Re: Just need to vent....it's another spanking thread
I have to agree with this statement, wholeheartedly.

However, I do think the gentlest, effective form of discipline is the best. I am truly disturbed when parents spank in anger and anyone who refers to it as "beating his/her a$$"...that makes my skin crawl. I have friends who spank and do so with a loving heart...I don't judge them for it.
ETA: Discipline shows in the manners and conscious of the child, so I let that speak for itself.
I have "friends" that say things like this, and it infuriates me. Do they think that I beat my children's a$$es as well? If that's what they call it, then that's obviously what they think I do...
When someone says they beat their a$$, it makes me think of two grown men fighting in parking lot, hitting in the face and everything else.
