Today's Social Dilemma is is a tough one, and pretty serious too.
Hi Jaime, I know sometimes your social dilemmas are fun, but mine is serious and I'm hoping you'll read this on the air because my husband thinks I'm totally wrong, but I think I'm right. It has to do with our son, who is four years old. I heard you talking about disciplining kids today by washing their mouth out with soap, but I have a different discipline dilemma. When it comes to disciplining my son, I think that spanking is the way to go. I was spanked when I grew up and I turned out fine, so I think it's an appropriate punishment. My husband on the other hand thinks that spanking doesn't teach our son anything, and that having him sit off in a corner or in his room to think about what he has done is a better way to handle the situation. I think that's going too easy on him. I would really appreciate hearing what others have to say because I can't believe that others don't spank their children. We'll be listening. Thank you Jaime - Kate
