I was hit as a child, this caused me to develop a mental disorder called "Respect For Others".
Let's be Clear, I Do NOT mean Beating a child. I mean hitting, a light Smack that does injur or bruise a child. What's your opinion?

It makes me cringe to see people hit their kids. I don't know, I just think there are better ways to parent, to me it teaches children that when you don't do something you're supposed to do, you get hit and to me it just violates boundaries. I think if you're too lazy to look into better ways to discipline your children, then maybe you shouldn't have any.1

Not every kid needs to be hit but some definitely do. Especially the children I see now a days. I've seen children yell at their parents and get off with just a scolding and I'm like wtf. Then in another 5 minutes they'll be at it again. I'm against child abuse but a whooping now and again can instill discipline into a child. Up until about 9-10 years old I was physically disciplined and even that was rare because by that age I knew better. So yeah hitting should be allowed as long as a parents knows how to use discretion.1
