Imagine this response.
-you're right, honey, seems it's back to the headboard.
-ugh, you can't even get that right. You mean drawing board!
-you, my dear, have no idea how babies are made.


But #22, what if OP really is a bad parent? Maybe they are abusive. Maybe they are an alcoholic. Maybe they never spent time with their daughter. Maybe they deserved this little "slap in the face".

OP, your kid will never be too old to get the shit spanked out of them for being disrespectful..

That would just prove that OP is a bad parent

I don't get why my comment was down voted. Would assaulting his child not make him a bad parent? The guy who made that suggestion is absolutely wrong about the best way to go about it. Assault is not the answer

Because to a lot of people, spanking isn't abuse. It's not beating a child senseless or even doing any serious damage. It's a smack on the bum to teach children discipline and to teach them to respect their parents, caregivers and any other authority figures they may have growing up. It's not like they're getting out a whip to belt a child's backside to the point where it's raw and bleeding. It's a smack, hard enough for a second or two of pain but not to hard to cause damage.

Except that studies have proven that spanking is never used right like 90% of the time (meaning only on the butt, when the parent is in control of their emotions, etc) in reality it is too hard to be fair with physical punishment. Not to mention Op is far too old for that now, and something as simple as "disrespect" probably doesnt warrant spanking

This is a good article to further read on it. Science and psych studies have already proven that the best methodology to raise kids it to take the time to sit down and reason with and explain things to them. Kids understand reason. However most parents either don't have the time or patience to do it and may resort to spanking while angry or frustrated (never the right time to serve physical punishment) spanking can work if executed properly but 90% of the time it never is (lot of people lying to themselves about this one too). I know several friends under going therapy for family abuse that started as spankings going too far etc and knowing these things, spanking really shouldn't be considered unless proper conditions of justice are met as prerequisites. Here is the article I was referring to: http://gauss.unh.edu/~mas2/CP24.pdf

Also a first real time study of parents spanking their kids: http://healthland.time.com/2011/06/28/would-you-record-yourself-spanking-your-kids/

Is this her attempt to tell you that you will be a grandparent and she expects you to help raise said child? We need follow up!

I'm sorry OP. That sucks. I'm sure she just meant because she was such a screw up and wasn't trying to directly insult your parenting skills? Hopefully. FYL, and that's when you say "well I always did like your sister better"

Most 19 year olds have a young and all too idealistic view on the world. After she has a daughter she will come crying to you and thank you for loving her so much. So I wouldn't take it too harshly for now, give it a few years :)


Today, I had to take my daughter to the ER. Her brother had bet she couldn't go the whole day without talking. So to win the bet, she tried to super-glue her lips together so she couldn't accidentally say anything. FML

Today, I spoke to a highly recommended therapist for my special-needs child. After 45 minutes of describing our challenges, heartbreaks and other very personal information, she told me that her schedule was permanently full. But she invited me to go through the phone book to find someone else. FML
