    Default Re: Smacking your child

    Yes, but only with an open hand and only in his butt region, never anywhere else and never leaving a mark,

    That said I don't find it very effective so am trying other alternatives

    DD is only 9 months so we have no reason to smack her, but when she is older I'm sure we will if she does something dangerous like running out onto a road or if she is about to touch a hot oven (smack her on the hand as in 'don't touch') , but we wouldn't use it as discipline ie. 'If you do that again you will get a smack'and then see it through. I just don't see how you can teach a child that it's wrong to hit people or pets etc if we hit her.

    Default Smacking your child

    *grabbing popcorn now*

    I was more than smacked as a child, but only by mum (she raised four if us alone). She even slapped me across the face in front of my whole class, these days she would be locked up. Needless to say, I don't have a very good relationship with her these days.

    I don't believe it's necessary to smack and feel once you get to that point you have lost control, not of the situation but of your emotions. But I'm still yet to have children of my own.

    I do not judge those that smack but god forbid if you "hit" your child in front of me. Huge difference in a "smack" and beating your child.

    Default Smacking your child

    Occasionally a smack to the back of the hand. It's seriously the only way to get DS1 to 'snap' out of a meltdown.

    Once he's calmed down we talk it through.

    It's not assault if you love them.

    Yes.

    DD2 received a smack on the hand for trying to turn on the gas stove and a smack on the bum when she jabbed me in the head with a fork.

    The only time i ever smacked my 20mth old, the look on her face of shock horror - "mummy hurt me?!" then the hysterial crying. My heart broke and made me realise smacking is frightening and there is no place for it in our home.
