So we have some rules set in stone for SD9. If she breaks said rules she knows she will be disciplined. Tonight she broke one of her rules and my wife wanted me to discipline SD with a spanking. (Mind you I haven’t been doing any spanking since I was given advice about 4 or 5 months ago to let discipline be handled by SD mother, not me). I told SD to call her mom at work and tell her that she had broken the rules and my wife on the other side of the phone was SO calm and cool. Instead of giving her any type of lecture or corrections for breaking the rules all she said was (with the sweetest voice) “it’s okay just get your one little spanking and go to bed I will see you in the morning I love you!!” At this point I’m aggravated. My wife then proceeds to text me “how many times are you going to spank her? Just do 1 spank”. Ummmmmm don’t get me wrong I don’t believe in beating a child or spanking them an obscene amount of times but ONE spank???? My SD isn’t a toddler.... and that’s just not how I was raised. So instead of spanking SD I told her to go to bed and let her mom handle it in the morning. But now it all makes sense why my SD doesn’t listen to me or follow rules. If I was 9 years old and knew that I was only getting ONE pop I would do whatever the f$$$ I wanted. Now my wife is upset with me for not spanking her and telling her to deal with it. I’m so over this.
