Yes I do...if there actions warrant immediate attention,then yes I do and I dont care what anyone thinks...they stare when you let your kids run amok,they stare if you discipline,you cant win!My kids usually respond well to my voice and know when its time to settle down.I laugh at the moms that count to three...they never make it to three because they have no intention of following through with whatever discilpine they had in mind....just sayin...

I count to 3 and if my DD doesnt stop by 3 I do follow through. But she has learnt to stop before i reach 3.

You already know they don't! They are embarrassed. There will be a million excuses as to why; but it all comes down to they KNOW they are wrong for doing it!

Well hell yes.....if the situation warrented it.... say if my DD ran out into a parking lot where she could get hit by a car....or if they were pitching an unholy fit or something.  You have to disipline in the moment.  If you child is doing something dangerous or just acting like a complete brat I say, swat away........and I dare anyone to say a thing to me about it.  You disipline your kids...and I will disipline mine.  I can say though, that even though we spank, we dont have to do it often. Our kids know what the hard limits are and they know there are somethings if they do them, they will get an immediate spanking.

Depends on the offense and where we are. I usually try to take him away, to the bathroom Embarrassing him is not part of my plan (I have more than one child but only one that ever needs to be disciplined on a regular basis). My dh doesn't care though he will spank wherever infront of whomever.

I have patience. Im teaching my kids patience and communication skills. When you hit you arent teaching your kids selfcontrol.

I take my child to the bathroom and talk the first time. If he keeps acting up I then take him back and spank him. Is it in public yes but yet its private. I try my best to use a family bathroom so its only us. That way he is not in front of everyone. I feel this is the best way to rise MY child it is what works for us. I have only had to do it once. Now I just say do we need to go to the bathroom.
