Does anyone use a flip-flop for spanking? *NOT A SPANKING DEBATE*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I'm an older mom and my arthritis is getting to the point that I cannot spank.  My DD tried to turn the stove on again today while I BF my  youngest.  I've never spanked with an object at this point, but I've heard that a flip-flop is the gentlest choice and does not leave marks.

Please don't turn this into a debate.  This post is for parents who spank only.  If you do not spank please move along.  Please ignore replies made by people trying to turn this into a debate.

pending on what state you live in, that may be illegal and considered child abuse.

Have you tried time out? Restricting something like tv or a favorite toy? Neither of those ever bother my arthritis LOL

I used my hand on butts covered by clothes but not often.
A flip flop would hurt.

Quoting Linzeekp:

You're looking for advice on objects in which to hit your child.... I have nothing constructive to say.


Yeah this.... no words......^^^^

........ if you are having to resort to using objects its time to find other ways to discipline your child.
