Would you spank for this?

DS is 3, autistic, and getting tired.

He threw a pizza crust on the floor.

Dh spanked him, hard, bare bottom for it. Spent a good two minutes yelling about it and won't let him out of time out.

I think that was WAY too harsh

I would have made DS throw the crust away, and sat him in time out for a few minutes. Had he thrown a fit it would have progressed to him being put in his room until he calmed down. No yelling or hitting, which always makes the situation worse. Getting put in time out or in his room until he is calm is usually effective for DS.

I let DS out of time out and had a few choice words for my husband.

That's way to harsh! Hubby sounds like he needs to go to his room to calm down!

I would have went farther than a few choice words with DH.

I do, rarely, and even then it's one light swat and only for something that involves them putting themselves in harms way, IF they already know better.

I hope you didn't use the choice words in front of ds. Dh was out of line I think.

that was too much. 3yo is little.. time out, sure.. he needs to know that throwing food will not be tollerated. but spanking and ranting? over the top, by far.

I do believe in spanking but not for that.
