Honestly if my son gets out of hand I will spank him and I make sure he knows the reason why. Being a single mother I will have no choice to raise my son with respect and let him know that I am the boss and if he wants to act out of character then I am here to let him know that Iím in charge. I hate to see kids in the store talk back to their parents and throw things. Once I was in Wal-Mart and I believe the child was between 4 or 5 and when she asked her mother for something her mother said no and she threw a fit, fell on the floor kicking and screaming even told her to stay away from her b***h. I wanted to spank her myself. Thatís just crazy. I was disciplined to the point to where I knew what was right and what was wrong I knew what I could get away with and what I wouldnít at a young age and I turned out fine. I believe itís the lack of discipline that mothers and fathers have over their children which has the generation acting like their the parents and the parents are the kids or their friends. Its one thing to have your child be your friend and him/her treat you like you are one of the friends at school or on the corner. I work at the section 8 office and often I see young mothers dress better than their kids, they let their kids cuss and think itís cute, they let them destroy property, tell them no, slap their hands if they dare even think of raising it at them. Itís crazy Iím 25 and I wish I would even raise my voice to my mother I can see her jumping through the phone and she never beat me but she always let me know who was the boss and she still does and I love her 4 it 2day!
