Here's the woman/mom specific debate of the week...how does everyone discipline their kids??? Is there a right or wrong way? What works/ doesn't work for you? I tend to think that our kids know exactly what drives us crazy so my first defense against bad behavior is to try to not react at all. Kids sometimes behave badly just to get a reaction, so I try not to give any emotional response. Then I take Bryant as calmly as I can to his room. Time out is the ONLY thing that works for us, and yes, I have to lock him in his room. I've tried a wrist slap, but he laughs, I've never really liked the spanking route. What do you guys think?
This is another thing I can't make up my mind about. I've heard so much on both sides, but I have seen very little scientific research to show that organic food is actually beneficial to us. I'm leaning kind of toward thinking that it doesn't really make much difference in the long run.
Okay, here's an idea. Let's take precious little Greg's idea and flesh it out a little. I don't know about you, but I love a healthy debate. So let's do it. Let's debate whatever--get mean, annoying, whatever. Anything to give us a break from dirty diapers, laundry, or from whatever plagues you. If you have an idea, put it in the comments and I'll post it as a topic. How 'bout it people!!!
