My grandson is six years old. Both his mother and her mother will let the little guy get away with anything. My son and I both make him mind. We do this with a firm and steady voice and have not spanked him yet. To this point, verbal instruction has been enough to get his attention. I hope he doesn't do anything to warrant a spanking but if he does his dad will take care of it.
The result is, his mother and grandmother can't get him to obey when they do try to get him to settle down. When he is with me or his dad he does in fact obey.
It is really interesting the way different people think. His grandmother told me that she didn't want to "be hard on the boy" because he is her only grandson. I replied that he is my only grandson as well but I don't want him to grow up to be a punk. She said she could understand that but she would leave the discipline to his dad and me.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans
Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I don't know how to be violent
