WRONG! I am old enough to remember mothers beating their children on streets, shopping malls etc. I was maybe 10 and asked my mom, why doesnt someone stop them?

treat kids like that today, and your kids will be taken from you, thats good because you will be in prison for child abuse..
smoking around kids need to be called what it is CHILD ABUSE!
And why do you believe you have the right to say what's right for SOMEONE ELSE'S child? Smacking doesn't harm, it instils DISCIPLINE, something nobody has any more.

And the cumulative effect of lots of other things is even more much worse.
Anyway, get things into perspective, it's a smack we're talking about, something which hurts slightly for a few seconds and leaves no bruise. You must be getting confused with punches to the face.
Sure it does. If I got smacked yesterday for being a smart ass to my
mother, it has the effect today to make me not do it again. I was a
A well timed and well placed whack on the ass can prevent ever having to
do it again if the kid is a smart learner. OTOH, beating is never
