I was told by a friend's husband to spank my daughter or she will be an out of control teen.
I called my friend the other day and her husband always has been a chatter with me and he asked if I spanked my DD. I said I never had a need to do it. I have smacked her on her hand if she hit ect but never spanked her and he told me he does spank his son and that if I don't spank my daughter she will be an out of control teenager. I think it's not none of his business how i discpline my child. She has never given me any reason to and I am not against it but if there is no need why do it. I don't get why people have to comment on how others discpline their child just because they do it one way they think it will work for all children. My dd doesn't act out in public. she has cried once in the store and I have left. Yes she acts like a child but I just leave. I am not against it but there has been times I had to pick her up and carry her in the parking lot because she didn't want to hold my hand. So there are others ways to handle the situation. Again I am not against it but his comment just bothered me. My friend does not think that way but the husband is the one home with the child so he is with him more. That was my vent.
