I smacked my just turned 3 year old son in the face....

This morning, he was pinching my other son's face hard for the millionth time and I kept telling them both to be good...and nice to each other and I just lost it, I didn't want him hurting his 4 year old brother anymore and I just let go.  Of course, I feel guilty but I'm really hoping he doesn't pinch, punch and bite anymore. He's vicious, even to me. 

Has anyone ever slapped their child's face, for any reason?  I'm not going to do it again...hoping he understands that being so violent actually hurts.

I never have. I feel bad for your three year old. You are about to be bashed to hell and back.

I have a 4 and 6 year old and I feel like a referee most of the time.

I won't do that.  Not getting preachy here, but I limit my smacking to the butt area, if that. I understand that at age 3 kids can drive you insane.  You are OK.

I never slapped my child's face but I did pop his mouth once because of his constant biting. Not enough to hurt but enough to shock him and he hasn't bitten anyone since then.

 I've smacked their mouths for extreme backtalk. Not really hard, just enough to let them know they went too far. Have not had to do that too often.

Yes, he was pinching his brother's face and he's all scratched up and bruised from before...and I just lost it and full out slapped, I didn't hold back, it was crazy..but, I really didn't want him hurting him. I usually don't spank at all. I shocked myself. Of course, I gave him hugs and kisses and told him I was sorry and mommy doesn't want to hit or yell...but, he has to stop the aggressive behavior.  Thanks, momma. I felt sick doing that but my 4 year old doesn't defend himself, he lets the 3 yr old do that all the time...

"Don't hurt your sibling!" -slaps face-

Yeah, that's teaching him not hurt some one. :/
