Freaking Seriously?!

Now I remember why I quit coming on this site!

While yes, there are many moms who are awesome and offer help, kind words, advice, etc., many of them are very much stuck on their high-horse and have no problem judging other moms!

I had to remove a post because people were criticizing how I discipline my child. I'm sorry if you think the way I go about things means my son isn't disciplined at all.

Some of the moms here (in other groups mostly) are so stuck-up! It makes me want to leave this site again! Ugh!


Rant over!

Not a problem. I use counting to 3 as a warning, followed by 3 spankings at most and being sent to his room until he can calm down. Aparently giving him a chance to correct his behavior was not an appropriate response...who knew?

Hmmmm - you know your child better than anyone and there is a huge difference btw a spanking and a beating and it doesn't sound like anything other than trying to get your three year old to behave and I would think giving him a chance to correct his behavior before his punishment is teaching him positive consequences vs severe consequences, I don't know if this makes any sense, but do you kinda know what Im trying to get at? Sorry, its been a very long day here at work....

Right? I mean, my parents did the same thing and I'm glad they did because it worked on me. Other than my son deciding some days he's not going to listen to mommy, it works well. It always works best when both parents agree on it, which we do.

If you ask for opinions they will be varied according to what each individual thinks.

If you want them to answer you with all atta girls  you are living on the wrong planet.

Agreed! I rarely post on here because there are so many people that are just hateful and mean (there are a lot of great moms, too, but the nasty ones like to kick you when you're down). I posted asking for advice on a medical problem, and one mom posted a nasty comment about not caring what happened to me because my initial visit was with Planned Parenthood and if I was supporting a slaughter house she didn't feel sorry for me. For a lot of us, we post when we genuinely have a question/concern/problem and the rest of the world doesn't get it.

If its not abuse and it works for you and your child...How could they possibly know all the answers, every kid is different!
