    How do you mean? Sorry, a tad confused, I wonder how it is used but not as discipline?

    OK well bad example. 'Johnny, get down off the table' might have been better lol. The point i was making is it takes all the arguement out of it. Anyway this is geting a bit OT, there is another thread on the go about 123magic here

    We never smack, I consider it humiliating & cruel & it perpetuates violence. It also promotes a lack of control over ones emotions & an inability to communicate verbally. But when you know better you do better & I always hope that parents will read up on the effects of smacking (& actually how ineffectual in the long term it is ). My parents smacked, & maybe if I hadn't studied in areas that relate to child psychology I would have followed in their footsteps - but to be honest i doubt it as I know how it made me feel & how it changes who you are.

    I have smacked. I prefer not to. Smacking hasn't happened for quite a long time in this house.

    I mean it's not a method of discipline ee subscribe to, however, in heat of the moment we have done it.

    So when we list the things we use for discipline, smacking is not one of them because we don't believe in it.

    However, because we are fallible we have broken our own rules and done it.

    Eta I was interpreting 'method of discipline' as meaning is it part of usual parenting philosophy regarding discipline. Not as in how it is used - ie for discipline, for fun etc.
