After reading a conversation about "why do parents not want to smack their children?"
I want to know why parents would want to hit their children? I am pretty open minded but I just can't seem to grasp the concept of hurting my child just to try and get what I want? Just interested because I was never smacked as a child and I am so grateful to my mum, so I never been able to understand the whole "it never hurt me" excuse. What reason's have you heard before? And most importantly why have you decided not to smack your children?
