well tell me how that fancy degree is working 9 out of 10 times with your spoiled son.
I can't figure this whole multiple quote thingy, so there'll be a few posts, LOL
Joe, I don't remeber saying I had a fancy degree. Maybe I did, if so, just ignore what comes next.
I have an Associates (2-yr)degree in Hazardous Materials, that took me 4 years to complete (I had DD in there). No fancy degree there.
As for spanking, my "issue" with it is this. How can I get upset for hitting (which I have), and then spank him (hitting him on the backside). The few time I have spanked for him hitting, it was immedietly followed by him saying "No hitting, hitting is naghty!) I don't do the whole "well I'm a parent, so that makes it OK" excuse. If something else is done, like the climbing of the fridge incident, yes he gets a swat as well as a time out.
My family had a long line of "spankers" and it got out of control, thankfully my Dad made sure that the family gene of spanking ended with him.
I'm not trying to be all gushy gushy soft on him, I'm trying to find that balance.
