    Default Smacking your child

    No. IMO smacking isn't ok. It's used to inflict pain, intimidate and frighten a small human. If it isn't ok to hit an adult human, how could it be ok to hit a small one?

    I am not anti-smacking, but it's definitely not my first port of call. I don't like doing it and I've not found it a useful tactic tbh.

    I've smacked, but not often. I'd say not at all this year, maybe once last year. That kind of irregularity.

    I think it can potentially be useful in some situations, but mostly, it's not and there are more effective options in many cases.

    A parent at school told me the other day that her 3 year old was out of control and hit her so he got a smack for that.

    WTF? Let's teach a small person not to hit by hitting them? I don't get it.

    I think there are many effective ways of disciplining a child without causing them physical harm or pain.

    Default Smacking your child

    I'm taking bets on how long this thread will last....anyone?!

    DS is only 15mths so not sure on our future. But my current feeling is to avoid it at all costs - apart from maybe a little smack on the hand.

    I recently raised my voice at him when he started biting me - hard - and the look on his face before he burst in to tears was heartbreaking.

    Default Re: Smacking your child

    I think a small smack on the back of the hand is ok, mostly in a dangerous situation where you need to get the Childs attention quickly and they are not giving it.
    I'm not against it as such, but other than above I don't really see a need for it, other forms of discipline seem more effective.

    Wow I'm pleasantly surprised to read how many people out there do not smack, I believe you really need to practice what you preach!

    Of course, some of our parents hit us , but didn't they used to do a whole lot of other things back then we are happy to go without doing now - drink driving, smoking with children in the car, eating hot box meals when pregnant...ETC
