Subject: Guilt and Affection

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: 11:40:57 07/30/21 Fri

In other parenting forums, I've heard other moms talk about feelings of guilt after they've had to punish their kids. I've always wondered if it's bad that I really don't feel any guilt about it.

I feel sympathetic, but I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong by spanking. But now I'm starting to feel guilty about not feeling guilty if that makes sense.

However, I have noticed that I tend to be extra affectionate with my son when it's time to spank him. So lots of hugs, speaking to him in a gentle tone, back pats. I even smile at him when he's about to be spanked. That probably sounds weird but the intent is to show that I'm not angry with him and that everything is totally OK between us. I think it helps him stay calmer than he would be if I were red in the face and screaming at him.
