Slapping is not only physically painful but also demeaning. Spanking only works until children reach a certain age when it doesn't hurt enough to make an impact on their behavior. The best method is early intervention in toddler years with redirection and time-outs so that when they are older they already listen.
I agree that sometimes we need to give physical punishment to our kids. However, I don’t think slapping our kids is the right physical punishment. When our kids make mistakes, we’d better give them advice or suggestions. When advice and suggestions do not work anymore, we can give them soft physical punishment like pinching their ears. So, slapping our kids is not necessary.
