While I'm not a big fan of swatting a bottom, or bare leg I will and have done it. and may very well do it again if I deem it necessary. You know why, because I'm the MOMMY of my child.<quoted text>
Wow....guess your children really hate you. If you aren't intelligent enough to speak to your child and discipline through verbal communication and actions then you have no business being a parent. Only ignorant people beat their children because they aren't capable of using their intellect to solve a problem and are not capable of controlling their tempers. Parenting classes are offered throughout communities. I suggest you take one.
What this woman did was wrong. However where I sit judging another mother for swatting a bottom, or bar leg is wrong as well.
With you thought process all children are tempered just alike and have the very same personalities so 'talking to them' will work on all. Raising children is a one size fits all thing with you, is that right? OK!
