    Default Smacking

    Do you use smacking as a form of discipline in your house? Not looking for a debate about it, just a simple yes or no would do! Where we live our methods seem to be in the minority (non smacker here). So I am curious to see if it's the same in here

    No smacking here (though DS is only 13 months, that might change when he's 3 ).

    None here either. Though I have given him a gentle tap on the hand when he was younger if he was ignoring me and doing something dangerous!
