I have 2 children, and they react differently to being disciplined. And so I take this into consideration when they do get into trouble. My daughter is totally heart broken when you put her in time out, and spanking does nothing. However, my son is heart broken when you spank him, even if you barely spank him. My mother is telling me that I am not being consistent with my discipline and it will lead to trouble in the future. Is this the case? If so what can I do about it?
