Such crap, It worked for hundreds of thousands of years.Look at the damage done since the 70's when parents went soft. Kids are worthless little sharts, cant read, write, cant hold a job. Self entitled little whiners.

how is it then, that in all the countries were hitting your kids is not permitted, all the kids don't run out onto the road and die?
the kids weren't trained in road safety by hitting them and they survived. wow.
so , u think kids remember something better if you smack them. that's some parenting.
