TOPIC: Now a smacking witch-hunt.

Now a smacking witch-hunt. 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
It is not that I particularly approve of smacking. It is not part of my culture and I was fortunate to have children that didnt need it.

But I havent noticed that children are happier and better behaved since it was unofficially outlawed.
The exact opposite, in fact.

you bring up an important point Honey...my parents never used physical punishment on any of us and I once looked into both sides of the family and found neither of my parents were physically punished or their parent's families were.

## this aside from the fact I was so adorable and well behaved I never needed any sort of discipline.

Which makes me think that physical punishment is a a "learned" activity and one of those sadder things that are taught through the generations..that violence can be used to solve a problem.

### I was caned however repeatedly by a demented English master for being a "class clown" and he seemed to take a bizarre delight as he backed away with a flushed red face and then launched himself on hapless pupils with a cane so fierce our fingers stung for hours. It definitely turned him on as he caned at least 3 kids a day.
# wonder if there's a compo claim there?
