If I don't spank my kids, they'll grow up and hit me. *Oh and I should have my kids taken away for the way I currently punish them*
October 5, 2012 at 1:23 PM

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!"

Seriously lady??

Do you feel that push ups and pull ups are physical abuse? (I make the kids do an average of 5 to 15 push ups or pull ups depending on the "crime")

    That;s not good. If neighbours talk like that, they won't be respected, and then they'll end up getting hit

    I wouldn't do it. But, I don't think that it's abuse. I'm a spanking parent.

     You have the weirdest neighbor! Who the hell talks to a kid about discipline techniques used in the home? That is weird.

    That's okay.

    And for the record, as a non-spanking parent, I don't think your kids will grow up to be serial killers or anything X-D

    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.

     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

    You live among some rather colorful individuals.

    My kids have run laps in the back yard when needed.
