    No smacking in this family.

    Reasons i were smacked as a child; not listening, touching things i shouldnt, not eating my vegies, complaining, being too loud, squabbling with my siblings etc.

    When we get to the count of 3 on a serious, non-negotiable issue where timeout is not possible at that point in time as the consequence. An example is screaming, thrashing around, biting, scratching when I'm trying to get him in his car seat.

    No smacking here either. I have tapped his hand when he was younger if he was doing things that were dangerous, but I do mean a gentle tap to get his attention. Not a smack.

    See, I count that as smacking, and that is what I have done.

    In the few times I have given a smack it has been mainly due to safety...

    I was never big on smacking anyway, but thanks to BH, it has given me the knowledge that it's not ok to smack....

    I don't smack DD. As a child, my dad would smack us when we misbehaved badly enough that he lost his temper. He once hit me so hard with a hairbrush I had a black bruise on my leg for a month. I have therefore always associated smacking with uncontrollable anger rather than discipline/teaching/directing.

    I do yell a lot though

    When there is a safety issue or when one or the other purposely hurts the other try get a smack on the bottom then put into time out. When timeout is finished I explain what they did Wrong, give a cuddle and kiss then they have to say sorry.
    They only get a small smack on the bum and only once.
    I norm use the 123 way when I get to 3 (even 2) they bolt lol if I do get to 3 it's then a time out.

    I was smacked when I was small with a wooden spoon. I would never ever use one on mine. They very rarely get smacks

    Safety and if they are doing sonething wrong on purpose and they know its wrong after several warnings. My kids push boundaries and smacking always stops them.

    I smacked my DD1 once when she kicked me while I was changing her nappy. She was about 2.5y/o at the time. I felt so bad that I actually cried. The look on her face was of pure shock and hurt. Straight away she cried and came for a cuddle. I hope never ever to to do it again. I wasn't smacked as a child.

    LOL I was going to say nothing but I must admit I've smacked jasper when he clamped down in my nipple - fast asleep - nearly three years old. It wasn't a bite, his jaw just clamped shut. Yeah I shrieked and smacked him. I pretty much aimed for the head.

    He didnt even wake up though. He did let go!
