This is a really cool blog post written in response to the show The Slap. As an adult survivor of child abuse who later on has found myself suffering from continual mental and physical illnesses as an adult and being repeatedly thwarteded from success in every area of life as well as being a repeat victim of abuse I can truly say that no, hitting children is not good nor is it ever necessary. It is almost certainly the best way to set up a child for failure in adulthood. The research has all shown the same thing. Hitting children has no positive effects and a slew of negative effects. Please follow the link and read the blog post.
