What would you do if a child spit at you?

I have a relative whose 4-year-old DD has recently started spitting toward ANYONE she becomes angry at. I have a HUGE problem with this and would likely spank my child were she to try and spit on me (even though I am not a big believer in spankings). I told the mom that if she does that while I am watching her, I WILL pop her bottom. The mother just completly ignores it. What are your thoughts?

  • Time out. Grounding. Taking things they like away. Same things I would use normally for any poor behavior. I dont spank.

  • Well, if it were my child I would spank her. I wouldn't put up with that crap. That's just ridiculous.

  • I'd give her a crack on the ass or mouth, or wash her mouth out with soap. Hell no! Mama doesn't play like that!

  • I tend to agree - either that child or it's parent needs a good ole fashioned ass whooping. Spitting has got to be one of the most disrespectful behaviors a child could be allowed to participate in; Spitting ranks right up there with a 4 year old using the F-word.

  • The kid would not be allowed at my home until they learn to stop doing that horrible thing! Probably learned from the parents if they don't discipline her. That is unacceptable and you should have a long talk with the parents.

  • If my child spit at me, he would get a spanking and if he spit at anyone else, they have my full permission to spank his butt.

  • I'd probably pop his mouth. Not real hard. But enough to know I'm serious.
