When my daughter was three she snuck a pair of Chucks in the stroller while I was paying for another pair at Foot Locker. When we got to the car I realized it, and made her return them. The guy at the counter was confused why I brought them back (idiot), but she needed to learn a lesson. I didn't spank her because I really don't think she realized what she had done was wrong. But if she was six, yup a good ol spanking is what she woulda got!

we say in our house, until you can reason with them and they can understand what they did was wrong and why then whooping ass is ok. now, when she's 16 and bigger than you things could change :)

I done that once when I was about that age and my dad made me return it to the manager of the store. I was scared to death! But it worked for me. I didn't get a ass whooping tho. maybe I should have haha! Did he return it?

ha i like how you worded that.. but in my opinon no you weren't he has to learn somehow that that is wrong and that he shouldnt do it. even if it just is something little like a pack of gum, but he'd eventually realize that he can get away with it and start doing stupid sh*t when hes older... so yeah in my opinon you weren't.
