- Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, But the rod of correction will drive it far from him. Proverbs 22:15
I have always been of the opinion that a good spanking given in love and not in anger can be very good for a child. But, I know a lot of people will disagree with that, so I'm wondering what you think? To spank, or not to spank? And if you don't spank what is your form of discipline?
We have been spanking Alexis for quite some time now, and I'm beginning to wonder if I need to try some other forms of punishment, because we are getting absolutely no where with her behavior. She is extremely stubborn and defiant and it doesn't matter what we are telling her, if she sets it in her mind to do it, she is going to do it. I get so tired of being the bad guy all the time and spanking her, but I know I can't allow her behavior to go unnoticed.
So, basically, I'm looking to you other Mommy bloggers for suggestions on how you discipline your children and if any of you have an extremely and I do mean extremely stubborn child. I will not take offense if you disagree with me about the spanking issue, I would honestly like to hear some other opinions and maybe some techniques you've used that have been affective for your children.
