Well the other day I was at the supermarket. DS was being a pain in the butt trying to climb out of the seat and thinking it was funny. It wasn't it was freaking me out - I could just see him taking a tumble. Anyway I told him I was going to smack him if he did it again. No sooner had I said this than he did it again - BUT there was a middle aged woman in the isle that gave me a filthy look. So I didn't smack.
Now I don't want to be a mum that threatens and never disciplines my kid BUT it appears that smacking in public is a real social taboo.
Does anyone else feel this way?
