What do you do if your child smacks you in the face? A co worker son that's 7 smacked her while she was trying to put his coat on. All she did was say that is not acceptable your getting a timeout mister. She is a very loving devoted mother. I almost cried for her. He has no medical issues. I believe in timeouts and spanking. That deserved a spanking but it made me wonder if spanking cause violence or aggression what cause her son to hit her. My son has never done this but he has had his share of trouble making.

take away a favorite item until the lesson is learned...more punishment may also ensue during that time

At 7 he would be in his room for an hour and no video games for the rest of the day.
That being said - their is no one perfect punishment for all kids.
You have to hit where it hurts the most. The above punishment I suggested is what would hurt my child.

Hitting him back for hitting her isn't going to teach him anything. Time outs give them time to think about what they did and why they got into trouble for it.

i certainly dont teach 'no hitting' by hitting. 

if my child ever hit me in the face, depending on the age, it would be a very severe punishment. at this age, (10) i would ground her for a week. no bike, no TV, no computer, no friends. 

baby, it would be a very loud NO NO!! and i would refuse to play anymore for an extended period of time. 

toddler-5, it would be a very loud NO! and a time out with double normal time. 

hitting is NEVER OK. 

why would i HIT, to prove that?

yeah, because hitting a kid teaches them not to hit.  Makes PERFECT sense.  SMH

Why cant the 7 yr old put his own coat on?

My 3&5 yr old know how to do this task themselves.

We have a pretty predictable schedule that we stick to. I do time outs but usually there's an activity in the afternoon that I can revoke if my dds do something really bad.
