          Shawna says that she’s a tough disciplinarian with her 12-year-old daughter but says that’s the only way she knows how to deal with her daughter’s “bad attitude.” She admits that she has smacked her daughter, pinned her down and punched the floor beside her and told her daughter that she was going to “knock her teeth out” – but says that she is not abusive.
