Today the Scotland will introduce a criminal offence for smacking children. I am against this, but its more difficult than first appears. The thing for me is its just not hit or not hit. You can hit with varying degrees of strength: a smack on the bottom for being naughty isnt in my view that serious, but if you allow that where do you draw the line between that and a serious kick up the pants which is well beyond acceptable ?
Simply banning any physical contact like they are doing is too extreme I think, but its not a simple topic. Any views ?
