Couldn't disagree with you more. Parents should stop hitting their kids and start parenting. I have two kids myself, one grown up, one young and I've never hit either of them. Never needed to. It might take more effort on my part to make them realise that what they did was wrong - but I think making them understand is much more effective than making them fear me.

Smacking = lazy parenting.

I'm completely nonplussed by this decision from teh WAG. I saw the headline yesterday and thought 'what's to debate? It's wrong - end of'. Seems the WAG can still surprise me.
