is that a threat?
and i hated it and will never ever do it to my kids.
whacked on crack.
What of it, slag?
me and my brothers were smacked when we were kids. We probably deserved it.
when I was really misbehaving, and not hard. I really don't think it's done me any harm.
but i tended to either hide or fight back. They didn't expect that i don't think.
No doubt I deserved it and whatever I did wrong I probably didn't do again.
By randomers, yeah, I've been in a scuffle or 2
I don't think it was very often though.
because my parents are the now the least strict people ever.
I suppose that's why the smacking was effective, it was only when I was REALLY bad.
I mean, I know my mum did smack me, I also know, from what she said, that I just said "You can't do that to me" each time so she stopped as I seemed so sure it wasn't right.
But like I don't remember.
That said when I've seen friends and relatives give their kids smacks for things I can't see what else they could have done: you can't reason with a child because their minds evolve only selfishly and without any real ability to reason until much later.
It's only when a child becomes older (i.e. school age I guess) when you are looking at more rational ability and it's a different case, I think. That's when you're teaching them that violence is a solution because they understand how problems work.
By both parents and strangers. And friends, and enemies.
I lead a violent life.
Punched? Yes, twice
by my parents, but only about 3 times and I remember each of them vividly. It worked.
I was smacked a lot.
my Mum hit me as recently as 2 months ago. On the head
by my parents
by a random
by a girl
It was a short sharp shock and happened to me probably about 3 times in my life. I don't think there's anything wrong with it being used like that.
did it on very very rare occasions, so then I knew I was really in the shit. My parents were definately of the psychological warfare style of parenting. I'd fess to avoid the guilt trip that would come. Or hide it, very, very well.
I play rugby so I've been hit a fair few times - had my nose broken quite severely once, but I deserved it so it was a fair cop.
I also got hit in the face a couple of months ago at Notting Hill Gate station - was standing up for this LU worker who was being verbaly assualted by some cunt, who then couldn't take my acerbic wit embarressing him in front of the whole platform.
but i was incredibly weird, demanding, intense, and a bit of a spazz as a child and would have really really really horribly intense tantrums, mainly because i found it very difficult to control my emotions over even tiny things. and i remember being smacked once by my mum when she just couldn't cope with me any more at about the age of seven. she just snapped. still upsets me/makes me feel guilty now.
and it's nothing i'm not particularly ashamed to admit.
and i don't have it, or at least, i've never been told i have it.
