I was walking the the super market the other day and i saw a mother with her kids. They were acting bad and where not listing to the mother thought she tried to do her best to make them stop. It was all quite amusing that she couldn't control her own kids.

Now my parent where raised old school and raised me in a similar way so when i was younger if i acted up i would usually get slapped in the face and would never do it. I know there have been several studies that blatantly say that it is wrong to hit your kids and you should be shot for doing so.I don't think there is any harm in a swift slap to the back of the head if your child is very out of line.

So what do you think?

I agree, I was raised similar to how you described; I mean after all, it's not a like a spanking or a slap is gonna injure or kill your kid.

Frankly, any Freudian who tells you that you will should never have to spank your kids is obviously a Freudian who doesn't have any children.

My father just yanked my hair when I was acting like an ass.

Hitting a kid shows the parent can't solve a simple problem and cannot be patient. The parent got beat by a person who is less than half their size with less than half the mental capacity. Now if little Jonny or Suizie manages to make their way into the headcrab tank you have if your house and get one the buggers on his/her head then by all means hit them to remove the headcrab. The last thing we need is zombified kids with headcrabs on their heads.

On ordinary problems? No, it isn't going to help.

But if, say, I caught my kid stealing. Yes, I'd slap him. Or if I had a whacked out kid like that skinny little fucker from Smokin' Aces, I'd whack the retard out of him. Or at least make a concerted effort to do so.

My dad spanked me, but only very rarely and my mother was rather good about being able to correct me with a word. Both worked in their own ways and I don't think I came out any worse because of it. However, I think getting spanked and getting smacked in the face are very different things and I also think spanking should only be reserved for when reason fails.

Which also means that they are half as capable of reasoning and understanding. Go ahead and keep trying logic and verbal prowess to convince your kid why squirming like a worm on a supermarket floor is not the most reasonable form of communication.

I mean it, keep trying, or just be patient and wait it out I guess. Either way I'll enjoy the show.

The matter of the fact is that a child, especially a raging child, has the mental capacity of a puppy. Sometimes you just have to speak their language, and if threats and intimidation don't work, there are few options left.

I just bark at my kids...very rarely do I need to threaten them with a wooden spoon to their derriere, but when they were very little they did get spankings if they did something really bad, nothing along the lines of "hitting" though.

Maybe the thread title should be rephrased. Unless you are trailer trash, ghetto rate or follow some twisted imam code of conduct, most parents don't hit their kids. Difference between disciplining and hitting a child.

Yeah, I don't think anyone here would agree that punching a child is okay.
