I wouldn’t want to hit my kid. There are other effective ways of punishment to teach kids a lesson. I would only ever slap their bums if they harmed someone else to give them a taste of their own medicine
if your dad beat you, he was a piece of shit and you have my condolences
getting an ass whooping from your dad doesn't make you a man (i'm not talking about childhood spankings as last resorts) ~ men who beat their kids are not men, and it's no surprise the kids grow up to do the same
Let's say your boss at work starts treating you like that.
You come in 1 minute late, he twists your ear.
You make a spelling mistake in an email, he comes to your cubicle and whacks you on the fingers with your keyboard.
