Which does more harm, a smack on the arse, which may cause the kid to cry and sulk, or talking the parent away, which in turn will severely mess the
kid up. either in the way of
1, Complete role reversal where the child is in charge of the parent
2, Abandonment issues.
If the last resort of correction is a slap, then so be it. sometimes when all esle fails to get the message across it needs to be done.
It is not "violence" per se, but a method of demonstrating that certain actions in life will warrant harsh reactions by those bigger than you.
If you get in trouble with the police, they will not, give you a good talking to and put you in time out!. No they will stomp your guts out.
IMO it is a tried and tested way of preparing kids for the reality of life.
As in this case. The person has been spanked by the judge. As ironic as it is. Could this chastisement not be considered a harsh punishment? the same
as a smack on the arse!??
