I know we have had convos about spanking but my question is about the emotional side and how you feel about spanking when you know it is what you need to do but hate it. I believe spanking is the way we dicipline our children if needed but tonight I spanked my daughter she fought me and once i spanked her which she knew was coming she cried so hard and lkooked at me with such pain in her eyes (not physical pain I hardly touched her) but emotional as if to silently ask why did you do that? I have spanked her before and never had her look at me like that and also spanked for the same reason (throwing food on the floor so not to eat it) It broke my heart when she looked at me like that a had to leave as to not have her see me cry. What do you do in those situations when you really start to doubt if you are doing the right thing?
