Hey guys, I just wanted to ask any of you if you smack your 2 year old when they misbehave? My daughter is a very good 2 year old most of the time and rarely misbehaves. She really isn't your typical tantrum throwing, misbehaving 2 year old, and on most occasions we discipline her by putting her on time out, and she listens. Ofcourse she'll cry but after words I ask her if she done and she'll stop crying and say yes. On RARE occasions she'll start screaming when she wants something or she fights me by screaming when she doesnt want to go to bed. I tell her first that she needs to go to bed (she's been on a schedule since 3 months old) so shes very much aware of her daily routines and has no problem walking to her room to lay down to bed. Anyhow, but at times she chooses not to listen and throws a hissy fit. I tell her to relax or mommy is gonna smack you, and only way she'll stop completely is if i smack her on the legs or the butt 3-4 times. She'll then stop immediately and goes to bed w/o a sound or she'll stop asking for what she cannot have after screaming for it. Am I the only one that does this? I don't want her to end up hating me for it but between me and daddy I am the disciplinary one and she only listens to me. Daddy talks firm with her when need to but he'd never lay a hand on her nor will he ever which is a good thing but i feel like im the bad parent.
