Like it makes a difference to the one being hit if they're being hit out of anger or not....<quoted text>
I would ONLY agree to that if the child is getting beaten because of anger.
Your ignorance on the matter is gleaming.
"Why would you discipline a 6 month old?" -OCB
You seem to think it quite a feather in your cap that you state you never hit your kids out of anger.
That is correct- I would only "discipline" a 6 month old BABY if the baby was doing something that was life-threatening either to themselves or to others.
Interrupting dinner by crying is not life-threatening; of course, in YOUR case, it COULD be life-threatening to the BABY you are HITTING.
Your penchant for violence and physical aggression is much more far-reaching than I already knew it to be.
