    Both my parents did it.

    It was the equivalent of capital punishment to our home's parenting system. If I ****** up big time, I knew I had a couple of ***** slaps a' comin' my way. My mom's slaps were just irritating, they weren't physically painful, her hands are too small. But my dad's? Boy I dreaded...

    Slapped For Every Curse Word

    Hi I'm Cortney! Just thought I'd share my experience here: I would stay over at my aunt's place for at least a week sometime in the year, usually during the summer, when my mom is out on business. She's a very traditional, strict woman with no children of her own, so she tends...

    I was slapped in the face as a child and ouch, it hurts.I would never slap a child period and on the face, forget about it.  The head is really delicate.  If you have to slap your kid and I don't mean slap her/him in a bad way but in an educational way, a little tap on the bun...

    I was slapped in the face by my mom once.

    I was surprised. She had told me to stop talking and whining about my sister and I would not so said I will give you something to cry about. I did cry. The slap was hard and you can see the redness on my face and feel the sting of the slap

    My dad never hit me as a child,

    my mum did many times, broke my things, threw my things in the bin, tried to put fairy liquid in my mouth (when I called her an alcoholic). I don't agree with laying your hands on a child, unless it's one of those rare cases where they endanger themselves, and I feel as a parent...

    People Still Think It's Acceptable!

    Look up the word concussion and then the next time you slap your child's face, ask yourself how many times you think their little brain can go slamming against the inside of their skull before inflicting permanent brain damage. If you think you are always in control of how hard...

    Never

    I believe you should never slap anyone across the face or round the head,as it is dangerous and can cause many injuries,there are other areas more apt for slapping

    My mother does when she is angry.

    I do not like it but it is ok because I know she loves me and I deserve it then.
