Peter Andre has weighed in on the discussion about smacking children.
The singer-turned-television-star wrote about the issue in his latest column for new! magazine following calls to make smacking children illegal in the UK.
He revealed that whilst he has never smacked his own kids, he was smacked as a child and feels that it didn’t have a negative impact.
“As a child, I got smacked when I did something wrong and it never did my brothers or I any harm,” he wrote.
“Of course no parent should physically harm their child, but I don’t see anything wrong with a smack on the hand or the bum to discipline them.
“That said, I’ve never ever smacked my kids.”
Peter and his wife Emily MacDonagh, who tied the knot last year, are currently expecting their second child together.
They have a daughter called Amelia. He also has two kids, 10-year-old Junior and 8-year-old Princess, from his marriage to Katie Price.
