Disciplining a red head

Heather - posted on 09/01/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My girls got in a bit of trouble today so they got a spanking. While my middle daughter did just fine my red head bruised :( I'm completely appalled and horrified with myself. My girls almost NEVER get spankings and I never use extreme force. I wasn't even upset when I spanked them. Coul it be the difference in the fare skin and red hair that made it easier to bruise? I'm at a loss. I'm not an abusive parent, never have been. But I just don't understand how swatting her caused her to bruise! Any advice? Please don't bash I already feel like scum of the earth. I think it's safe to say I won't be spanking her again.

I'm a redhead and I get bruises sometimes just from itching my leg. I bruise very easily.
