    Default Smacking questions.

    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?

    The fact that it's a first post and structured like an interview/assignment makes me think it's a student doing research. No harm in that though, but ethically it's always best to be upfront in my opinion forgive me if I'm wrong!

    Welcome to BubHub. As Zephyr has said, it sounds like you are conducting some kind of research. If you are, BubHub members are always willing to help, but please be upfront with what the project is for or what you are studying.

    Members, please give the OP a chance to explain her post before jumping too quickly

    Oh sorry I didn't mean to create a stir. Yes I'm a student of counselling and a mummy of two boys. This isn't for research in any formal sense it's just that I want to work with parents and I am trying to gain a greater understanding of smacking and I'm just curious in light of recent discussions on social media.

    Im neither advocating for or against smacking I'm
    Just trying to gain a bit of perspective and understanding.

    What age do you think it's ok to smack a child...when do you start?
    Never


    How do you smack? Hands, spoon etc?
    I don't


    Should it hurt them?
    No


    Should it leave a mark?
    Absolutely no

    Should you explain why before or after or not at all?
    I do explain to my child why I'm finding which ever behaviour unacceptable but I don't smack.
    I communicate, but never smack to reinforce it.


    What are some examples of reasons why you would smack?
    None.
