To a PP: This thread was asking where the line is for those who smack. Of course anyone who ever has will give their opinion on it.

The whole shock argument sounds a bit far fetched. You can do a heap of other things to shock a child into not doing something before having to lay a hand on them and have the same outcome.

I do not smack and i never ever will. To me its abuse. Whether its a 'tap' or what ever you want to call it you are still striking your child, the person who you are meant to be protecting you are hitting and trying to control.
How about we take a lesson from what we try to teach our children. Keep your hands to yourselves!!!!!

I have one question for those posters who see smacking as acceptable and still smack (ie not those who have in the past but whirl heir kids have now grown older).
If the states and territories of Australia outlawed smacking in line with what has happened overseas (so any form of hitting a child is illegal) would you obey the law? You don't have to answer you can ignore me but I am really interested. If you do feel very strongly that what you are doing is right and works for your family, how would you react if suddenly it became illegal?
I'm not trying to bait I am genuinely interested in how people would feel about this and whther they would change.

I just have to say im sorry to anyone who has suffered abuse from their parents. And thanks to anyome who has shown concern for me and my experience i have done a lot of thinking and reading amd i just have to say, i was not abused, i have never suffered any psychological damage from being smacked hell ive never even had a bruise from it, so i guess im one of the few who smacking was not abuse to them. Unlike many other i can tell you a reason for every single time i got smacked which wasnt many times at all, and as for me and my gran being the only person who has ever smacked me she is the closest person to me and i love her the way i should love mom, i never feared her not then and not now. There really is a huge difference between abuse and smacking but being from different backgrounds and experiences its one thing we will always disagree on. On last note the law isnt always right.
