Does smacking your child help?
Just catching up on some news and I found this.
Now I grew up getting a ‘smack’ for being rude, fighting, dis-respectful, answering back and general behavior issues that most of us parents face day-to-day.
It never scarred me, it never made me abusive, in fact it taught me to have manners and respect.
If judging by how we see parenting skills being shown in alternate forms ie ‘Tommy Jordan’ saga.
Is it better now or is the old ‘tried and tested’ method better?
