I am not a spanker. I have always had the opinion of it is fine for some people, but not for me.
This morning I asked my ds7 to hold his toothbrush up while putting the paste on because out counter is always covered in sticky paste and he doesnt wipe it up.
He looked at me in the miror while he set the brush down on the counter and put the paste on.
I went to pick up the toothbrush and he wordlessly screamed while he grabbed both my hands and dug his nails in them so hard he broke skin.
I yelled at him to stop and tried to hold his arms. He dropped to the floor on his back like a turtle and began scratching and kicking me.
I picked him up, put him over my knee and spanked him 4 times on his bottom with an open hand.
I feel terrible and evil. Was I over the line?
