My brother and I both got smacked when we needed it and it did not do us
any permanent harm. My children were smacked occasionally ditto. The
youngest one didn't care if you smacked him or not so different tactics
were needed. My brother doesn't believe in corporal punishment and his
children grew up well. So either tactic seems to work as long as discipline
is given with love.
Our granddaughters also are disciplined and will get a smack if they keep
up with bad behaviour.
I too see children throwing tantrums and ruling the parents, see what you
get for being too lazy and not loving them enough to discipline children.
There are really nice looking women who spoil it all when they open their
mouth and speak,but it seems to be common language these days. That's the
old saying "don't judge a book by its cover"
