When is it time to say you just have had enough or even threaten them with a spanking?
Many of were spanked as children . When I became an adult I realized that I had the power to raise my children as I pleased. Yes the in laws wanted to put their 2 cents worth in . Which is normally worth less that 2 cents, because this information comes from the uninformed, At least most of my relatives give advice but I am not sure what sort of logic they use. Example my mother in law said if we use onezes on our babies that they would get wrecked down there. My mother in law had no medical training was uneducated and ignorant. She formed here opinions from fear which had little or no factual basis. I believe many people are doing this.
Well my dad did it this way and it was fine for us kids and it will be good for you. That is the most piss poor logic I
have ever heard. Maybe dads method worked in the 1970s but the world is a different place then it was back then. I have never spanked my kids. I hated getting spanked as a child it really made me angry, resentful and not trusting of my mother. My dad never spanked us or recommended that we get spanked. He also was beat as a child and it
made him the same way as it did me. When you talk to social workers they will try to tell you that if you were hit as a kid you will also hit your kids.
Many times they cant read people and are strictly talking from the books and studies that they have read. Most of the time these studies are not helpful for us to decide our behaviors. In my opinion that it is never time to spank your kids. What should I do! If your kids are acting up so bad that you think that by hitting them it will in some way help them you may need help yourself. Children are people and they have rights.
You are not allowed to strike children. Most adults are larger that their kids. Just think if someone sent a huge person to spank you because they didn’t like they way that you were acting. The main problem is us. That’s right the parents are normally the problem. Think about it. Look at the kids that the parents are showing love and attention on a steady basis. Are they miss behaving? Do they need to be hit also Maybe their parents spanked them into submission huh? No! Never strike a child.
