Hello! i am amy and new. i have 2 boys and as im wanting to work with families one day im trying to gain a greater understanding of the different approaches on smacking i was hoping those who smack Could please answer any of the following its not for anything formal though its in line with my subject for uni this term it's just for personal use for me to understand varying views in the community.
What age do you think it's ok to smack a child...when do you start when do you think it needs to stop?
How do you smack? Hands, spoon etc?
Should it hurt them?
Should it leave a mark?
Should you explain why before or after or not at all?
If they do not listen after being smacked what do you do next?
What are some examples of reasons why you would smack?
if you were given resources to implement that would effectively discipline your child without smacking would you use them?
