There are some exceptions.

For example, sales of luxury cosmetics actually increase during a recession. The reason? People going through hard times need a little something to make them feel...

Regardless of whether or not smacking is acceptable, I think everyone can agree that there are a lot of other equally effective ways of disciplining children.
