If smacking works does that mean everyone has only ever hit their child once?

I wasn't smacked as a teenager - I think once we could outrun Mum or we didn't care if it happened, etc, it no longer worked so my parents moved on. We were probably around 9 or 10.
I have smacked but prefer not to and rarely do anyway so its not really something I've thought about... but I guess I'd stop when she was a pre-teen or whenever it stopped working.

No I get that words and teaching them right from wrong takes time but physical punishment is quite severe so my thought was for people that say it works, if it works then they would never do the wrong thing again because they are scared of being hit? Its just the few people I know who smack seem to always be smacking their kids!

Bell&Bug: I don't think there is a right age. *maybe* 3-10 and only very mild smack. Even writing if our makes me feel bad

I too was smacked as a child and despised it. I was also smacked in public and found it humiliating.
I think it's a bizarre thing that it's acceptable to smack a child for doing something wrong or dangerous, but if DH did the wrong thing that was dangerous (eg when we were driving somewhere) it would be ridiculous for me to smack him. I just don't get it.
I admire those who say they don't smack in anger. Everyone I know who admits to smacking says shamefully that they do it in anger. That really distresses me. I know when my mother hit me it was in anger and I knew how much it scared me.

If an adult refused to wear a seatbelt in my car, I would make them get out and walk. Can't do that with a child.
