It is so typical for children who were abused physically (and yes smacking is physical abuse and emotional abuse too because it is so humilating)) to justify their parents behavior as they grow up. And as they think it didn`t hurt them they think they have the right to do the same to their own children and so the vicious circle continues and another generation gets involved. I think its particularly disgusting when those people become teachers.
