    my 8 year old daughter

    My daughter has got quite a bad attitude at the moment. Saying things like "whatever" talk to the hand. so i have been smacking her on the bottom. But what I have noticed she wasn't crying like she normally does when I tell her off. This has been going on for a couple of weeks. Then yesterday she was naughty again then she confessed that she had been putting padding down her knickers and delibretly wind me up.
    I just thought this was so funny shiffty and just like her !!
    So I am just wondering what things have other people encounted from there children that have been naughty but funny.

    Your kid is a genius...you should be proud!
    Personally think that shows a lot of brains....cheeky, but thats just kids!

    LOL
    intuitive kid and at 8

    awww...not judging u as i know kids have a lot of attitude..but smacking her to make her cry cant be the only way around her attitude. maybe have a read of some child psychology books.... my hubby bought some (we have a 4 year old -nearly 5 ...and a 18month old) and bought that raising boys book..... apparntly around 5-8ish they do have attitude as they wanna test their boundaries..... dealing with it.....there are loadsa differeent ways that require a lot of patience.

    is she too old for the sticker chart?

    When my son was about 8/9 at Jr. school, I had a letter home one day from his form teacher saying .. '' the idea for the raffle was a nice thought but unfortunately we cannont allow this sort of thing in school' ... !! first of my knowledge !! he had taken a raffle ticket booklet from a drawer in our f. room & was selling the tickets to his friends for their dinner money etc .... the thing is he didn't even have a prize lined up !! ........... he made over £3.00 ! :w00t:
    Years later at 21 ................he is now in his 3rd year AAT accounts !

    hahaha!!! can i rep ur son snowtiger?!

    ................ the youngest are always the 'bravest' in my experience and will push it further than their elder brothers & sisters !! (with them it might be worth starting at 20 instead of 10 .!! )

    soz but i don't agree with smacking, don't get me wrong we can all get to that point sometimes but it's not the right thing to do, but everyone to there own i suppose. my daughter is playing up at night time at the moment, but i find its best not to react to it, they will get bored sooner or later.

    yeah the first ones are so innoccent! u got 3 lil ones?

    well wait til they hit puberty-2 year old tantrums and 8 year olds with attitude are a breeze:thumbsup:

    swap 6x 2 year olds for my almost 15 anyday;-) and if anyone has a child psychology book to offer to help me with her I am happy to take it!!

    I just can't believe I didnt get her on approval-could have returned her:w00t:

    I have a 3 week old boy and a 22 month old boy. The nearly 2 year old is now starting to test his boundrys, we think its because of the new baby. Hes not too bad though and i have seen worse!

    Funny things he does..... Well he picks up words very very quickly. Kylie came on the music channel and he started singing "Wowowowowow" with her, and he says he wants to be a rockstar. Oh and hes starting saying "Shaba" now... all the time, everywhere, especially in shops.... very loudly

    Here's a warning for you mums. The counting thing stops working as soon as the kid realises you're not going to do anything that bad.
    My friend has a little brother around 8. He was being naughty one day, chucking his dinner all over the kitchen. The mum does the counting thing and what does the kid do... Starts to laugh and say to the mum 'you're not gonna do anything' then chucks food at his mum! :w00t:

    Next thing you know their dad comes in, tells the kid off but the kids too hyper so still chucks food.
    Dad starts courting and before he even reaches 2 the kid stops. Not sure what the dad does but i was told he *ahem* disciplines the kid if he doesn't listen. :thinking:

    you'll probably still be saying that when she out of control running amok in the streets when shes a teenager, oh my wee angel is just bored and its a phase etc etc

    no wonder some kids of today are out of control when you get left wing, guardian reading, organic eating ex hippies reading psychology books on how to look after your kid.

