Trigger Warning: child abuse
It would depend of the “hit.” I don’t support spanking children, but if I had been spanked, I would have taken it until I was old enough to verbalize my feelings about it. If it was anything worse or different from that (a slap to the face, during a fight, aggressive, etc.) I would have told someone, like a trusted teacher. Child abuse, no matter how “minor,” is a big deal and something that should be handled with care, as quickly as possible.
If you need to talk, I’m here. If you’d like to talk privately, let me know, though I can’t do that if you’re on Anon.
