Oh, Child Protective Services!

When my daughter was about four-years-old, we were out at a restaurant eating dinner.  She kept misbehaving, and I told her that if she continued with her bad behavior she would receive a spanking.  She looked right at me and misbehaved again, so I picked her up to carry her to the restroom and give her a stern talking to and (maybe) a spanking.  As we are walking through the restaurant, her on my hip, she starts wailing VERY loudly:  “Please don’t beat me, mommy!  I’ll be a good girl!  I promise!”  The other diners looked at me in horror.  It was mortifying.
