Should family be able to spank my daughter?

So my when it comes to discipline, I view spanking as a very last resort, and to due it with a clear mind, no anger. Other forms of discipline exist, and I think those should be approached before any else. Ex. Physical training (wall sits, Laps etc) time out, chores. Anyway, my husband wants to give rights to my daughters aunts and uncles, also grandparents to spank her, but i firmly believe if she gets spanked, it should be by me or her father ONLY! What are your opinions on this, please?!

Only momma and daddy. NO one else would spank me as a child nor would my parents let them…

Absolutely not. That is in total violation of her body to just have whoever spanking her when they see fit.

UHHHH HELLLLL NO they should not be touching YOUR CHILD. There are plenty of other ways. And if they can’t keep there hands off then they don’t watch your child. Simple

Just depends on why she would be spanked. Are they going to be watching her all the time? Not sure how old she is either. Now if she did something very dangerous to risk hers or other family members life, then yes a spanking should happen. If she is beating up on another kid, then yes… If she is just being a grouch and not wanting to listen, then no.

Only mom and dad should be able to spank your kids.

I believe only you and Dad are allowed to spank her

Nope! I wouldn’t allow it

No spanking whatsoever

I don’t allow anyone but myself or my Husband to spank our children. Because what if someone decides to call CPS out of spite? Then you have to explain any marks on your children that you didn’t put there. There’s just too much that can go wrong when you allow other people to discipline your children.

I don’t believe in physical activity as a punishment. You are instilling at a young age that exercise is a negative thing.

No spanking period there is no need for that. Have them sit on their bed for awhile

It depends on the situation and age of the child. If the parents are around, absolutely not but if the child is staying with the family member and other discipline has failed then I would allow it but as you said only as a last resort. Maybe they should even call y’all and let you talk to the child about what they are getting in trouble for before they spank. Also, I would never allow spanking with anything other than the hand.

I’ve popped a view of my nephews on occasion, my son has been popped once or twice by his grandparents. It takes a village.

I would say only mom and dad.

Although I will say I don’t agree with the physical training being used as a punishment. I wouldn’t want my child viewing working out as a punishment…
