I was just reading another "smacking" post on WCOM, and there's always a bunch of people who say "spanking is bad' or "I don't smack" but there's nothing wrong with a "tap." Okay, there's nothing wrong with taking two fingers and tapping your kid on the leg...but what's it supposed to do? Is it that these people don't agree with spanking to cause pain, but know of no better strategy, so they "tap?" Or does the "tap" have some magical power to make children behave that I'm missing out on? Are you a tapper? Is it effective?
