Stepparent can legally spank skids!!!!!!! Yay!!!!
This is my 3rd time writing on this subject. Though I haven't decided yet if I will be spanking my SS, after a little research & some phone calls it is completely legal & NOT I repeat NOT a form of child abuse to spank your step child much less your own kids. I know many of you would consider me evil & what not, but I know I'm not. I love my SS, & with DH permission I'm free to spank as a form of punishment. BM doesn't agree, but that's just to bad. So far I have been in SS life since he was born, I have done everything his BM does for him. Feeding, diaper changes, taking care of boo boos, going through sleepless nights for taking care of SS when he gets sick, financially support, teaching, even helped in planning his first birthday party. So when it comes to descipline why should I be excluded by BM now? I don't think so...
And by excluded I mean she literally excluded me, she told DH, that she doesn't mind if DH family (dad,mom, aunts, uncles) spanked SS, but she does mind it if I do. Now if she was more like "I don't want SM spanking because I don't spank my own son" or "I want the spanking to be exclusively left up to mommy & daddy" then I could understand that. But to just exclude me is unfair to me on her behalf.
So this post goes out to all you BM & SM, who critized me for even thinking about spanking. It does not make me an abusive parent nor a bad parent.
