Tough Love: Look at my Face! (Part 2)

Chatting with husband at lunch (still recovering ever so slowly from pneumonia) it transpired that our son had been smacked not once -- as I thought -- but twice.

Husband recounted how he had to smack son when he was much younger after doing exactly what he had been warned not to do.

It's like, "You do that one more time and you will be smacked."

Son did it one more time and immediately -- smacking is only effective if it's immediate -- and was smacked on the back of his hand.

"I had to do it only once. Never had to do it again," he said.

And of course there is this other thing about "always carry out your threat". It must have been something quite serious to warrant a smack.
