

  • I'd let her spank her child. Parents have the right to discipline their children in the fashion that they wish. Now if I saw her ABUSING the child I'd call children services if I knew the parent, and if I didn't know the parent I guess I don't know what I'd do.

  • i'd wonder what an 8 month old could do to deserve a spanking.

  • I'd be appalled. I'm not a fan of spanking, anyway, but and 8 month old??? I wouldn't step in, because it's not my child, but I can guarantee I'd be talking about it.

  • I think it's appalling as well...a woman who worked for CPS actually told me that she spanked her 6 month old a while back, totally couldn't believe it!

  • i understand spanking a child, and every parent had the right to discipline their own child.......but an 8 month old? plus, lets try proper english. the child wont be speaking correctly later on if this is how they are talked to.

  • What would I think? That it is no different than threatenning to spank... whether it has a cute name or flat out what it is... it is what it is!
