    Default "spin off" what does your child do to get smacked

    Didn't want to de rail bell and bugs thread but was wondering what do your kids do specifically that gets them smacked? Is it attitude, behavior , safety ? My DS is only 19 months old and I don't think he's ever done anything (yet!) that would warrant a smack?

    Safety. Letting go and running in a car park. Climbing the change table and jumping off. Hand in the car exhaust when it's hot.

    DD 1 has been smacked and now knows of we say 'smack on your bum' she stops in her tracks immediately. Seriously only smacked her a few times for the above reasons and now we use the threat and she stops.

    It's not PC to smack but I'm ok with it.

    Pretty much what Izzys Mum has said. Slipping my hand in car parks on near the road, touching power cords etc... Also when they can't be reasoned with and time out and giving clear direction doesn't settle them. They get warned before hand, and it's only one smack.

    Nothing. I don't smack and don't believe there is a lesson to be learnt from smacking.

    Safety. Getting out of a carseat at around the age of 4 warranted a small smack when I told her to put her arms back in and she refused. I won't have her unsafe. End of story.

    The only time I ever smacked my dd was when she bit me while breastfeeding when she was a toddler. It hurt me so bad the smack was my natural reaction to get her off. I felt awful about it but she has never bitten me since.

    Otherwise I don't smack at all. I think there is always other options at any age.

    Sometimes gentle discipline teaches them nothing. My dd has only been smacked a couple of times, and only when it was an "act-fast" safety issue where nothing else would work for her.
