    I like the outsmarting idea…kids, though, can be pretty darn smart!! Stay on your toes!!

    You don't THINK you will? How can you even THINK about it? I can't see why ANYONE would spank their children - violence is not an answer, not for anything!!

    It all depends on the kid Perez. Out of 3 kids only 1 needed that swat on his behind. For some reason he defied everyone as soon as he could walk and talk.

    Check out Positive Discipline by Jane Nelson. Imagine your kid learning how to be a respectful, empathic, person because you were respectful and empathic toward them, all while still setting boundaries as the parent. Every parent should follow Positive Discipline principles - it just makes us all better people. You're a smart guy, Perez, and I'm sure you'll appreciate this:

    what a crock, saying what you "think" you'll do as a parent is a waste of time until you ARE a parent. And there is a reason such a high percentage do it but either don't admit it or talk about it. There are obviously times when a kid needs to know you're serious and sometimes a good swat on the behind does just that. P.S. our son is 3 and doesn't need to be told twice to do something because we taught him from the get that he has to cooperate on our first request. No spoiled, rotten kids in our home.

    There are so much diverse advice on this and I am not a violent person in any way but dont think an occasional smack on the backside for bad behaviour does them any harm. Good luck out smarting them.

    you can use logic on a child…when they act up, swat them on the ass so they know they fucked up and that every action has a consequence…that's why we have a bunch of entitled assholes running around right now…but, perez's baby is a cross eyed retard, so he shouldn't be too much trouble…he'll probably just sit there and beat his head against the wall…

    Re: Barbara – I was spanked as a child and I turned out just fine; did well in school, not a delinquent, never been in trouble with the law. I always knew exactly why I was getting a spanking, and what not to do to avoid one. My parents were just from a different generation and I'd never hold it against them. I have a 2 yr old daughter now, and even though she has turned into a monster overnight, I haven't yet encountered something that has caused me to spank her. Does that mean I never will? Who knows. But the whole outsmarting thing? Good luck. Have you ever tried to reason with a child?

    Re: Spence – That comment should have been a reply to Anna. Apologies, Barbara.

    Re: Spence – Same here, got swatted and once in awhile if I was really bad (I was very spoiled and headstrong) spanked with a belt. Happily married for almost 33 years until my husband passed, never been blessed with children, but have a granddaughter from another marriage who is the joy of my life.
    I think the worst problem is parents who want to be "friends" with their child. This seems to be a problem though with older children, not toddlers.

    IF they grab something they shouldn't, say no calmly and immediately substitute something they CAN muck around with. Around 4 or 5, time outs for temper giving a minute per year of age is about right, followed by a short talk and a hug afterward. More than anything, when they have some comprehension, a kid benefits from an intelligent explanation at their level as to what could happen if they played wit something dangerous. Explain, explain, explain. Kids aren't stupid. If you're too rushed or don't bother to explain, they tend to go for the thing again because they just think you're banning them from it or spoiling their fun. If a kid has a bad day where they're int everything, they are BORED. You need to up your game. They need more challenge. New paints, paper, play dough, or something cool to do will get their focus back. Kids want to be good. Boredom is the troublemaker.

    I spanked once and not very hard, but the shock factor worked. When a dear little one right beside you one runs out between parked cars when you stoop to pick a weed, you never want them to do it again. My spank line was life or death. It never happened again.
    I felt terrible.
