Maybe because you agreed with me that a swat on the butt never hurt anyone. (Besides their feelings)
What have you done to your children johnny? How did you punish them exactly and what was it for? Are they now smacking their own children as a result of what you did? Have you ever been so angry that you actually caused physical pain to the people you love the most, to the ones who are supposed to trust you 100%? Did you ever use the belt by any chance......??
If i saw fear in my childs eyes as a direct result of what i was going to do / or did it would haunt me for the rest of my life. and I'm sure it would leave emotional scars on them too. Parents who use physical punishment as a form of discipline ought to be smacked themselves. I'll gladly do it.
how would you like it if your boss was able to hit you every time he thinks you did something wrong? Or your kids when they think you did the wrong thing? Cool right?
BOOM there you go.
We teach our children through all walks of life, to show them the way, i really can't think of anything worse than beating them....as a life lesson, Violence teaches violence and i guarantee that those who advocate smacking were themselves smacked as children....every single time.
my little girl was told last week at school that she couldn't go to the toilet and that she shouldn't be a baby, she has a bladder infection and came home with wet knickers, would it be OK to smack a child for asking to use the toilet repeatedly? If a teacher lays a fcuking hand on my little girl they'll feel my hand.
Smacking advocates are from the stone ages.
How do people here feel about their children coming home from school and saying that they were smacked in front of the entire class? Who says the teachers were right, who arbiters that, its the teachers right....So its OK with you johnny and Dominic to let a stranger hit your child? To publicly humiliate them?
