    I don't think it's child abuse.. just shit parenting. It's not working, yet she still continues to do it perhaps she can start by lowering her ambitions.

    A little, not a lot. But fire away.

    My sister isnt a smacker and even she says this kid needs one haha
    But it is obvious her methods are ineffective and I would hazard a guess, at a glance, it is because she over uses threats and possibly doesn't follow through or gives confused messages.

    I also know of a mother or two that threatens but they never follow through. The kid keeps whining or doing whatever and they ignore it because the KNOW the parent doesn't follow through.

    "Johnny, don't play with that. Sit down and be a good boy"

    "Johnny, I said don't play with that. Now come over here and sit and be a good boy or we wont go to the park later"

    "Johnny, please stop. We won't go to the park if you don't stop"

    "Johnny, I said stop"

    "Johnny"

    "Johnny, STOP it"

    *sigh*

    "Johnny, I won't say it again, Stop that!"

    *sigh*

    "Here Johnny, play with this instead. Now there's a good boy"

    I agree with pugger, not abuse but definitely shit parenting. I a technique doesnt work try soemthing else. If punishment doesnt work, try praise or a reward system (not for the wrong doing obviously)

    I also agree with BL, I can't stand seeing mothers with chldren having tanties in the supermarket and they are trying to reasonw ith a 2 year old. You CANT reason with a 2 year old. It makes me want to smack the kid and th emother for being a moron LOL.

    I'm willing to bet this particular guardian - has had to keep escalating - because that is what punishment does, it doesn't stop the behaviour, and so the next punishment for second offence has to be more severe and so on. That woman did a lot worse than just the hot sauce.

    And I'm willing to bet she punished the child when it told the truth eg shoot the messenger, and the boy probably got away with lying more than once so that was the obviously the boy's best option.

    Ok my millie moo was on heat, i also have fudge my male, 12 months and 10 months respectively. She was showing signs of heat and i know these signs, as in stance etc. I also caught them in the act several times. I understand the nippels do not swell until three weeks, however I noticed swelling under the nipples today. What does this mean??

    When you say "in the act", do you mean mating? If they mated, she is most likely pregnant if you caught them "in the act" (mating) several times.

    How long ago has all of this happened? And do I assume these are cats?


    Also back to topic.........In my eyes this would be child abuse.
