How were you disciplined as a child? Do you use the same methods that your parents used on you on your children?

I was never spanked but I did get time outs...

My SO was spanked all the time and he thinks its a good thing however I like to use time outs!

I was spanked, put into time out, had things taken away.

And I do all of the above!

I got spanked and time outs. When I was older I would get grounded from EVERYTHING!

I am a step mom so I dont do a lot of the discipline. When I do it is time outs and groundings. No spankings. I would never spank someone else's child but I must admit that I have been tempted several times while we are in Target!

i was never spanked...my parents always used time out, or taking things away...

i have swated (i think thats how its spelled) on the butt, but that is it and maybe only a handful of times....we use time out.

i was spanked and grounded...  like 3-4 times in my whole life...

my husband was spanked and sees nothing wrong with it

i will not spank if it can be helped unless she is putting her or someone else in danger....

and i still think she is too young for that....  she is 15 months old!

however i live with my inlaws and they dont believe like i do and mil babysits i told my husband if she goes against the way we decided to parent she will no longer be babysitting!!  my husband decided i will do the disciplining because i flipped on him when he did something totally uncalled for

I was spanked with extensions cords, belts only on my butt though. IF I talked back I was popped in the mouth.My step dad was worst he was strait out abusive, but he hardly punished me, so I wont include the things he did. Most thing were deserved(by mom), I had quite a mouth on me. lol Anywho I am alive, and so all is well. We do spank, but way less than I was spanked and only with hand and on the butt. I am doing research o how to discipline in a Christian way wihtout spanking(if thats possible). Hopefully I can do that fully with ds, and change over with dd. I don't use belts, or extension cords because II dont really agree with that. I didn't really like that and can be just as effective with my hand or other forms of disiplen.
