How do you feel when you see a mom out in a store or restaurant and their child is completely acting out and every one is shaking their head at the mom? I think It is crazy to let a child act like that. I also believe that if you allow it to continue then the child will grow up to be very disrespectful to you and others. Then what happens when the run into someone who will not deal with that? what happens when the child gets to school? These are the children who are bullying other children thinking they are supposed to always get their way!
Let me also add because some of you are taking my post the wrong way. I am NOT talking about parents with children who have special needs. Nor do I want to here horror stories of a parents childhood. I do believe in spanking with a whole heart. However I DO NOT believe in hitting children in the face or spanking them with objects other than a belt. I DO NOT agree with spanking children anywhere other than there bottoms, and yes if I have to spank in public I have no problem with that. I would love for some stranger who thinks they have wrote the bible on parenting come up to me and try to utter their opinion to me. People, please get over it! I'm not condoning child abuse because there is a difference, I'm just saying this is my choice, my child and unless you clearly see a child being abused then mind your own business!!!!!
