Smack on the hand is not a big deal

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Smack on the hand is not a big deal Smack on the hand is not a big deal

After reading the local Guardian this week, I had to smile to think a pre-school has shut down after a child having had a slap on her hand for pulling other children’s hair.

Is that so terrible? It’s a slap, not a beating.

Maybe if the parents were to agree they wouldn’t end up with teenagers and young men and women committing horrific crimes, as seen on the pages of the same paper.

This is all getting out of hand. All my three children got a slap when they were little at school and at home.

They are now grown up with children of their own,

who have never been in any trou-ble with the police. Need I say more?
