Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

Thanks for your insight... and I got a good chuckle out of the above tidbit. Believe you me, we have tried it all. And I do find her clothes rather inexpensively - primarily shop at a 2nd hand...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

Parentastic, thank you for your detailed reply. I'm not sure how long ago you posted. I never received a notification so I'm just now reading it today (3/5/12). Your approach makes sense. And to...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

Ok, yes, spanking with a belt and leaving welts severe enough to warrant an ER trip is not right. However, that judge was outside the law to say "we don't spank kids." because it is not illegal -...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

Actually it is not illegal - not in Texas, anyway.

Re: Step parent/step child discipline...

Xero, are you a step parent? Do you have children who spend time with a step parent?? My original questions were aimed at people who are in a similar situation as me so just curious about your...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

Yes, 3/4 of her entire life... she likely does not remember me NOT being in her life. Only in the last couple years has it become a definite struggle due to BM's influence. K has become old enough...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

I do use this approach with her. She's only tried it a couple times in the midst of a total meltdown. After the fire is out I talk with her. Our relationship is overall pretty good... I'm just...

Re: Step parent/step child discipline...

A few things - #1 She can't revoke visitation without a court order. My husband and I both welcome BM to take us to court for any matter she wishes. She won't do it b/c she'll lose. She won't do...

Re: Step parent/step child discipline...

I respect your opinion. My personal issue with K's BM becomes more than just "she doesn't want me to spank"... it becomes a card to play by K. Her BM tells her all the time that I have no...

Re: Step parent/step child discipline...

Effective correction of disobedience, rebellion, belligerence, etc. is what I call discipline. When grounding, revoking privileges, time outs don't work *which they do not for all kids at all stages...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

Unfortunately for BM, she will lose the custody battle should she choose to go there. Her husband/father of her 2 boys is constantly in and out of jail as well as their house and last week grabbed K...

Re: Rock -> ME <- Hard Place

As far as diffusing the situation... I'll explain a little more about what happened b/c we...

Step parent/step child discipline...

I had great fun reading the spanking debate threads! So I wanted to ask my own questions regarding spanking and other forms of discipline from a step parent perspective.

Unhappy Rock -> ME <- Hard Place
