Although it happened in a way I wouldn't have imagined, my husband has shown me that he has definitely been thinking about a domestic discipline relationship. Last Friday I was in a very bad mood-you know, one of "those" days! I was really being bitchy to my husband and my child. Finally, hubby had had enough. He grabbed me by the arm and dragged me into the kitchen, away from our child. Before I could say anything, he turned me around and gave me several hard swats on my rear. Needless to say, I was shocked. He then told me to go to my room, and I did. later, we talked about it, and he confessed that he felt guilty about it. I let him know that I thought he had absolutely done the right thing. For the first time in a long time, our fight didn't escalate to the point of no return. I was able to cool off and so was my sweety. I really think he is getting it now. And, I couldn't be more thrilled!

Hi Xan:
This is excellent news. I just love to feel that take-charge kind of energy from my husband. It makes me feel safe, and keeps me from spiraling out of control with my emotions. I can feel his love and security when he acts that way. I've never been told to go to my room, wow your husband is really getting the hang of it.
Great news I'm so happy for you.
Take care,
AG

That's a very good sign. Instead of feeling guilty he should feel satisfied at dealing with the situation successfully. The level of correction was very modest, the situation was controlled and you hopefully learnt a little lesson.

Nipping situations in the bud is always the best option.
