Original Post

I actually heard a mother say this to her children today, and did a double take. I just couldn't believe she would say that!

Granted I'm not a parent, but I can't understand actually encouraging your children to fight.

Your thoughts? Would you say that to your children??

My dad always said "dont whine about it, fix it"
but that didnt apply to hitting people.

Wow, I wonder what will happen when those kids have to interact with other's in school and in life.

No I would not say that to any child, but I do know plenty of parents who would, my sis in law particularly.

I dont encourage violence in my child and often want to step in when I see other peoples children hitting.

Well, if it were a sibling that had been snarky all day and worn out mom's patience too...I could see that happening...

that's kind of messed up- i have 4 and havent used that one yet- oh wait! once when my 3 year old was smashing my 6 year old I let her hit her back just hard enough to teach her a lesson. Now she rarely gets hit by her little sister.
