i have a son named blaze who is almost three. since around the time he turned two, my fiancee has been hitting him when he acts up around him. sometimes with a belt but not always. i dont know how i feel about it anymore, i dont want my baby to grow up wrong.

lord have mercy. ev, where you hit a kid whether on their ass (which is kinda predatory) or their face or wherever, what difference does it make? and the end of the day you are using your hand to hurt a kid. so if "hitting" anywhere but the ass is abuse, that makes no sense. hitting is hitting & it always wrong to hit a kid in these ways that mothers on here describe. i don't care where they are being hit, that is so stupid.

also, ev, here's a time magazine article from 2014 that proves it legal to hit your kids in all states, even delaware. http://time.com/3379862/child-abuse/
you jus can't use a object or closed fist in delaware, so yeah. im gonna take their word over the shady site u sent. lol

ok why would you ask if i knew what mandated reporters are? i'm not stupid. and i hate spanking i would never hit my children. i just think it's wrong to respond to mothers like this by telling them its illegal and they can get arrested and they are abusers in the eyes of the law, and it's just not true. thats never going to help anything.

and i think she meant this is the child's father, ev since its titled "fiancee who hits OUR son" they just arent married.

i didnt say i knew everything, but ev said that spanking is illegal in some states and its not. even if theres limits on spanking that doesent make it illegal. thats like saying pissing is illegal cuz you cant do it in public.

i think hitting with a belt is harsh for a two year old. but ev and michelle, i dont know if you live in america but here there is not strict laws about spanking at all. if the child doesent have serious injury, the police will do nothing.

There is a big difference between hitting and spanking.
Hitting is illegal anywhere.
If you don't agree with spanking then let your partner know and decide on other form of punishment together. He has to agree to stop spanking though.
