Mom Confessions: I Hit My Kid

spanking paddleIt's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession

"Every day, I say I'm not going to spank my son, but then I hit him at least once a day. I don't hit him that hard, but he runs out of time-outs and I don't know what else to do. I'm afraid I'm going to screw him up." -- Anonymous


Is it okay to hit a child once a day if it's not that hard?
