2 of my girls got in a bit of trouble today, so I gave them a spanking with my hand on their bottom, my middle daughter did just fine, no big deal. It turned red then went away. But my oldest, BRUISED. I have no idea how either. I mean yes I swatted her but it wasn't with excessive force or anything. I'm always careful. Could it he cause her skin is so much more fare? She is a red head, and I'm wondering if that could be why. I feel horrible and am lost as to what to think. Please don't bash. I'm not abusive they almost NEVER get spankings and now I'm positive that they probably never will again. Any advice?

Were they wet? that can make bruses happen more easy so can the dye in tylnol and other foods ther are a million other ways to dicipline besides spanking that do more and they think about longer, look at this as you warning and hopfully a get out of jail free card and be creative with your punishments and not violent it realy only teaches them (at any age) when some one upsets you it ok to hit them!

As a matter of fact they were wet. They had just gotten out of the pool. And like I said, they NEVER get spankings. But this circumstance was different. I'm seriously the type to say it over and over again, which isn't good either I know. But I never resort to spankings unless I feel it's absolutely necessary! Like I said I feel horrible. And this has honestly scared away from spanking, PERIOD.
