disciplining (including spanking) family members children?
So, we had the annual family fight this year (lol) - and one hot topic for debate was the discipline of a family member's child by another family member (please note, this was in the ABSENCE of any sort of discipline by the actual parents)
I know where I stand on it, but i figured it might be a hot topic for debate.
Whats everyone's stance and opinions on disciplining, spanking, and/or correcting a family member's child in your home, especially, but not limited to times when the parent(s) themselves are doing little to nothing to control their child?
I grew up where not only was this okay, and expected, but i would often get it twice once mom found out aunt sally had to discipline me. Now? well people are entirely too sensitive about their own abilities as parents, and seem to get very insulted. Either way - it made the holiday weekend exciting! break out the popcorn.
