Yeah... well... I was going to post it in the music thread for you and... your spanking partner...
its not so much that i don't believe in it per se...I just can't bring myself to hit Nathan no matter what he has done, other than maybe a light hand-slap for things he knows he is not supposed to touch. How is it that I teach him not to hit people (as is something he occasionally does when he's mad) and then I go and hit him? To me, I would think that would confuse him.
He understands me when I talk to him, and I know that you need to repeat yourself a lot with toddlers, so I am just patient and pick my battles. He is pretty well-behaved most of the time, although he is going through this spitting phase... Timeouts have been working ok so far. He knows when we say 'corner!', that he's in trouble, and we do tell him why.
I've never spanked my daughter, nor I have I wanted to spank her.
I don't necessarily disagree with spanking sometimes, it's just not for me.
My dad never hit me, but he still knew how to instill a sense of fear in me that I've yet to have rivaled in my life.
try this: become a parent
I had two from my dad. Both with a belt, the first I was less than two years old, the second about 7. Now I'm an ole fart BUT remember them both.
Yeah... I was at a festival in DC, in China Town this weekend.. this guy's 7 year old wandered away from him... rarely in my life have I witnessed something as sad as this man frantically yelling for his kid (who was found 10 minutes later, watching a performance)
Watching the fear grip him as time ticked by was hard; thankfully the crowd was nice and helped him find the kid.
