We both are firm believers that sometimes a spanking is needed, but where we disagree is a very touchy subject. My husband is their step father but feels that since he raises them, he should be able to discipline them as their 'real' father. Their biological father would assuredly assault my husband if he did this, and I feel that my husband has enough freedom in disciplining them since he can ground them, send them to their rooms, do everything EXCEPT spank them. Now my husband says I am not submissive and we are constantly fighting over this. I don't want to be dishonoring to God as a wife, but I do not know how to handle this.
