I don't pay to bother others, so don't bother me.
My kids got one or two (at the most) early spankings for tantrums, disrespect, or not listening.
After that, they knew the threat was good and there were no problems.
It was funny, though, when I would say loudly (while trying to keep a straight face) to my kids in the supermarket, “I’m gonna get my belt off in a minute!” There were actually shoppers who wondered if I was serious. My kids were pretty sure I was joking.
I’m amazed at all the crappy parents posting here. I’m guessing they’ve settled into the convenient “ADD” excuse, (or is it “ADHD” or some other set of letters?) for their own kids. Nothing can be done (shrug), it’s nobody’s fault (shrug), now where’d I leave the Ritalin?
I wonder how parents ever survived back before all those nifty letter groupings were discovered by pharmaceutical scientists and concerned, over-funded government bureaucracies?
“maybe you would have rather they hire a baby sitter for 2 weeks?....then you would condemn them for that...or maybe they should have just drugged the kids,right?.....”
What the heck? I don’t know where you got that from my comments. I just think it’s foolish to take kids that young on a trip to the Caribbean, there’s no need for it. The kids won’t remember it, and the parents will probably enjoy it less than if they just waited a couple years.
Exactly. When we went on family vacations, it was to visit relatives or see sights around the country that the whole family could enjoy. When my folks wanted to have some fun in Jamaica or New Orleans, me and sis got to stay with Grandma and Grandpa for a week, and everyone was happy.
Of course it is, you can’t drive there, can you?
I never did much spanking. Maybe I lucked out on my daughter and grandson, both were reasonable most of the time.
No, me meither.
Like I said, just once was usually enough because that made all future threats credible.
And the "spanking" was never more than a single swat on the backside. My kids were / are awesome (if I do say so myself).
Are you insinuating that EGPWS is smelly, unshaved, unshowered, old, and a drunk who staggers when he flys?
