  • I'm sorry but that made me laugh. A bung hole, really? I would have probably done the same thing in your situation. And I'm one who has never spanked my child. Don't feel bad.

  • It is easy for me to its never ok to hit anyone. But I wasn't the one standing there getting disrespected to my face by someone I love most in the world. I am sorry you were so hurt. Sometimes apologizing for our own mistakes is a good lesson too.

  • yah honestly i thought that was kind of funny as well. i mean who comes up with those words lol. but on the other hand i dont have the heart to spank or any of that because the way i was raised and if there needs to be discipline in that area i have my fiance do that.

  • I had to slap my older one across the face he was out of control it did hurt but he later said to me he was glad I did not let him get away with it.

  • I do spank my kids. I believe in spare the rod spoil the child. I don't beat them though. My son has been asking for it for a while now. Last nigh was just the last straw. He was shocked when I did it. But I believe I got my point across. I did feel bad but I don't think I'll have to do it again for a long while. He even cried, broke my heart n I did apologize after I lectured him. I luv my baby boy. U can see a picture in my photos.

  • My mom slapped me when I was 16 because she felt like I was talking back (obviously I still don't feel like I was). She would probably still slap me if I talked nasty to her.

  • Spare the rod spoil the child! My mother straight up punched me in the chest, leaving my literally breathless. Why? Because I didn't clean my room when she wanted me to.
