I wish I could find a really good book of punishments that work...Ive tried tips from Nanny 911...but that doesn't do squat.

C&K*s Mommie replied: our kids nowadays makes me wonder how people (like my parents) were one of multiple siblings. I wonder how their parents stayed sane. rolleyes.gif

I mom had 6 and 3 of us were under 5 at one time..... rolling_smile.gif

C&K*s Mommie replied: my (living) GMA had 13 on my fathers side, and my other GP's had 11 (mothers)--- not once did they commit themselves to Chattahoochie or any other asylum!

3 under 5 blink.gif WOW!!! ohmy.gif my oh my!!! your mother has my respect! happy.gif

luvmykids replied: I'm in your boat too, Brianne. I always wonder why my mom could just give me a look and I KNEW I'd better knock it off. What is it about the older generations that it just took a mean look or a head shaking or finger wagging to scare the kids straight?

C&K*s Mommie replied: and why does it seldom work for our generation? Christian I can do that with, Kellie is a totally different story-- she will just smile or laugh and my heart melts and I forget what I wanted her to stop doing. rolleyes.gif

moped replied: Brianne, I have a book called "Setting Limits" it is very very good.......................PM me if you want the author!

My Dh and I talk about this often and we agree on this.

When I was growing up, spanking your child wasn't an issue that was shoved at us (as children) everywhere we turned. Now, children (some fairly young) look their parents in the eye and TELL THEM "lay a hand on me and I'll call the cops!"

OMG! If I sad that to my parents..... I shudder just thinking about but I KNOW, my parents would have given me a darn good reason to make that call !!

Although I wasn't spanked as a child, I KNEW that my parents could *if they wanted to*.
Like my Dh says "Hey, it's not only my parents that could knock the h*ll outta me, my friends parents could if I misbehaved and then I'd get it when my parents were notified".
It never happened to my Dh and I, but I think it's just the *knowing* that set enough fear in us!!
I have been very fortunate as a parent where I've never felt the need to spank my kids..... but I also don't think badly about parents that do give kids a swat on the butt (I am not talking about hitting... big difference between discipline and abuse)

JMHO smile.gif

mckayleesmom replied: and dh do believe in spanking if necessary....Usually after her warnings are up...But spanking doesn't register with her either....she doesn't care. rolleyes.gif

Bee_Kay replied: I completely agree Brianne smile.gif

I didn't mean to insinuate that I don't believe in it, I do when necessary smile.gif
