      Great, more snowflakes will be raised in Scotland

      I don't agree with beating your children black and blue but smacking when they are out of line should not be an offence
      So not being hit by your parent when growing up makes you a snowflake?

      Are you an utter spasttic?

      It's ironic that the pro hitting posters are the ones most likely to never face this dilemma.

      I was hit for a brief period as a child when acting out and all it did was make me want to hit back. Parents soon seen sense.

      Have never agreed with this, so a good move by Scotland. There's no circumstance I could imagine where I would need to hit my kid.

      Ah, so the lack of physical abuse of a child has a direct correlation to gender identity issues? ...present your evidence professor :facepalm:

      What's better: A child who no longer screams because they understand it's disturbing to others (and perhaps futile), or a child who no longer screams because they are scared of their parent's palm?
      That's not the outcome that comes out of smacking. It teaches the child that the reason they got the smack is because they did something wrong, therefore they fear doing something wrong.

      Some of my trainees keep doing the wrong thing despite being told otherwise, maybe I should give them a short sharp thwack to help them remember :rolleyes:






      being able to give your boss a slap does seem appealing :rofl:

      How’s this gonna be enforced? Video cameras in every room in the entire country?
      Do you know how law works?? And omg this actually got reps?

      If there is no law against smacking kids then a smacked child can't report it....


      How did you miss that?

      Okay, so let's say you have a son, and you hit him from time to time when he does something you think warrants punishment. He might know that the reason he was hit was because it had done 'something wrong'.. but he's also learned that it's acceptable to deal with people doing 'something wrong' by hitting them.

      Let's say he then grows up, and one of his parents does something he perceives as 'wrong'. Is it okay for him to hit that parent?

      We're talking about kids here. What of the claim they make is false? Do you really want some poor mother fined or arrested just because she slapped a child that was behaving poorly? Living in constant fear of being reported to the police by your kids.

      No, he wouldn't. Why does every "anti smacking" argument stem from the idea that it'll ingrain this idea that they'll perceive the whole thing irrationally?

      They're children not apes or animals, they understand that it's a parent-child thing.

      Actually, there's quite a lot of documented evidence regarding behaviours children learn from their parents/other influential adults.

      Besides which, you've not explained why it's acceptable as a parent-child thing but not as a child-parent thing.

      Difference is that smacking is not any old behaviour, it's a form of discipline. It's not spontaneous, it's used in specific situations.

      Again, children aren't stupid animals. There's really nothing I can say, children understand the authority of parents and who they are in relation to them.

      Using your logic, we can conclude all sorts of things and it'd make raising a child impossible if they were such stupid and impressionable creatures.

      I disagree with it, parents should be able to discipline their children using reasonable physical force such as slapping. It's a time-tested traditional way of enforcing control over the child.

      Whatever I'm not discussing opinion. I'm discussing your lack of awareness about how law in general works. No one will obviously be filmed in their homes it's simply about being reported omg. If something is legal you can't report it??? This is about the general concept of law that I have to explain and its unfortunate that I didn't catch your post on page 1 sooner.

      Anyway I don't agree with child abuse. Why is this an argument. How can you look yourself in the mirror after hurting a child? Do you not know how to raise your voice or explain and be stern?? Or ignore a bratty child? You continue disgusting ancient "culture" arbitrarily when it clearly doesn't even work?? Humanity has issues.
