“He who spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him betimes” (Proverbs 13:24) and “Withhold not correction from a child: for if thou strike him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell.” (Proverbs 23:13-14)
My parents didn’t beat, slap or physically discipline any of us and I have never hit any of mine. I’ve yet to see it really work in the long term.
So, what about you? Were you beat/slapped as a child? Do you, or would you, slap your own child? If so, why?
