We have our two wonderful GSs and their mum staying with us for a week. We have had a fabulous time but at times they go completely over the top with their behaviour. The eldest 5 year old said to his mum 'how many warnings are you giving us this time?'.
Because they are no real deterrents against their misdemeanours, other then the usual naughty step, removal of privileges, sent to bedroom, etc they run riot. I know boys can be full on but at times I feel they need a short sharp light smack on the bottom, but of course in this day an age this is a complete no no.
My mum in the 1950s occasionally smacked my hand and I learned quickly to behave myself.
Does anyone else feel tempted for a quick bit of a non violent reprimand or can you manage to keep the peace in a different way ?
