My mom did it a couple of times when I was 3, I remember it. It didn't really hurt though, she just had me stand there and slapped me on the bottom. I think she didn't really want to hurt me, but wanted to let me know I was bad.
Nope. My eldest was so much smarter than I was that I could just imagine the remarks. After that it all seemed pretty futile.<br />
I don't think I've ever hit a living thing in my life. The cat, maybe, if I could catch her...... hmmm. She always does stuff and then runs off fast.
I don't want to but I have before
I've only done it a few times when my daughter was little, I did it out of frustration, and that's not good. My parents did it sometimes. and I was spanked all the time by teachers at school. One teacher did it everyday religiously, lined everyone up in the hall so everyone could see. that is soooo wrong!
