  • I used to but they are too old and a lot bigger than me. Now on the rare occassion they need discipline I take their car keys, cell phones or do away with their time with friends/girlfriends. I say rarely because I only have to threaten this and they step back in to line REALLY FAST!

  • If your DH doesn't want you to spank how does he propose to discipline? You need to have a method because All children need discipline.

  • Yes, I spank my 19 month old and now I'm determine to stop because it's not helping. She's been getting spanking on her hand every since she was 9 months old. All it does is get a threat from my dd. She tells me that she'll kick my a$$ and hits me back on top of that. So I think I better stop, should I? Someone pm me the answer.
