I am a single mum, I am new in here.
I have three lovely kids, 12 year old girl, 14 and 16 year old boys.
I have been facing some problems with my two boys lately, I have found sigaretts under my 14 year old sons bed, and my oldest one is drinking and smoking too. I have told them several times that this is not acceptable.
I left my husband two years ago, he used to punish the boys from time to time and I think that didn't harm them.
I know this is a difficult topic, and we all love our children. Time has changed, when I was a girl 40 years ago spanking was pretty normal.
I hope someone can help me out here, I find this very difficult to handle.
My ex husband is living so far away and he has already settled with a new woman and doesn't have time for his own kids anymore. Well thats how I feel it...
Will it be wrong of me punishing my kids when I really finds it necessary?
Thanks in advance
