Hello and Greetings!
I am like all the rest of you - a stressed single mom with not enough time and too many kids!!
My oldest daughter is now 12...and I've been waiting on the day that she is old and responsible enough to babysit for my younger two daughters...who are 9 and 3. My nine year old is mature for her age and think's it cool when "big sis" babysits, so she is well behaved. Beth, my three year old is another story!
She throws temper tantrums and is just trouble for my oldest daughter...she is about ready to stop babysitting for her and I really enjoy being able to have a break. I am thinking of giving my twelve year old permission to spank Beth the next time this happens...all my daughters have been spanked by me at one time or another (I still spank to that regard) so it would not be unusual for her. Is twelve too young to be letting her spank her sister though?
Thanks for all responses in advance...I am really torn on this one...
