I am a peaceful parent. I not only would never spank or smack my kid, but it sickens me to know that people DO... and think it's ok.
On my facebook i support peaceful parenting tactics. I post things that might help someone struggling to not spank... or resort to CIO. I post these things not to be in your face, or sanctimommy... but as a source of information to someone who might not know about it. I feel like many people think they have to resort to spanking in order to raise a respectable adult.... they also get to the end of their rope and dont know what else to do.
Here's what gets me. The people who post things in support of spanking. This drives me nuts. I think spanking is a way for parents to take their emotions out on their children. Its an excuse to use violence as a way to teach peace. It's wrong and i think even the people who do it know it is.
I had to delete a facebook friend today because of this. It sickens me to know they spank their adorable children (one of them is 2).
How do you ladies handle this sort of thing? Do you speak up when they post something like that, or just delete them like i did?
I dont want to sound like a snob, and appologize if that's how i come off.
