Of course it is. Smacking a child's bottom is ok but punching them in the face isn't. What's the different? There's this notion that spanking is something other than violent, no it isn't.

The purpose of punching is to hurt and the purpose of smacking is discipline.

@brentan What utter crap. The purpose of smacking is to inflict pain to get someone to do what you want.

Sounds really good, I love you so much I'm going to hurt you. Utter Shit!

@ipdg77 It's to get what the child needs. And stop being so darn nasty and self-righteous!

@brentan Well I'm sorry but when someone casually justifies hurting a child then I'll get nasty. Hitting someone without their consent is assault, pure and simple. And just for you I'll put whipped cream on top with a cherry and a pretty please.

You are not giving a child what it needs, you are condoning violence.

And if defending a child's right's against abuse is self righteous then I'm happy to be self righteous and will continue to be so until people stop this abuse.

@ipdg77 You would do better with your opinions if you offered them in a better spirit. Enjoy yourself!

@brentan How can trying to stop abuse be presented in what you perceive to be the right spirit. This isn't a nice little chat about pizza toppings it's about child abuse.

And I'm really not going to be lectured by you on how to present an argument.

@Hebert54 Me or the other bloke?

@Hebert54 Thx Herbert 🙂


I raised my four boys single handed so I didn't want to role model anything that was going to come back and slap me in the face so to speak.


I have a strong belief that violence begets violence. I discipline with the things they cherish the most, WiFi and thier phones.


Proverbs 13:24 - Those who spare the rod hate their children, but those who love them are diligent to discipline them.

What's with the biblical quote?


"video unavailable" ?

...but of course it is.


Wrong, no.

Illegal, yes.


Yeah, don't know if it was right or wrong, but no physical punishment for my kid ever. I never thought that assaulting a kid would somehow translate to a better person. Obedience is overrated.

Yes it is
