I never asked if anyone would do that. I am just saying a smack in anger, CAN lead to other things. Ive had it happen to me and seen it happen.
Its great if there is anyone out there who smacked calmly and rationally, but I am just not sure why if you were calm and rational you would just talk through the problem instead.
But I am sure I am not the only one shaking in fear with all the memories that are coming up when people are saying its ok to hit their kids. I only see any form of hitting as abuse. Maybe if I had experienced just the odd smack, maybe it would be different.
Look I said I didn't want to argue, but I just can't agree that its OK.
If its OK why is it illegal in nz to smack your kids?

It doesn't matter, people will do what they do.
Obviously I have been affected by hitting/smacking/abuse whatever you want to call it. Fine if you say it didn't hurt you, that is great then. But lots of people have been affected by hitting.
But I still want to know if people do it in a calm and rational situation, and just a tap. Maybe this I could see as OK, but is the point to make them afraid of doing it again? Its the afraid thing that mkes me see it as not OK
