Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

What should I have done in a situation like this?ii

0 answers
I have a friend who is a single mother with kids ages 3 and 5. She works full time as a nurse and has been feeling overwhelmed with work and her kids recently. I offered to come over to give some moral support although I dont have any kids, knowing that the kids tend to be overly aggressive. While I was over, her youngest son was continuously hitting his older sister despite my friend telling him to stop. After some warnings, my friend took the child into the bathroom. Then I heard a few loud slapping sounds along with the childs wailing. What should I have done in that situation?
