I want to share with all Mums To Be and Mummies on all the need to know from pregnancy, to hospitalization to celebrating their child's 1st month and 1st Birthday Celebration. Some of the medical/health entries are simply reposts, and not written by me but for my reference. Happy parenting.

A Word About Spanking
Perhaps no form of discipline is more controversial than spanking. Here are some reasons why experts discourage spanking:
Spanking teaches kids that it's OK to hit when they're angry.
Spanking can physically harm children.
Rather than teaching kids how to change their behavior, spanking makes them fearful of their parents and merely teaches them to avoid getting caught.
For kids seeking attention by acting out, spanking may inadvertently "reward" them — negative attention is better than no attention at all.
