Hi, my name is Jennifer and I’m a parent who spanks. Agree or disagree that’s totally up to you. It’s what works for us and our particular child. However, we’ve recently realized the virtues of time-out. There are those instances where removing your child from the situation that’s causing them to get in trouble truly works wonders. So, we’ve been giving it a go and it’s been very successful. Owen is a very stubborn and hard-headed child who isn’t fazed much by spanking. There’s something about standing in the corner that’s working much to our amazement. So, I’m going to make the proponents of time-out proud and say that I’m starting to see your point.
Ignore the dirt all over the poor child…this was immediately after I removed him from the sandbox/umbrella incident and he decided to lose his mind. I will post a little disclaimer and say that we’re doing time-out “Super Nanny style” meaning that we kneel down on his level and explain to him why he had to go to time-out and then finish with a hug and kiss when he’s finished serving his time. So far it’s working…..I’m saying a little prayer right now that he will continue to respond well to this type of punishment. Pray with me folks!
