She knows where I stand though and I have made it an official rule that there is to be NO spanking or anything like that in my home, that if she feels the need to spank him she will have to go home to do it. Well, yesterday I had to make a NEW rule. My home is very non violent plain and simple and yesterday she stormed in all pist off and informed her 3 year old son if he "ever made a mess like that again" she would BREAK HIS FINGERS. I jumped right on her for that, stopped her cold turkey and yelled "Hey! DON"T say stuff like that! He is only 3 and he will believe you! Are you HONESTLY gonna BREAK his fingers? Come on now!" She replied "well, he got chips and dip all over hsi siters crib" As if that was gonna make me agree with her. I said " I don't give a crap. That was your own fault for not watching him." (she is notorious for that) "You dont threaten to do that to a child, Don't ever talk liek that to him in my home again. I don't want my kids hearing it either."
She was pretty put off by it. She did not argue back or anything. She is a young mom who really shouldnt BE a mom. No offense to young moms, I was one myself! But she HAS the resources available to her through me, i have offered her so many suggestions and she ignores them and resorts to physical punishments. Yesterday she was ignoring him and he ran out of teh house to go play at teh park here on the grounds of our apartment complex and he was out there for like 10 minutes before a neghbor finally told her. She stormed out there and grabbed him roughly and spanked him. It upset me so much i could not watch. Why should HE be punished for being bored and ignored all day?
Anyway, was I too harsh you think or do I have a right to say what goes on in my house even if its on another parent?
