is it always wicked?
Smacking anyone, children or adults, is crap. Nuff said.
i meant wicked as in cool. this has turned into a serious discussion. Damn!
It's a tough one. At the risk of sounding like an old man, it didn't do me any harm to get a slight tap. That doesn't mean a full-on slap.
I think some verbal abuse can be far worse. I once saw a kid lagging behind her mother on the street one day. The mother whipped round on her and screamed: 'Courtney, get here BEFORE I RIP YOUR FUCKING LUNGS OUT!'
The kid was about three. Words failed me.
verb is WAY worse than physical!
