so last night at work, we were all sititng around discussing parenting. i said OMG i saw this stick on the web last night that is made for spanking kids, it has scriptures on it! can you imagine? well one of the other mamas said, well it is just made out of a soft plastic, not wood, it's just meant to sting.....sooooooooo it's ok to *slap* your child as long as it just stings? i replied that i would NEVER want to hit my son with anything for any reason. boy did i get the *oh man she is clueless* looks. i mean really, i ONLY have a 10 month old so what do i really know? i must be naive huh???? i just was floored. then one mama went on to say that some days she has to spank her son like five times before he gets it. i said, so you think that maybe it isn't working??? he is THREE for pete's sake. nope, it works, he just needs to *get it*. wow! how is it that mamas like that have no problem spewing bad assvice? and have a captive audience at that?
