I know that upholding idealism can be hard in the face of practical reality, but I'm hoping I won't smack my kids when/if I have them.

Still, I'd say the very popular idea that kids will get unruly and impossible without corporal punishment is just a myth. Such punishment is just a tool in a parent's toolbag. Some parents use other tools.

edit :

Corporal punishment also runs in families. Smacking passes on the tool. Maybe somewhere down the family line, it will cause harm even if your own punishment didn't.

Some kids deserved to be kicked. So kick them.

I don't think there's a cut and dry answer. I think it should be a last resort. It was for me. I really fucked up if I got a spanking.

Threads like this will always generate responses by people whose number 1 priority is to try and provoke rather than post an actual argument. Just ignore them.

I think by and large physical punishment is unacceptable. To me it seems like it's teaching kids that might makes right and that violence is a good way to resolve a conflict.

Not a word from the parents? Is their silence louder than words..?
