  • back handing only shows anger, not effective. I will give my kids a light swat on the bottom for shock value and to get their attention if NOTHING else works. (I.E. crying to the point of no return) but as soon as they stop for a second so they can hear me I'm on their level talking to them with hugs so we can figure out the issue.

  • Spanking or hitting a child in any way should be illegal. Why do people find it unacceptable for a man to hit his wife or gf, a person to hit an animal but it's ok to hit a defenseless, vulnerable, innocent child?

  • A parent should never ever discipline in anger

  • No, I mean if my 15 year old daughter call me the B word, I am gonna pop her in the face, for a younger child, yes it is wrong but teenagers out of control, noway!
