    Is there any research on adults who are smacked? I've found a lot of websites that look at the issue, but they seem more dedicated to archiving the smacking than drawing conclusions from it.

    I was smacked a number times as a kid when I did something wrong, and I've yet to be successful.

    I call bull on this research.

    Spanking is abuse? Damn. My Dad took the belt to my bare ass if I breathed wrong in church. Whatever. Anything can be deemed abusive anymore. I tell you this, I'd rather have parents thats smacked my bottom for doing things I was not supposed to do than parents that don't give a fuck.

    I just feel there is a line between spanking and abuse; also, every child is different so I would not use the same form of discipline on every one. Spanking worked on me, but not my brother. Loss of privileges worked better for him.

    After my dad dislocated my thumb when I tried to block a smacking, I vowed that I would murder him if he ever laid another hand on me. I was about 7 or 8 at the time, but the vow stands.

    Anyway, I call bullshit on this too. I'm not successful. However, it doesn't say that everyone who was smacked becomes successful, so whatever.

    The more conservative behavior of parents who hit their children (for punishment, not abuse) is what makes these kids more successful. Parents with conservative values will push and encourage their children into success in the traditional aspect (aka $$$).

    I was hit as punishment by my parents. I'm going to university and trying to be successful. My brother was hit. He plays WoW and doesn't go to university :lol

    Larry, Moe & Curly were very successful back in the 40s. Besides smacking, parents should use a few eye pokes as well.
