hi loco. im so glad you have had a successful day. I know everyone is so very negative towards any smacking, but honestly, don't feel like you are the worst person in the world, just because you loose it for a second and give your child a quick slap. im not saying everyone should smack their child, im just saying everyone is human and we all have a limit. one smack on the hand or on the bottom is not going to be the end of the world for anyone. I have shared with you before loco, in your earlier thread, I found 123 magic worked pretty well for me, and removing toys, or removing the child from the situation. the trick is to be consistent. I hope you continue to have a good day. marie.
