Because it is cruel to the child as if the parent is really angry with them they could smack them really hard and it would really hurt!! The child could be scarred by the incident forever. Ground kids or ban them from tv, xbox etc Smacking them however naughty they are is not acceptable.

There are studies that show spanking is psychologically harmful to children

Smacking a child causes temporary pain to a child when there are more then one way to deal with an issue the child may be having in a more subtle was that works. As someone who grew up never being smacked by my parents I can say this with no doubt. I grew up very well and down to earth. I listened well to my parents, I never had any issues with the other methods used. Also to some people smacking can be refered to as spanking which is illegal in some countries.

As someone who was "spanked" as a child, I am automatically partial to Pro's side. I doubt there is any good arguments Con will have
