Dating a single dad who spanks his kids, I don't agree

I am dating a single dad of 4 young kids. It's been three months now and I am just now noticing that he spanks his kids out of frustration and anger. I am worried since I have a young son and I would never lay a hand on my child. How do I talk to him about this?

I think your parenting styles are very different and he sounds very overwhelmed. I think I would look elsewhere my self.

Otherwise I guess you tell him you notice when he is stressed that he spanks. Ask if he would like help figuring out how to manage his stress and deal with his children,

Again though, I would not stay.
