IF YOU DO NOT SPANK, PLEASE EXIT THIS THREAD IMMEDIATELY! GRAC√ćAS. Now these past few weeks my son has been somewhat of a hell raiser. I've tried and tried to be a good mother and do what I thought was right.<<<<< ((back story--> I spent 2 months being raped/beaten by a child who claimed to be a man. In turn I said to myself, if this is similar to what happens between me and my son (the spanking/discapline) then I'll never spank again. Before then, I had no problem spanking/discaplining my son because it wasn't that hard to make sure he stayed on the straight & narrow and when I try to do it now, I feel as if I'm a Bad mother for putting him back on the straight and narrow again because then I'm reminded of how badly I was beaten, not that I would ever hurt my baby boy in that way (I love him waaaayyyyy tooooo much for that)) >>>>> but as it may seem, talking does NOT work, redirection does NOT work, time outs he takes as a joke, etc. so I feel as if I have to resort to old school ways. I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT I DO >>NOT<< INTEND ON HARMING THIS CHILD! Now that I've become fed up beyond belief I figured i would do the most logical thing. Punishment. For a whole day or so. No tv, no outside, no toys, no iPad. End of story. He stays in the room AND think about what he's done. >>>> now I shall tell you that me and little man are very close. We do almost everything together. Watch tv, play outside, pretend, love and affection, eat, sleep, party (no i don't drink beer or anything close to that, I'm a soda kinda gal), things of the like.
