Ok, so I am referring to the post on "Putting soap in your childs mouth". I was astounded at all the people who think that it isn't ok to spank, and all the mothers who were outraged at the thought that someone would put soap in their kids mouth. And, how would you punish your 16 or 17 year old who just told you to go F*** yourself? We all hope that wouldn't happen, but let's face it... they are their own people and we just wish that how we raise them will stick. I have seen kids that no matter what their parents did (gave them the belt, grounded them, w/e) nothing worked towards making them act right. I've also seen kids who get upset with themselves when their parents are dissapointed in them, and do better the next go round. Each child is so different, and each parent is different. What do you think is appropriate? And what do you think is too far?
