I see a headline like the article above, "Mom Tapes Toddler to Wall"... ...and think, wellll... given the options between losing it and taping a kid to a wall--the wall thing doesn't seem so bad. I can think of choices where it would be the sane option.

Of course, I also don't entirely see why you can't put a kid in a closet for a time out--if the closet is safe, lit, and a time out is a matter of minutes not hours or days. Heck, some closets are about as big as some of my bedrooms were when I was little.

All that said, if you read the article... ...I'm totally not okay with taping a kid to a wall for a long time, because you're high, and being all mean about it. That's a horse of a different color.

And in all honesty, I'm not a parent because my marriage was messed up for a long time, and I saw/see having a kid as a really bad thing to do to the kid in situations like that. Plus my husband wasn't ever around, and didn't talk/communicate/etc when he was... so there's the whole "If I wanted to be a single parent, I'd've been one" thing.
