5. Sorry
Even an occasional "smack" is absurd. I don't "smack" my husband (even occasionally) nor do I "smack" my friends or co-workers when they disagree with me or they don't do as I ask. Why do people think it's ok to do it to smaller human beings when they wouldn't dream of doing it to another adult?

My husband was never spanked or "smacked" (I was), and he and his siblings are the kindest, least violent people you'd ever want to meet. I've never spanked or "smacked" my son, and all of his caregivers, and all of the mommies in our group, say he is the most beautifully behaved child they've ever seen. My 4-year-old simply does not hit other children; violence just doesn't seem to be a part of his makeup. I wonder why?

Hitting is not needed... EVER. Not even an occasional "smack." Let's get more creative as a species, shall we?
