A light smack round the head. But not really a real smack at all, just a 'really light ''cuff' if you know what I mean. He would usually laugh when I did it.

Punishment was being sent to his room & no television, that kind of thing.

Using the term smacking helps normalise a violent act and make it seem acceptable. Which is the point I have tried to explain already without success it would appear. :emb: An act of violence is an act of violence the level of degree does nothing to change that fact.

What's the :emb: for Frog? Were you being light heartedly self deprecating, feeling that you haven't quite got the intellect or a firm enough grasp of the English language to be able to properly explain it all to me? Or were you embarrassed (in a forum emoticon way) on my behalf because I'm so stupid I don't get it? An extremely mild attempt at humiliation perhaps :O :nono: :D

Anyway, whatever :chuckle:

The :emb: means whatever it means to you. Your personal interpretation is the one that matters as that says far more about you than me, and is far more valuable in respect to your personal development.

As already said you either get it or you don't and I think enough has been said with sources provided for those who wish to dig deeper and form their own opinions.
