Hello guys I have a question for the public. So My husband and I have different views on how to discipline our two and half year old son. We are experiencing what people call the “terrible twos” and sometimes our kid gets out of control. I usually just do the typical pretend to threaten him and count to 3 and sure enough he stops by the time I count to 2. My husband has a different opinion and says that counting to three and pretending doesn’t work because he will eventually grow and learn that we are not being serious. My husband grew up in a home where his parents believed in spanking. He says there is nothing wrong with an occasional swat to keep him in line. What do you guys think? Who is right in this situation? Is my husbands way of thinking outdated? (email your situation to
