ANY kind of physical discipline or yelling is far far far away from how I am parenting and plan to continue to parent my now 14 month old daughter.
My DH on the other hand was raised with lots of yelling and "whoopings" as he puts it. From what I've heard over the years with stories he's told me it's sounds like it was pretty rough and it hurts my heart to hear them. He laughs about them like it's funny to look back on how bad of a kid he was....It's so hard for me to understand how he could think that it is/was ok.
What's even harder now is that he believes that "spanking" is a necessary tool to use to keep kids in line.
I don't think he'll ever be as rough as his father was with him but to me even a smack on the back of a hand is too much.
What would you do or say to try and help him to maybe see things from another perspective?
He won't read anything so if anyone has any good documentaries or videos that could help me to communicate to him about this that would be amazing!!!
Thanks for any suggestions you might have!
Oh and by the way...he has not yet gone there with our 14 month old daughter and I don't think he would for a while still.
