Do any of you spank your children? Has it worked? Made things worse? Everytime my daughter flips out and we have to call the police, they tell me to spank her. They tell me what they would do with their children if they acted this way and it always includes spanking. Today I called the court to file a CHINs petition, she said I couldn't do it without a note from a therapist and also mentioned calling the police and pressing domestic violence charges. I told her what the police do when I call them and she said "Well, have you considered that type of discipline?" I've never really spanked her and now I'm considering it. I don't want to, I want it to be the last resort, but I think if my daughter had something to fear she might be more motivated to keep her mouth shut. Almost every day she threatens to kill me, tells me to F*** off, refuses to do chores, and she hits me. I need this garbage to stop right now before my two youngest witness too much. I know they will do it too if they see her acting this way. What do you all think about that? Does it work?
