I guess one way to try out your question is to try smacking someone elses kid with a belt, either when you are looking after them or a kid you don't
know in the street.
I think we all know what the answer will be.
It is strange how the law works with this subject, if you hit a total stranger it's assault, yet if you hit your most precious loved one it's
classed as a learning tool.
I have two daughters approaching thier teens, so characters are tested daily in this house lol....but there are many ways i have learnt to keep a
situation calm and not have to get as far as smacking them.
Communication is the key, and 99% of the time it takes two to make an arguement. If you don't react, and can keep a calm demeaner, you can usualy
talk over the issue without having to lose your rag with them.
It's not easy, but it does work.
It's no different that dealing with some ATS members, if you react and match thier levels of aggressiveness and ignorance, you can end up wanting to
punch the crap out of the screen lol...but if you just smile and walk away...no need for the cyber belt!
