Is it wrong to pop a 6 year old in the face for back talking?
Yes it is wrong. It is abuse.
What should I tell my friend to do instead of this?
Yeah, that's not ok in my house...
And I can't give her advice because I don't think "back talk" is always something that should be punished.
Quoting Allensbaby361:What should I tell my friend to do instead of this?
I pop my kids on the mouth when they talk back! It shocks them more then hurts them. I see nothing wrong with it. There is a difference between slapping a child across the face hard enough to leave a mark and Popping on the lips. But that my opinion
I don't and have never hit my kids. I charge my kids a nickel a comment, more for my teens. It actually stops the backtalk for a while.
I have an ice cream fund with the money. In the 8 years we've been doing it, I still don't have enough for an ice cream cone at my favorite shop.
