Ok, she isn't really a baby, put down the stones. She's two and has awful tantrums. Today she was throwing one in the store. I decided to ignore it, but then she tried to bash her head on the floor. I picked her up, put her over my lap and gave her two firm swats. Here's the thing it works short-term. She stopped the tantrum. Her dad is very anti-spanking and I try to be, but when she does something dangerous whar what am I supposed to do? Does anyone have good ideas to stop an
tantrum that doesn't involve spanking?
