    The OP is just looking for simple yes or no answers. So for those who don't smack, how about we keep the judgement of those who do out of it and just reply as the OP has requested?

    I used to, but I don't anymore. It doesn't work for my kids anymore. I use other punishments like time out and removal of favourite toys as my last resorts. I also ask the kids what they think would be fair punishments for their bad behaviour.

    I did it a couple of times when DS was much younger and I've never forgiven myself. I will never smack him again. Incidentally, I don't need to because his behaviour is never so out of control that he would even come close to needing physical discipline.

    Have done.. Rarely though and only when pushed to the limit. Probably during ages 3/4 and currently.

    Usually take toys or tv or movies away from her as a consequence for bad behaviour though. That's often enough.

    I dont have strong views either way, although before I had DD I swore I'd never smack... Lol... Things changed!

    Yes, but only a small tap when his behaviour has gone beyond all talking and reasoning, (so very very rare, like 3 times so far maybe) and never ever in temper.

    I put no, as I don't smack as a regular discipline tool, but very rarely I may smack as a last resort, if all else fails. Maybe once every 6-12 months? Although I really do try to avoid it getting to those extremes. I don't agree with smacking as a regular form of discipline.
