Is spanking ok?

When it comes to disciplining children, there's a division between those who think spanking is an effective form of discipline and those who say it doesn't work. What do you think?

It's tough being a mom after 40 -- my youngest son was born the week after my 41st birthday. So I'm battling gray hairs and baby bottles (well, now that he's older, not so much of those). But I still have to keep up with his energy, and by the time I get my kids in bed, I'm just plain worn out!

I was a few years younger when I had my last one at 36. I can commiserate though, that I'm tuckered out by the time all of the kids are in bed. I always thought that once we got past the baby stage, life would get easier. I'm not sure it gets necessarily easier...it's just a different kind of tired with budding teenagers in the house! lol

Bonnie,
I am in my 40s too and it is harder to keep up with children and their energy levels! I have been a nurse for over 19 years and I can tell a big difference in keeping up with the younger staff too!! I recently discovered a nutritional supplement that has made a huge differences in my life. Body by Vi health shakes has helped me with my energy needs and I have been able to lose "my 40's fat" weight too. You should really check into these shakes!
