    Yes I was, because that is how my parents were brought up and it is still perfectly acceptable to hit your children in the culture I come from. I promised myself I will NEVER do the same to my children though.

    Only smacked and the occasional clip on the ear for being rude/disrespectful. For the absolute worst offences (only like 3 times in my life), I'd get a belt lash on the ass. For me I can't complain, it didn't do me or my sibling any harm and I feel it made me a better person. That being said, I can see how people can overdo it and it becomes more abuse than discipline.

    It also depends on the general make-up of the person too. I don't think I ever got a smack I didn't truly deserve and I also never held on to my ill feelings about my punishment that long. Similar to a verbal insult, some brush it off quickly whilst others may hold onto that stuff much deeper and longer, causing more issues long-term.

    I'm indian.......'nuff said. No, in actuality, I usually get lightly slapped on the leg or arm, NEVER on my face. Also, usually, it's because of my own arrogance :-/

    My step mother (alcoholic) used to slap me right up until I moved out (17) Was also pinned against walls, she'd put her face right against mine and snarl at me. Belongings broken, thrown out of the window. Was an awful experience.

    Luckily I have nothing to do with her now, although I don't know why my dad ever did go back to her.
