    Maybe even send their meal back & make them miss out.

    2 - spit in your face and your friends faces.

    My face
    Tbh i would most likely slap his face, i would not mean to but spitting generates a VERY powerful reaction in me and the smack would be out before i had even thought about it

    My friends face, a smack on the **** and a severe punishment (loosing an item / sent straight to time out)

    3 - hit you hard on the head repeatedly.

    at 5 i would tell him once not to hit me, i would explain that it hurts and makes me sad.

    If he did it again i would smack him back and tell him how do you like it when i hit you on the head?

    I do not see the harm in number one, if my child can not keep himself from running around a resteraunt then i will keep him from doing so and deprive him of a treat for failing to have appropriate behaviour

    Number 2 I KNOW the smack would be not an appropriate behaviour but i do not think i would even think before i did it, i would likely be very sorry and guilty.at the reaction (not the smack itself but the uncontrolled behaviour of.the smack)

    At the moment ds has spat at me and my urge was to whack him one, instead i sat him on his bum and told him we do not spit at people and he had s time out a BUT at 5 a child should know damn well it is wrong to.spit at people

    Number 3 as above, hitting people in the head repeatedly is NOT a behaviour a 5 year old raised by me.would think is acceptable.
    It is not a '5 year old behaviour'

    My two year old knows.not to do that.

    So you expect a 5 year old to be in complete and utter control of his behaviour, yet you would slap him as it would be an uncontrolled response? And, hitting people is not 5 nor 2 year old behaviour, but that of an adult?

    I would expect my 5 year old to be able to control their behaviour in unprovoked circumstances yes,
    If a child spat in.his face and he hit them then i would expect tge same reaction i would give him (an apology and acknowledgement that while i did not like his behaviour mine was unacceptable also)

    The running in a resteraunt thing is completely different.

    as.for smacking well when the law tells me i may not smack my child then i won't, until then idgaf what some random on the internet thinks.

    As i said above i would know my reaction was unacceptable for the spitting thing but its likely it would just happen, i would also likely apologise to my child for the reaction and explain, why i had done it.

    Give up already, if you do not like what i have to say go use the block button

    Give up? Yes. After that reply I think I will.
    I hope you manage to control your reactions better when working in child care.

    I believe the op asked what a person would do, i do not know what i would do.

    My two year old gets sat down and a time out as well as an explanation as to why it is wrong.

    as i said i *know* the reaction would be 'wrong' and unacceptable but i would also likely slap an.adult if they spat in my face

    Slapping a child isn't smacking. It's assault and you could be charged for it.
