Discipline means "to teach and train".

Smacking can cause lasting psychological damage.

It is widely recognised that smacking undermines children’s confidence, weakens their emotional relationships and encourages the use of violence to resolve disputes with siblings and classmates.

The experience of childhood smacking has even been linked with an increased risk of alcoholism, depression, masochistic fantasy and suicidal ideation in adult life.

Smacking means hitting a child. To me, it doesn’t matter whether it’s once a month or twice a day – it’s still unacceptable.

When you spank your child they will also do it to their own child when they have their own family soon.

thats why i agree that it ia againts the law....

There was a study done with children from infancy to adulthood and what they found was kids who were "spanked" or had some sort of structure in life to learn and respect people grew up to lead a successful life, while the children who had none grew up to find them selves in prison or dead or just not going anywhere. It is not wrong to spank a child as long is it is done proper. You are the type of people who warn there children 50 times till the kid learns you have no control and wont do anything to them because there actions have no consequence's and then you wonder why the children act out all the time.

i was spanked not abused and my childhood was awesome. I only got spankings when i really did something wrong and it was only on the butt. My parents did not do it 24/7 a lot of the times i was being grounded. Now if i was being hit all over or just plain out being abused i would understand your statement but a normal spanking does not include abuse and im sorry your parents did it wrong.

I did spank my children, not often though. I used time outs, behavioral charts, took things away, reward systems etc. but sometimes a little swat on the behind gets the message across. I never beat my kids, and when I did give them a swat, they knew I loved them because I talked to them first as to why they were going to get the swat. BOth of my children turned out great and are respectful to my wife and I and to others. Make good grades at school, work hard and are a pleasure to be around. SOme parents just pick up the belt and start swinging, but fail to talk to them about why they are getting the swats etc. And NEVER swat your kid when you as a parent are angry. Take time to cool down first, then talk to them,then swat them. I personally think that when the parents are angry that is when things can get out of hand.
