Re: Where do you draw the line between parental discipline and child abuse
My wife and I are different she counts to three then spanks I warn once and then spank. My daughter tests my wife and she doesn't test me because she knows daddy will spank me the next time I do that. After I spank her I usually look her in her eyes and I ask her why I spanked her. She will tell me why and I will correct it if needed. I will then hug her and let her go. That has worked for me so far.
Beware the BOOM.
