Permission to Castigate
I did something I'm abit ashamed of this morning, I lost my temper and smacked my 2yo charge real hard on the backend (discipline are usually time-outs although I once saw DB spank her). Its already starting to show a deep red mark and little welts right between where my fingers hit. I was trying to give her a bath and she started acting up and screaming. I don't think she's old enough to relay back to MB what happened but I'm not sure how to explain this should MB notice when she gets home this evening. I feel bad but think part of my anger is from resentment, the kid doesn't listen, ever. MB works alot and when she's here spoils the kid. I'm not trying to make excuses for what I did- but now I'm worried I could get fired. Any advice? What should I say or do, will an icepak help?
