    How about trying an intelligent argument instead of exagerating any opinion you disagree with, to ridicule it? I know discipline can be an emotional topic, but lets try to be civil. (I'd really better keep away from the circumcision forum!)
    Calm down .... 'beating the crap' out of someone is a well known figure of speech.

    Please don't forget the context that these particular kids are out of control and think its all a big laugh. (Not blaming the parent at that age BTW!)
    If the kids are out of control then chances are it is the parents fault (not being clear, strict, consistent etc..). It happens to the best of us. Changes in parenting tactics (NOT involving giving the kids a belting) would be something to look into.

    There is a reason to not hit your child 10 times. It's abuse. It teaches kids through fear and ... Damages them psychologically.

    Smacking isnt going to do anything in this situation. Providing a safe environment is the only resolution by making sure they cant get out in the first place.

    I think that has been covered. I said, off the cuff and wrongly, to threaten it.
    As unpleasant as smacking is, there are worse things possible.
    I've seen similar arguments when parents resort to putting a harness and leash on their toddlers in public places. We should not rush to judge other parents - not all kids are as perfect as our own.

    OP I rent and the first time my children opened the front door (deadlock switch and push button handle, both very easy to unlock and reach) and went out the front unsupervised we bought a chain lock and installed it the next day. The real estate cracked the ****s and I told them very firmly that I would not compromise on my childrens safety. I'll replace the door if needed. I dont care.

    You need to put your big mummy knickers on and secure the freaking front door NOW. There are no excuses.

    Yeah can't agree with smacking. How am I suppose to teach my young men not to get into fist fights when they've been smacked all their life?

    The point is theres no use smacking. Its up to us a parent to do all we can to protect our kids. Not smack them because of our own negligence.
