Have To Spank ALL My Sons.I have four children. 15yo daughter, ten year old son, seven year old twin sons.
My sons all acted out.
I know I'm going to have to spank them tomorrow, but need advice.
Basically, they were dishonest (to me and my husband), hid secrets, were mean and goaded their older sister (I was there and saw it) and then backchatted and shouted, before they went and slammed the doors in their rooms. It was all connected btw.
I don't know what to do. It's very, very serious I guess, but I don't know how. I usually use the belt, on my ten year old I mean, with the paddle being the most serious for my twins, but I guess it's escalated to the belt now? It will probably be very severe, and I feel sad thinking about it, and reluctant because generally they are all pretty good kids.
They are in their rooms, grounded, no priviliges, doing homework.
My plan for it goes-
Write apology notes to 15yo, say sorry
15mins in corner in living room
Spanked separately, will go youngest to oldest probably.
The spanking will be a severe hand spanking
Then a talk
Then the spoon
Then the belt
Then the last few with either a hairbrush, or the hand
Then a talk
Corner time, bare bottom, for 15mins for 7yos, 20mins for 10yo.
End of punishment, but extra chores for week.
Too much, too little, okay? Sorry, am confused.
