Children need boundaries
"When boundaries are crossed there are consequences!"
Readers respond to Ban the Smack! by Scott Dunlop.

Children need boundaries and they need to know when these boundaries are crossed there are consequences!

Yes people have taken the punishment to the extreme but a good hiding in love does a child no damage but good!

The discipline is also dependent on the child and time out can work! But at 2yrs old there is no understanding of that!
