Come on and tell me I am a horrible mother! LMAO
My daredevil son was climbing on the easy chair in the living room and trying to jump off (I've taken to calling him my mini-Evel Kneivel, lol)
So I grabbed him and popped his butt (once). He cried but I think he understood not to climb on the chair anymore.
I'd much rather have him cry for a second over a swat on the butt than jump or fall and get a broken arm/leg/neck or worse.
