She having complete melt downs because she wants something and she wants it NOW. I tell her in a minute and she becomes unglued. My thinking is not to give in to these tantrums because she will think that is how to always get her way. I tell her as soon as she calms down I will then do it. What ever it may happen to be. She will not stop screaming at the top of her lungs. I would love to just give in but I think that would be wrong and create a bigger monster in the long run. I have tried putting her in her room for time outs and she flings herself back out into my room. Here is my question. Why is it so bad to spank or smack a child that is completely out of control. On the butt of course. Please tell me because I am at my wits end. Thank you.
