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.

Lol! My dad broke a 1x4 on my sister once. She just laughed at him. It was already cracked pretty good and too big for him to get much leverage.

Why not take the knobs off of the stove when you aren't cooking???

I grew up getting whooped with a belt , hair brush , wooden spoon , a switch , and flip flops. However spanking a child with an object is considered abuse , perhaps you can get the point across another way ?

DH travels a lot for work.  We are a "Reasonable Force" state.


Quoting kate80:

No. According to cps using any object other than the palm of your hand is classified as abuse. Unfortunate about the arthritis. Any other alternatives? Could dh do it?

Parenting classes. Unless your spanking with your hand. Using objects to disipline your children is abuse.

Uh, no.  I don't hit my children with objects.

I never used an object.  In fact, I only ever had to spank my kids once or twice.  

My parents spanked us with a wooden spoon.  I would think a flip flop would be gentler than that.
