Yeah, I don't even know what to say to someone hitting a baby.
I don't see what it could possibly achieve at that age, other than fear and confusion.

Smacking your child
I'm in the middle here. I think a swat-style spanking that isn't "painful" is acceptable in some contexts.
Anything having to do with a knee jerk reaction though isn't really about discipline, it's about the parents frustration. I'm not saying its always abuse but it can be and in any case if frustration is the cause then it's not actually teaching the child anything.
I'm really against any kind only use of a belt etc. Sure older generations were disciplined in such ways and no with historical sensitivity I would not always call that abuse either.
In this day and age however, I think in a lot of cases it's lazy parenting at best and abuse at worst.

Havent read the replies but I dont think there is anything wrong with it, that said we dont spank I jsut cant do it I have before on the bottom but I felt horrible after and wondered how my kids felt the person they love to death hurting them.
I was spanked as a child and I learned real quick what not to do and if mom said no that was it. I was a very respectful child and felt bad even thinking bad things about my mom. I also learned she is super mom when I talked back in the back seat and while driving she smacked me without even taking her eyes off the road lol

Re: Smacking your child
I don't condone in any way smacking a child, toddler etc hard enough to sting your own hand, or to cause harm. I have seem someone actually slap a 6 week old baby. That is not on.
Exactly how do you keep an 11 month old crawler away from such objects that can't be barricaded off and no other place to play other than that room, while creating more than enough distractions that don't work?
ETA. My 7 year old no longer gets a smack. Stopped getting them when we she was old enough to be able to communicate with and explain why you can't play with dangerous things.

Smacking your child
When my DS started crawling i just removed him and redirected his attention to something else every time he went to touch things he wasn't supposed to (the water cooler was his main target!) and said "not for Elijah to touch" he tried maybe once or twice a day for about a week then never went near it again ( at 18 months he would point to it and say "bubba no touch"!)

Is it ok the smack a your spouse/mother/father/brother/sister/friend? No? That's called assault.
Kids deserve the same respect.

In america when they taser a criminal it is for COMPLIANCE as well as restaining them. It is called pain compliance. The police here can also use wrist locks and things as pain compliance also.
