Yes I spank. I know I will most likely be bashed for it but there comes a time when timeouts no longer work. Sadly I am even the one who has to dish out punishment for my stepchildren because their own mother cant be bothered to do it. Now my step son and daughter would be just as happy to be grounded to their room than anything so that no longer works for them. I do hate being the one that has to be the "mean" parent but I would rather try to curb their bad behavior than be to busy to do any form of punishment.
Now I will sit back and wait for the bashing to start.
For those of you who do spank do what are the reasons for it? Have you warned them many times before time? Just wondering if I'm the only "horrible" mom out there lol.
For those moms who don't spank I have great respect for you. I really do. If I may ask how do you get onto them? Besides time outs? Just talk to them? I'm sure you made the choice of not spanking years ago how did you come to that? Just wondering.
