At my playgroup we've had parents use time out and taken home and no-one has batted an eyelid. We do what works for our kids.

Honestly I wouldnt have done or said anything. What would you have said? unless she used excessive force or was being abusive, it wouldn't be my place to say anything.

I wouldn't have said anything either, it is a legal form of discipline (for now). I was actually talking to a friend the other day after the other smacking thread, and she said she was glad her dad smacked her as a child. Each to their own as long as it is lawful.

At our playgroup there is a no smacking rule. You can put your child in time out but not smack them.

I wonder if the mum is active on bh and took him to the toilet to smack because of the thread the other day
I wouldn't have said anything, nor do I think anyone should.

I wonder why the child thinks it's ok to hit his mum? Hitting a kid for hitting just makes no sense to me

Smacking is not a form of discipline that I choose (says the girl with the 1 year old DS who hasn't reached the "naughty" stage yet) but the mother took him aside, she didn't do it in front of everyone like it was some kind of stage show, it was effective and it's legal. I would've just carried on as normal if I was at the playgroup.

I would have been inwardly uncomfortable because I don't agree with smacking. However I would never say anything to the mum because based on the Op, it sounds like it was within the law - regardless of whether I agree with that.

I would have asked if I could do anything before it got to the point she felt she needed to hit him.
After the hit I would have been very uncomfortable and lost a bit of respect for her.
