    Default Smacking your child

    I don't and will never under any circumstance hit my child

    I'll have to find it but I read somewhere once that hitting/tapping/smacking the hand of a baby/toddler is one of the worst things you can do, touch is their way of exploring and by hitting their hand you send a negative message that can change their natural curiosity which can in turn alter/hinder their development , in dangerous situations that a few pp mentioned I think it's better to separate the child from the object or supervise his exploration instead of physical punishment,
    you want them to learn but not by fear

    I have and felt bad afterwards. I was smacked occasionally when 'naughty' and now and then my mum tells me to smack ds when he is too. I find getting down to his level and talking about what he did wrong and why etc more effective.

    Its odd that a have two different nieces, one was smacked and never hit/bit anyone in anger and the other was never smacked but she used to bite/lash out at other toddlers/adults in anger/frustration.

    Yes I do. Not my first tool but it's certainly 'A' tool which tends to taper off as they get older.

    Inflicting pain on my children to teach them boundaries and achieve a desired result...... NO!!! I hate smacking. We don't use that sort of punishment on slaves, wives, adults and even in regards to the consequences of breaking the law anymore.....so why is it ok to do it to a tiny defensless child. Much more effective ways of guiding our children through life in my opinion

    Breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever. Depends on the time of days she visits I guess.

    I find the naughty corner is working well for us at the moment. I just have to warn her and most of the time she will behave now
