I spanked mine. I would definitely spank mine if they were acting like that period, not just in public. My kids are 5, 4, and 18 months. Being consistent with spanking seriously has gotten us to the point of not needing to use it anymore. They don't do anything anymore that I believe is severe enough to get a spanking for. I did find something else though. My 3 year old (girl) responds A LOT better to gentle discussion then she ever did to spanking. My son, the 5 year old, is made to get into his bed. He hates taking time outs on his bed so I've found that works awesomely too. What do your children absolutely hate? Corners? Beds? Before I started spanking, I couldn't have put my 5 year old in his bed, he wouldn't have stayed there.
