Never okay to use bad words.(even thoughmost moms at some point have slipped) I agree with above spanking is a personal choice. Time-out is a good alternative also, find one place in the house and make them sit for one minute for every year old they are, discipline isn't pleasant by all means but it should never be a cussing session. If you are mad about something that your child does maybe put them in time-out and take one yourself and then when the time is up THEN talk to them about what they did wrong.

There is nothing wrong with spanking.. but there IS somethingwrong with "using bad words" to discipline a child. As for the mom that says never hit a child.. what may not work for you may work for anothermom. Never say never. So while you may never spank, no ones children are the same and maybe her child will respond better to a spanking than your children would.

No spanking does NOT promote worse behavior. That is a MYTH or better yet should I say a lie. EACH child reacts different to different styles of discipline.
