So today my 3 yr old son punched me in the face when I told him No. I put him in time. I put on facebook thay I was a little upset that he punched me. One of my mothers friends commented saying I should buy a paddle and use it on him. I replied saying I don't agree with that and will never use a paddle on my kids. He then replied saying your choice and your mistake if he don't learn and now your going to be miserable for years. At that point I was a loy mad but I didn't get pissy all I said back was its not a mistake I just don't agree with using objects to hit my kids yes its my choice and idc what u use on your kids as our parenting styles are different but please don't tell me I am going to be miserable as our kids and lives are diffrent. He hasn't replied back which I am glad but what do you all think about using paddles on kids? I personally think its not right but again that's my opinion. .

***Yes I am aware we should not post things on fb but i did and I understand everyone has an opinion and again I am ohkay with that I don't mind that I did not bash him or yell at him as you can tell I simply just stated I WILL NOT USE A PADDLE OR ANY OTHER OBJECT ON MY KIDS....

I'm with you on this one. I don't feel it's right, or necessary to hit your child with an object and call that discipline.

Don't post controversial things on FB if you don't want LOTS of people coming back with their own opinions. People will comment when you post things like that.

it makes no sense to punish a child for hitting by hitting them back. its just confusing to them and it doesn't teach them a thing

I have no problem with people stating there opinions and I never said I did I just simply told him I did not agree with using a paddleon my kid I did not bash him or anything else because his parenting style is diffrent then mine as every ones parenting is diffrent.
