You are the only one that made sense, that is why alot of kids run their parents.
You see it all of the time at stores, restuarnats and other places. no matter where I love it when the sales person tells me..."You have such well behaived kids"
I just smile and say Thank you and walk away feeling proud that I am doing a great job...Forget that nanny911 shit. Yes talk to the child but at an age they actually understand. I mean spank your child when needed not just to hit. come on have some common sense. This is what you call good old fashion dicipline. For those against it you should try it sometime or suffer....with your child in public.

I have fully grown children. They where both spanked when they where breaking health and safety rules. My oldest child who will be 31 on Fri. stilll knows that when I say please do this it means go do it. My teen mother 19 also knows that. She didn't break as many rules growing up and if questioned told the truth. I thank sometimes the best lessons are applied to the bottom of the child. It seems to stay in their head longer like that.

i spank for things he could die from (ex. he used to push the screen out of his second story bedroom window and hang his head out? ran away in walmart! ran away in the parking lot... after being spanked he doesnt do them again,) most things it would be cruel to spank for that he does wrong. i dont believe it is ever acceptable to use a tool to him them (belt, etc) to hit anywhere but the butt after warning or to ever leave a mark. it is acceptable discipline as long as it is done correctly. i also dont think it is the best measure of motherhood to base it solely on how they behave in stores, how do they do in school, socially, athletically, artistically, sorry i am a Montessori mom and very into the "whole child" perspective...
