I probably wouldn't use the term "bust your ass", no. But I don't see an issue with threatening to spank.
Nope i don't see an issue.
I think cussing at a child is ridiculous.
I don't think there's any reason to swear at the child. Plenty of other ways to threaten a spanking without resorting to cussing.
Nah i don't see a problem with it. I wouldn't say it but like i said i see no problem
I've said it to LO before :oops: But it was more out of anger and exasperation than me sitting there planning on what I would say to the child after they got out of timeout.
Usually it's when they do something REALLY bad or they wake me up 100x a night :(
I would not use that language when talking to a child...ever.
Quoting I'm Marbles:" THIS IS NOT A D&D ABOUT SPANKING!!!!!!!! It is about what was said. Here is the example: A child ... [snip!] ... do you understand?" Do you think that was appropriate to say to a 4-5 year old? AGAIN this is NOT a d&d on spanking..."
I have heard that threat many many times. I tell my oldest I'll tan his hide and he knows what that means... serious business.. haha My FIL says "i'll put my 10 1/2 D up your ass" meaning his boot..
Nope, I don't think it's appropriate.
I see no issue. She or he was being honest and I'd probably say the same thing.
I hate to hear adults cursing in their conversation toward a child. I'm guilty of it, but I dislike it and see a huge issue with it.
It could be worded differently, but I don't see a problem with threatening to spank.
If they're not going to follow through(and probably can't since that's illegal) they should not be threatening to.
