It's a controversial issue that divides parents... where do you stand?

It’s a controversial topic that divides households all over Australia: should you smack your children?

The notion of smacking your kids as punishment is one of the more polarising topics for parents.

Some believe it’s the only way: a tap on the bum and it’s over and done with. No muss no fuss.

For others, the hypocrisy is just too much to ignore.

What do you think, is it okay for parents to smack their children? Were you smacked as a child and would you ever do it to your kids?
