So you're an advocate of assaulting children?

Haha, Hilarious. In the days kids did get a slap you certainly had far fewer reprobates running around the streets causing mayhem and having no respect for people or property.

That's the thing, really - adults like to hide behind less emotive words like "smacking", but really, it's assault. Adults would usually be quick to turn to the law for restitution if another adult "smacked" them, and they'd refer to it as assault too.

One of the reasons why I don't agree with those who would like to see the reintroduction of corporal punishment in schools is that the clear evidence is that it didn't work. Or rather, it might have worked to deter the kids who were basically good, but it didn't offer the slightest deterrent to the hard cases and persistent troublemakers, i.e. the ones who most needed deterring, because the punishment records from schools all over the country show the same names over and over and over again.
Huge difference between giving a kid who's being a little shit a smack bum and corporal punishment in schools.

Nothing like spending a Saturday night giving some kid or other a good shoeing, if that's considered assault now the world has gone mad.

Not against giving them a slap but the old days were not golden days of behaviour, there were just as many miscreants then as there are knocking about now.

I got punched by the Lincoln prop forward Mr 'Bob' Kenyon at school, Mr Speed used to throw tennis balls at your head and Mrs Booth was a complete schizophrenic. That was 3 lessons you never ****ed about in. They were all 1st class teachers as was proven by the fact of the marks their students achieved and the fact we all behaved. They would all sadly be out of work in this age of mollycoddling little shits.

Never had any of that at school.

We were all too scared of some teachers to **** about, Dyer in History was a phenomenal teacher - not just because he made a kid cry by staring at him but his teaching ability was seriously mega.

I'd have been kicking and screaming like a right **** if a teacher had hit me. Just like I was when my old dear tried to lump me when I was about 15 and sort of, accidentally ruined her holiday nearly.

The question is loaded as you knew when you wrote it... It's not something that has or ever will happen frequently but I do not have an issue with smacking either of my children if I felt it was warranted.

How do you discipline your kids?

How far do they have to push it before you think it's smack bum time.

I think KC mentioned the bare-bum-in-public moment. I had that once and it was killer embarrassing(even as a young kid) but I was good as gold.

Mum used to lean a wooden spoon against my door when I was in the young phase of getting up and going to get in her bed. She never explained what she'd do, just that I was to sleep in my bed and that was there to remind me.

Never left my bed after that and to be honest, at 17, there is no need to sleep in Mums bed anymore.
