    What rot. Police only taser someone who is a danger to themselves or others. You can prevent a child from being those things without a smack.

    That's a whole other topic, but attitudes and misconceptions like that are why the public have such a problem with police being armed with tasers. But as I said, another topic for another day.

    The majority of the time yes. What about the toddler who thinks its funny to play with power cords, heaters etc..? And laughs and thinks its a game when you growl, relocate and redirect said child? Electrical objects are dangerous and can be extremely painful, even fatal. a small smack on the hand to create an association of pain or fear in these cases IMO is a much better option than the game they think it is.

    We should just taser them, that'll learn 'em.

    As parents it's our job to prevent our children from touching these (by having a safe home and in public by watching your kid properly) until they have an understanding of why we don't touch it... rather than 'don't touch it or Mum will hurt you'.

    You can have a safe home but there are always going to be unavoidable dangers. I feel for the parents who have several toddlers on the go at once.

    I do think there is a difference between a light smack and the boot in the back, massive welts from belt buckles, bruises in the shape of hand prints and whatever else we were subjected to as kids.

    I often have 3 toddlers (two 1.5 year olds and a 2.5 year old). I choose our destination based on the risk factor and have to utilize restraints such as prams and for my 2.5 year old a harness backpack.

    Does a light smack really work though? I think I'd laugh at my mum if she gave me a 'tap'. Only a real whack scared me into submission.

    It does for dd2(11 months) it doesn't need to even sting. Even just with 2 fingers is enough to deter her.

    A genuine question - I could never "hit/tap/put 2 fingers" on my child under any circumstance, especially a baby at 11 months? Do you feel horrible or guilty afterwards?

    Wow, your 11mth old gets a smack even? Does she even really understand what she's done wrong at that age?
