    No, I don't think it works. There is always an alternative. I worked 10 years in child care and cc workers manage to never hit children despite all sorts of scenarios.

    No.

    I don't believe in humiliation as a form of discipline, so pain and fear is definitely against my parenting beliefs.

    Yes, though very rarely.

    My parents raised their 3 kids very well and it included the occasional smack when it was warranted so I'm not opposed to a disciplinary smack.

    I have been in cc for over a decade, but still don't judge parents who choose to smack on occasion. Kids have a way of pushing buttons with parents that are simply not on anyone else. What I saw in the carpark was fine, and as cc workers we would not come across many scenarios parents do. We don't take kids into shops, or into busy carparks, but parents do.

    On occasion yes, which is why we started using 123 magic.

    Nannies do, which is where i did most of my cc work. I don't judge parents who use it as a last resort either, i just know that it's possible to gain the skills to not have to resort to smacking. So I do judge parents who smack and don't try to find a better way.
