    Where do you draw the line? Is chasing your kid running away from you and forcibly carrying them and sitting them in a time out spot acceptable or isn't that another form of abuse? Think how terrified your kid is running away and being chased... OMG, the horror.

    Again, where do you draw the line... how about your kid wants to run out into traffic? Do you just say go ahead and let him do it?

    Anyone who hits a child, for any reason, ought to get one right back in the face from someone much bigger and stronger than they are. Damn cowards. Hitting children is inexcusable.
    But what if they ask for it?

    Touching a hot stove top isn't going to kill the boy. It will hurt a little, and by touching it he will learn the nature of it. In your situation he could very well be killed, so it's not situation where you should allow him to learn something.

    I never spanked my kids but a couple of times I was frustrated enough to say that I would and once my kid said go ahead. It actually made me laugh...

    No. It has nothing to do with what I think. Its a simple reality. You have to be a coward to hit a child as an adult. Simple common sense.

    Years ago the phone company had adverts to "reach out and touch someone" by long distance calling. One time they were acting up a little and I said if they didn't stop that I might redefine "reach out and touch"; the oldest said "how ya' gonna' do that?" He were wearing shorts. In a backhanded manner I flipped my fingers against his leg. He said "Oh!" For the next couple of months they each would move their chairs close to me during supper; after a few days I asked them why they were sitting so close. The youngest responded "If we mess up it'll be easier for you to "reach out and touch us". I've laughed about that for 25 years and so have they. I have more funny stories about kids and punishment ... one of them includes a bullwhip.

    It seems like the best corporal punishment today would be to take away their cell phones and computers. No need to raise a hand to a child now. Control their social media outlets instead of raising the hand to them.
