If you want your children to love and respect you when they are finally grown up then I recommend loving and respecting them while they still grow.
Big difference between beating a kid for stupid reasons and smacking them for doing something wrong like say fighting or bullying or hey what about beating up a teacher because legally the teacher can't fight back. a lack of appropriate discipline leads to a society where teachers are beaten by 14 year olds they can't touch and primary school kids stab each other in the playground, don't believe me, both of these incidents and more have occured in australia in the last few months
