I'm looking for some input on this one.  How do you discipline your young children?

Thank you so much for your comments!


I certainly understand the spankings when a child does something dangerous, but I'm curious about something and please don't think that I'm trying to start a fight.

How do you justify hitting a child to teach them that hitting is wrong?  Is it in line with "this is how it feels and you shouldn't make others feel that way"?


I know that people who are advocates of spanking say that it can NEVER be done in anger.  One of my coworkers was sent to her room to wait until her father calmed down because he never wanted to hit her in anger.  He wanted her to understand that the spanking was as a consequence of her actions, not making him mad.


As far as time-outs go, they are sometimes effective for us, but we do use them consistently and we also use the 1 minute per year rule.
