If my husband smacked me because I was out of line, would you side with him? No? Then why would it be okay for him, or ANYONE, to smack my son? It wouldn’t be. I don’t want ANYONE physically harming or hurting my son, or using fear to try to control him. That includes me, or my husband, or anyone else. If someone were to hit my child, I would hit them, and asked how THEY liked it. Even if that person were family. Thank goodness I have a husband who agrees with me on this. We will have a hit-free home. As my parents always said “We do NOT hit people in this house!” And we will be saying the same!
