I feel like the worst mother in the world.....

My SO and I don't agree on hitting/spanking. We don't ever want our children to fear us like that. We talked about it before we even had DD, during my pregnancy and after. Shes 19 months old now and shes really hard to deal with (like all toddlers her age) shes very string willed and shes a huge drama gueen. So anyway she hit me in the face really hard the other day and I got mad and "popped" her on the hand. I feel like a piece of crap. I can't believe I hit her. I always said I would NEVER hit my children and I did it. She did the little "puppy lip" thing and crided a little bit and put her hand out for me to kiss it better. I feel like the workds worst mom and I cant stop thinking of the look on her little face. I still can't believe I did it and I still didnt tell her father about it. I know he wont be mad or anything but he will be a bit upset that I hit her and that I didnt talk to him about it first (we said IF we ever felt like we had to do it that we would talk to eachother about it first)

A pop on the hand isn't going to kill her.

I'm sure she will be able to get over the emotional trauma. Sounds like it's time to start time outs.

I'm going to tell you now, a small pop on the hand is part of it. I have a 1 year old boy whom if I didn't pop him in the hand everytime he grabbed something he wasn't supposed to he would be all over the place. Don't do it hard enough to hurt but to get the point across. You're not a bad parent, you're teaching your child and that cue is a trigger of I'm not supposed to do that.

Its not that I think it will kill her or anything lol but I dont agree with spanking (I dont care if you do) I just lost my cool and thats what bugs me. I feel there is a better way to handle the situation but I am just at a loss of what that is
