Ok now there is a time and place to discipline your child and its not in publice. I don't know how many times I've gone somewhere and see or hear parents beating the crap out of their children. Now I can understand being firm and maybe a pinch or something but come on now a fist, a shoe? WThhha! I mean I even feel embarassed and I'm not even doing anything. It sickens me to see it. I mean come on hitting your child for grabbing a candy bar or wanting a toy. Its a child my GOD! What else should they want? It literally sickens me. I feel terrible I mean do you know how embarrassing that is for a child. Talk to them pull them aside let them know what is wrong and right and wont you will and wont accept. I just feel terrible when I see a mother or father doing this in public. I think it can emotionally hurt your children. They feel embarrassed and angry cause you just did this to them....I dont know maybe I'm taking it overboard, but I do believe there is a time and place for it.

Okay, um i am one who punishes my daughter in public. i dont use a fist or a shoe, in public or at home. and that whole mabey a pinch thing....thats abuse LMAO i wouldnt pinch daughter. anwyays, if she is just acting up and not listning to me over and over... she doesnt get away with it at home so there no way in hell shes ganna get away with it in public. what because theres peple there. if she would be embarrased by me smacking her butt, she would have been embarrased to act up.and screm and cry drawing everyones attention... so that embarrasment thingy,, yes out the window. im not a slave driver, i love my daughter more then i could ever love anyone else in this wold.BUT i am the mother,and she is the child. and when we are in public she will mind me. Now, i dont dicpline my child alot, because i do not have to because she does mind me, in the ghrochery store, in walmart whatever. but shes not perfect so she does mess up sometimes.. but i give her a few chances before i spank her. i also explain to her. why she makes mommy upset when she does this,and because she is not listening that is why she is getting a spanking. that way she knows the next time i tell her. this is your last chance, she usuallystraightens up...

Well I must say I have a child and my child is well behaived and I don't have to resort to spanking him in publice. Yes I do know my son is the child and I'm the mother but it doesn't give me the right to act out on him whenever I chose, "mess up" or not. Now GROCERY store a child is a child. There are many things they see and want. Does that mean they get it all no, they want it all of course. This is not about NOT disciplining your child its about to doing it in the correct manner, and right time. Now the whole pinch thing its actually not child abuse, I'm just saying do something instead of degrading your child in public in front of other people because this embarrasses them wether you know it or not. I can take my child out to the store and they will behaive correctly and I don't punish them in public or discipline them in public. I just think there are others ways around this, thats all.
