Banned?! This afternoon!?! Damn!!

I wish someone had told me yesterday, would’ve got ten years worth out in an evening on mine if I’d known. :sob:

The reality is my four year old doesn’t need the law....if I ever laid a finger on her she’d bite and scratch the feck out of me....that after Mrs Bubbs has clobbered me a few times with a rolling pin. Scottish women are not to be messed with.

All kids go through stages I think of lashing out in frustration. We’ve had biting and scratching in the last couple of years. My four year old has just started school and the current fad is kicking out when she doesn’t get her way, to which I reply with a “don’t do that, only donkey’s kick”. She now repeats it to me before I have a chance to say it now but it seems to work as she’s stopped.

Kids know how to ‘press your buttons’ but ultimately they learn from you. If you show acts of violence, they too think that it’s okay to do so (IMO anyway).

Smacking children is OK if you're middle-class, in which case it's part of a loving intercourse between reluctant parent and wayward child. Working-class parents mostly do it because they enjoy it.

There is a world of difference between an out of control parent thumping their child in anger compared to parents making an example by occasionally rapping the child mildly on the back of the legs or bare bottom

It’s really just a normal thing in lots of places that kids accept, and dare I say parents do without really being ‘out of control’. My girlfriends from one of the less developed provinces of China, her and everyone she knew got smacked or spanked by their parents. Same for friends I have from Antigua, Chile and Nigeria.

Completely unacceptable obviously, but if we want to change this then we do need to face the reality that it’s not just a load of rogue psycho parents, it’s a culturally and socially accepted norm in many places.

Common sense should prevail. There’s no need to criminalise this.

I am saying that the odd smack on the backside may well be acceptable, whether it is a culturally and socially accepted practice or not, and certainly should not be automatically punishable in law

Agreed, as Chateau said there are existing laws to deal with assault

I think you need a whoosh.

Spanking should only be lawful among consenting adults
