To Spank or Not to Spank – a discussion on discipline: when to start, how to implement, and how does it change as kids get older
This is a rough area in parenting for me. Some times I feel I am to hard on my toddler and some times I feel like I am to lenient with her. I do think spanking is a must in disciplining. Not for every situation though. I do try to talk with my toddler and if she understands and obeys, I skip the spanking. Melt downs usually end in a spanking. A pop to the booty or on the hand. Both work pretty well. I have tried the ignoring her thing.. that does not work. & at the moment the time out thing does not work because my toddler is only 2 and very HYPER. She is super smart, and she talks and comprehends more that the average 2 year old. This can be good and bad in the disciplining department. "I don't want to" and "Get away" are the normal things I hear when I try to get on to her. BUT when she knows she did something bad a few minutes later she will come up to me and say "I'm sorry mama." So I suppose I am not failing completely!
