In childcare you aren't allowed to smack even if requested by the parent. Some Centre's also don't let time out be used either.
Anyway back on topic....

I warn, smack on the hand, then in the cot if he's naughty. I always try and Be persistent, he knows the Cot is the final straw and I rarely give him a tap on the hand. I'd never lay my hand on another child, ever. If a child is misbehaving and the parent is not around then I get on one knee at eye level and explain in simple terms why the behavior is unacceptable. If the child continued to misbehave id tell them they had to go home and deal with their mother, I'm assuming this would be on a playdate or sleepover of some sort.

I was talking to XDP about this exact thing last night. The only time either of us would smack the kids is if it was a matter of immediate danger. Such as if they were reaching for something hot on the stove, we'd smack their hand away and also explain why. Same goes for running onto a road, putting things in electrical sockets, etc. If XDP smacked one of the kids and I didn't think it was in line with what we'd agreed then I would pull him aside and talk to him about it. But we both agreed that if someone else laid so much as a finger on the kids they'd get, at the very least, a massive talking to and would not be left alone with the kids again.
I would *never* smack someone else's child

I wouldn't smack another child or children.
I have smacked my DS before but that was when it was dangerous situations eg touching the stove top or he just kept running and onto the road and I grabbed him and smacked him on his leg. Nothing really hard but enough for him to go oh whoops, I've done the wrong thing. Apart from that I use the re-direction technieque, time out or taking away something for an amout of time.

I don't agree with it. At all.
I will ever smack anyone else's child and no one would want to smack mine. My children's discipline is my responsibility.
