Browsing the DM during lunch I came across this article: Hundreds of fuming Corrie viewers complain about smacking scene as adopted daughter is seen being slapped on the legs | Mail Online I don't have a tv so I don't know how bad or good the scene was but quite frankly I'm surprised people were disgusted with it. A 10 year old kid poisons a fish tank killing all the fish and as a consequence received a few slaps on her legs. Having no kids I don't know what I'd do to her. Probably cane her to bits I guess. Considering I've been slapped for far less as a kid I thought the punishment seemed rather mild in this case. Surely judging by the pictures this isn't child abuse? Nice touch though. The school uniform that is.
