We are regular church-goers and I get regularly told that I need to spank Emma. I've been told about all the Bible stuff about spanking and that I'm just being emotional in not wanting to spank. But something in me doesn't feel right about spanking. And my dh has a bit of a tetmper. I don't really feel like he would hurt our dd, but I think spanking could lead to accidental hurting. Anyway, I'm not entirely convined I shouldn't spank. I see all the other kids in class with Emma, her age or younger, who behave so well. Emma is a good baby and a lot of fun. Until she is told no or something is taken from her. I get kinda embarassed when she throws these tantrums. But what concerns me more is when she repetedly does unsafe things, like climbing on the couch and running across it, nearly falling on her head. I don't want to totally control her. I just want a little obedience. ANd less fit-throwing. Any ideas?
