How do you all feel about spanking? A short history. I have three children in their 40's that I spanked because that is just what we did back then. I have a 25yr old daughter that I raised by myself that I never spanked and she is a good, responsible, hardworking adult. (So are the other three.) Now I have twin two year old boys that I swore I would never spank but that lasted about two weeks. I have tried the time out chair - total chaos. The one in the chair is screaming and the one that isn't being punished is screaming because his brother is screaming. I have tried sending them to their room with a stern talking to but as soon as I leave the room they just follow me out crying. The first time I spanked I was change one when the other one walked in with a steak knife he had gotten out of the dishwasher. I thought the veins in my neck were going to pop I screamed so hard. The little devil just laughed and started running with the steak knife. I lost it and swatted him on the butt as soon as I could let go of the other one. Now it seems that I am daily swatting a butt or flicking a hand. I really don't want to punish - - I want to train. But with two of them going in two different directions I just seem to be smacking diapers more than I want. HELP!!!!!
