If you spank your kids out in public, what are you doing behind closed doors!
I don't get this question. Yes I have spanked my kids. Not often but a few times. No I don't see it as "hitting" or "abuse". To me that would be actually beating my kids up. I have seen/read/heard people say " if she spanks her kids here, what must be going on at home". Well obviously I can't speak for someone else, but for me the same thing you see. Now I have to admit I have never actually spanked my kids straight out in public because I have never had to. My kids have never given me a reason to spank them in public. They are sweet delightful kids most the time so there is not really much of a reason to discipline them at all. But if I had, that's my answer. Why would you think something else is going on if you see a parent spank their child. No maybe its not right to publicly shame your child. But some don't think its a big deal to spank their kids. To me all I hear is a bunch of irrational, incapable of thinking past their noses, busy body women with nothing more to do than create drama for themselves. Just because you personally don't think its an acceptable form of raising your kids, you think you should have a say on how everyone else raises theirs. My second question, what makes you think you are the end all be all on parental figures? Some how, you obtained the notion that what you think is golden should be set in stone. So where did all this over inflated sense of self start? And this question goes for anyone, spankers and non-spankers a like, who think they should have a say on how people raise their children.
