My 7 year old son can be handful I know. He has Adhd and sensory issues. He's not perfect, neither am I but we try our best.
The other day, my oldest daughter was outside when our neighbor started talking to her.
Neighbor "Does your mom spank your brother?"
DD "No, she doesn't believe in spanking."
Neighbor. "That's not good." "If she doesn't start spanking and disciplining him now, he won't respect her and when he gets older he'll start hitting her too."
DD "Well she does make him to push ups and pull ups when he gets in trouble."
Neighbor "That's not good!" "That's physical abuse and she could get the kids taken away!"
- Only group members can vote in this poll.
- 4% - Yes. That's absolutely abuse!
- 52% - No...while I wouldn't do it, I don't think it's abuse.
- 44% - Lol, not abuse and sounds like something I would do.

WTF is up with your nosy neighbors? Where do these people come from? It is wholy inappropriate for her to have that conversation with your daughter!
I know right?
This lady is weird... She's suuuuper healthy. Not only are her kids not allowed to have sugar, they can't eat fruit either because of the sugar in it.
You have the weirdest neighbor! Who the hell talks to a kid about discipline techniques used in the home? That is weird.
I was never hit as a kid and neither was my brother. I have yet to punch, either one of them. And if I was going to do it, it would have happened in the last year. I cannot say I have not thought about it. Hell, even daydreamed about it, but I have never done it...lol
