What about nosy bodies at the store telling you how to (not) discipline your child?
I'm all for butting in if the parent slaps the child in the face. Woe be unto that person if I ever see it.
Speaking of "back-handing" -- I was never backhanded by my parents, but I was abused by an ex-boyfriend in my teens. He had a history of abuse by his alcoholic father and his pill popping mother. Big difference in abuse and discipline. His background was of his mother never disciplining him out of guilt and his dad beating him up and him picking his dad up from the bars at age 15. He had major issues needless to say. I put up with his abuse for over 2 years and survived to tell the tale.
