I got smacked occasionally, and never in the heat of my parent's anger.

To use a cliché "It never did me any harm" and I laugh at the people who've tried to tell me otherwise. It didn't do my relationship with my parent's any harm at all, nor did it give me any ideas about it being ok to solve problems with violence.

Exactly, Katzy, I and my kids never suffered from a good smack, if appropriate.

Well, some children react differently to others. Plus, in certain circumstances, a quick slap is way more effective than anything else. When they reach out to touch a fireguard, for instance. (Showing my age, with that).

I got a few slaps and the last thing I could ever be accused of is being of a violent nature. Except, of course, that I'd love to deck Osborne...

I suppose that I was lucky, in that any slap I got was followed by a good explanation about why I got slapped.

Depends on the child, though. I'd've thought that was obvious.

If you think that the answer to an unruly child is a good spanking, think again, say researchers from the Universities of Texas and Michigan, who after extensive analysis found that this form of punishment only makes youngsters more likely to be defiant and aggressive.

Their study, which was published in the April edition of the Journal of Family Psychology, was based on five decades worth of research involving more than 160,000 children. They are calling it the most extensive scientific investigations into the spanking issue, and one of the few to look specifically at spanking rather than grouping it with other forms of physical discipline.
“Our analysis focuses on what most Americans would recognize as spanking and not on potentially abusive behaviors,” lead author Elizabeth Gershoff, an associate professor of human development and family sciences at the University of Texas, said in a statement Monday. “We found that spanking was associated with unintended detrimental outcomes and was not associated with more immediate or long-term compliance, which are parents' intended outcomes when they discipline their children.”
