    I had the exact same conversation with my 6 year old yesterday after she hit me and threw things at the window in a fit of rage.

    Yes we do, not all the time but if it's dangerous behaviour or something he has been told not to do 1000000 times then yeah he will get a smack on the bum or hand.

    Haha!! This reminded me of what my mum did for my brother. He went through a shocking phase of hitting (mum is sure it was from a little boy at playgroup who would bail him up & hit him) anyway mum would not tolerate it so when he hit my little sister after she had told him the same thing you said about the police and had still done it again she packed him up in the car & drove him all the way into town (45 minute drive) to the front of the police station! Then he finally got it. He is a great kid (19 now) but was definitely dad & mums challenge, the other 4 of us had to 3 for out countdown but he had to have it extended to 10! I guess discipline sometimes needs to be adapted to the child.

    I think it does make sense if you think of it like this…kids copy adult behaviour & learn from us how to deal with other people.

    So if you wouldnt treat others in your life that way (hitting them or tapping them to alter their behaviour) then you probably don't want your child to model that behaviour either.

    The fact that some people say "but my child is too young to understand any other form of discipline" is what I don't understand, because if they are too young to understand then why use discipline at all & why not just distract them from the bad or dangerous behaviour & teach them the right behaviour when they have the mental capacity to understand. Tone of voice is usually enough for a child to understand that something is a no go & as long as you give them a cuddle afterwards so they know you still love them it can be very effective. And as other posters have said, it is our responsibility to make a safe environment for our children rather than our childrens responsibility to learn to avoid things that are dangerous in case they get a smack.

    they had a story on sunrise this morning about a similar thing - a woman smacked her son so he went into his room & called the police……she then had to explain why she had to hit him etc.

    I would Neva smack someone else's child and I would be so mad if someone smacked my child even a family member.
    We don't smack in our house and it works for us.

    on doc phil the other day they had a story about a man who walked up to a kid in a shop (the kid was with the mum & i think about 5 years or younger) who was having a tantrum & smacked he smacked kid right in front of the mum - he got a 6 month jail sentence. Some people just don't get it, it's never ok to put your hands on someone elses kid like that.
