My dh just smacked SS (14) after he tripped him and took a swing at him. I had never seen him do this before, so was surprised. Dh is not violent, but said if "my son thinks he can be violent with me, I will put him in his place".
Ok not sure what to think, have you ever done this, either when your children were younger or older?
To me it justs seems pointless and backfires, but what are your thoughts?

If your kid is getting physically violent I wonder what that kid has seen to go there. I would be pissed if my husband hit our kids. Acting like a child to correct a child's behavior is counterproductive and what morons do. You 14 year old learned that your DH is as childish as he is and that violence in the home is acceptable.
