My 13 year old daughter has really been getting out of hand lately. First of all she has been getting in trouble with her teachers because of using bad language and being very disruptive,and although I sat down and talked with her and told her using that kind of language was unacceptable(she called another girl the Cword) We don't cuss in our household and she knows that it is not okay. I just don't know what is making her so angry right now. She has also been sneaking out at night and tries to sneak back in,but I catch her. I know that kids rebel I certainly did,but I also knew that if I did I could expect a spanking from my Mother. My Mom spanked me even when I was a teenager. I am not against spankings at all. I think there is a clear line that defines abuse if you hit your child a break a bone that is abuse. A red bottom will not send your child to the hospital. I am considering giving her a spanking but I want to hear from all of you as to what you would do.
