    What chick???? me?

    I am not a broken record, my children know automatically what happens if they act up.
    If its close to dinner and they get in trouble they know they are going to bed straight after their bath. In the shop a tantrum just warrants ZERO attention from me so they dont do it, or they do for 5-10 seconds and realise its getting them no where.

    I dont "suck up" to my children. They are disciplined, very respectful and very well mannered (not sure about my boy yet he is only 16 months old but he still knows he has boundaries and doesnt push them).But i do not feel the need to instill FEAR into them to get these attributes out of them.

    Do you hit your dog or do you show them what you WANT them to do instead of what they are doing?

    I know I will get called out on my comparison of dogs to children but it IS the same, if you dont want to instill fear in your pets?? why are you able to do it to your children?

    Anyways... I have no problem with how people choose to discipline their children, as BL said if a mother smacks her child in the shopping centre i dont even blink an eye. It is their chosen way of disciplining their child. I dont believe a simple smack is abuse but I have chosen to use alternative ways of punishment. That is all.

    Dan before You go off on a rant, I was refering to my sisters friend. Why would I say "This Chick" If i was talking about you!

    The question is do you think this punishment is a form of abuse. Yes or no, there is even a choice there for ones that want to sit on the fence



    P.s, I have stated before YES I have smacked my dog.

    I was not going off on a rant. I was stating my views on discipline. i am sorry i will just click a dot next time.

    OH and I was saying i am not a broken record because of the statement that those lines do your head in. Not everyone sounds that way if they choose not to smack their children. Whether you were talking about me or not you made the statement in regards to the way I discpline my children by taking things away from them.

    I am not out to insult anyone, I feel people insult themselves with other peoples words. You made yorself feel insulted by what I had said! When I type or say anything I honestly dont think how can this be found insulting to anyone? I just say it, or type it. Thinking that people will take it how it was meant and not be so darn deffensive!

    I am sure you are a GREAT mother Dan! You dont have to convince me of that or anyone else by that matter!

    Trust me some people by what I say must think OMG this bitch needs docs called and should call the RSPCA because I dont justify my choices and try to convince people I am a good person! Really i am I promise haha

    I also didnt mean you shouldnt comment and just tick, It just shows my point to chopper that a thread will go as crazy as people make it go!

    Definately child abuse. Disgusting behaviour from a so called adult and parent.
