Discipline Dos & Don’ts

You’re waiting in line at the grocery store and the 4 year old in front is out of control. He’s knocking every piece of candy off the shelves as he screams, “I WANT TREATS!”. His mother quickly tugs the boy aside and gives him a big spanking to go along with a stern motion to pick up his mess. As a customer (and mother) in line, do you cringe at the mother’s behavior (because you would never lay a finger on your child) or maybe you’re that mom who spanks in public and other parents are cringing at you? Which behavior is right to discipline (spank your child or do nothing)? Take this quiz and find out:
