Re: Where do you draw the line between parental discipline and child abuse
I have only "popped" my son one time. He was doing something that could get him seriously hurt. (Jumping off of the couch when he was 1 years old.) Ever since that time, all I have ever had to do was kneel down to get eye-level with him, and tell him to stop in a very stern voice, and he complies instantly.
Of course he's only 3 years old, so I'm sure there will be some testing of the waters in my future.
