Ok yes I realise that my daughter is only two, and its the terrible two's, but how do I get a two year old to understand that if she just walks up to strangers to give them a hug that they might take her away from me? Also, how do I get her to stay by my side when we are running errands and my hands are full with my almost 3 week old baby. I have one of those child leases, is that a bad thing to use it? I hate punishing her in public, the last time I spanked her for running away from me in public was 6 months ago, and a man came up to me and told me I should never hit my child?!?! Im at a lose to know what to do, I need some serious advice, do I spank her? Do I leash her? How do I punish her with all these laws about not beating your kids, I dont think I beat her by any means, is one spanking in the middle of the parking lot considered a beating? I know its illegal now to wash kids mouths out with soap, its considered abuse apparently, it worked when I cursed at my mom, but now I cant do the same to stop her from cursing or telling me to shut up, I have no idea where she picks up this kinda language.
