    Question Violence as a Solution?

    Advertisements
    So a response in another thread got me thinking.

    Do you think that situations exist where hitting, smacking, punching etc. a person is the only option?

    Do you think it's a helpful resolution to conflict or does more harm than good?

    ETA: I'm not talking about self defense.

    Yes, there are circumstances where it's the only option.

    I've had to smack my sister upside the head a few times to get a point across.
    She also got popped across the mouth a few times growing up.

    Depends on what you're talking about really...

    In regards to, "Do you think it's a helpful resolution to conflict or does more harm than good?"... I'd say depending on the situation (abuse comes to mind), it's definitely doing more harm than good!

    Such as a case where someone's actions are going to harm themselves or others, and the only way to stop them is to do it physically.

    I remember when I was a teen and babysitting my baby brother and my sister. Well, David fell on his face and started bleeding profusely from his nose. Not a big deal, but my sis totally panicked. I slapped her across the face and yelled, "GET A GRIP!" She did.
    I got hitched! Southern_momma made me a wifey!

    I guess I mean more in the sense where you're in a heated argument and out of anger you hit someone and have no remorse for it, and think you were justified.

    I've definitely been mad enough to want to kick the everloving snot out of someone.

    IMO you are only justified for hitting during an argument if you are swung on, or possibly threatened with being swung on, first.