    Theres nothing wrong with giving the odd smack to your kids to teach them right from wrong.

    loved the story about the padding, wish i'd have had the brains to think of that when i was akid lol

    I can remember me and sister (we shared a room) ringing my bro in the middle of the night on one of them play phones and my mum coming in to smack us. Them child psychology books come in handy (placed just infront of your bottom but underneath the covers - ha ha).
    I've only smacked my girl the once - its used as a last resort (she's 11 now).
    Funnily enough that one time I went to give her a little smack and caught my hand on the side of a table instead and dislocated my finger!! Then she made the mistake of laughing too close to me and got a quick one with the other hand. We both laugh about it now!

    when my 18 yr old was 3 we were living in Australia and we went to the Trotts (a horse and buggy race) we set out picnic chairs up and were watching the start of the race when all of a sudden she got off her chair turned her back to the race and pulled down her pants showing her bottom, still dont know why she did this - it was the one and only time I ever smacked my child, my hand just automatically went to her bottom, ive never let her live it down wish I had taken a photo instead of smacking her, she cried and cried all the way home, and I was horrified at what she had done

    My eldest is 14 and i used to smack her alot when she was little, my little guy is 6 and have smacked him too, although i do try not to as i know it really isnt on, there are many ways to punish a child and smacking is one of the easiest. i dont want to get into the rights and wrongs of smacking except to say, although i have and still would, it isnt right

    wasn't totally directed at you, meant to quote magicbeans.

    i actually agree with you, if the naughty step and stickers work then excellent but i get fed up of left wing do gooders saying how wrong it is to smack your kids.

    i got the belt rarely, the odd smack then the threat of the belt usually was enough to keep me and my brothers on the straight and narrow and i don't think it done me any harm or it seems your good self.

    magicbeans here.....

    i cannot say i have never hit my child.... i have hit my 4 year old and it feels awful! like sassie was saying...u still know its wrong...it happens when I AM NOT IN CONTROL OF MY EMOTIONS..... i am the adult...they are the child...whats violence teaching them?

    anyways sometimes u do lash out and feel bad after...but my main point was how the Original poster seened to have made it a habit and was surprised her kid wasnt crying as normal... surely u dont wanna make ur child cry through pain to teach them whats right or wrong. there are som many techniqus out there.... sticker chart and nauhty steps do work...sticking to ur word works....

    and yep i was beat a lot as a kid..... y inflict that on a small child testing their boundaries...

    just cos i dont believe in smacking doesnt mean i dont believe in boundaries and discipline...u gotaa be civil and an adult about it......

    if you don't want to smack your kids then fair enough, if other methods work then fine but there is nothing wrong with the occasional smack.

    to be honest i havn't the inclination to get involved in this if the naughty step works for you then great just don't look down your nose at people who are obviously not as enlightened, adult or civil as you.:thumbsup:

    girls of around 8 years old can be very nasty and verbal. I don't smack her hard just enough to stand up and relize that she is doing wrong but the point is all along she had wind me up so she knew i may give her a smack on her behind but she had put padding down there and she normally crys but she hadn't so I was shocked when brought out this wad of padding it just made me laugh so much.

    at the end of the day when you hit someone that cannot defend themselves its abuse, if you walked into a pub and did something that was not to someones liking and you got a belt, you would do them for assualt, so explain the difference

    Everyone reaches a certain point and then snaps. From experience - words can be alot more hurtful than a quick smack, and the effects last alot longer. When an animal has enough of their offspring they don't sit them on a step (although I do agree this works for alot of kids) they give them a quick slap. Not a punch/kick etc. just a quick smack to let them know enough is enough. Just my opinion for what its worth.

    i dont exect you to humour me, i am having an adult conversation, i have smacked my children, and sometimes very hard, but i also know that it isnt on. No your right someone grabbing my boob or something as extreme would either get a smack in the bits or would be arrested, see i can fight back either way, the children cant. As i have said i have smacked both of my children but am not going to justify it being ok to do so, cause as a grown up i know it isnt ok

    and its rediculous comparing a stranger grabbing my boobs or throwing a drink over, to a child who doesnt want to toe the line
