comment Hitting your child as a disciplinary/educational measure - modern opinions
"whatever will be effective", "would suffice", "would work". It seems to me that these goals (if you could call them that) are so vague that this quote is practically useless. The only thing I could gain from this is that according to Rav Weinberg 'shivto' can be understood differently to the "classic" understanding.

comment Hitting your child as a disciplinary/educational measure - modern opinions
Very interesting. I would love to know what source R' Schwab was working off of with this idea, i.e. that we are supposed to cause some sort of negative feeling in someone to help them atone. Do we see such an idea elsewhere?

comment Are there any examples of Chazal pointing out a flaw in one of their contemporaries?
I think that if any of these statements are ascribing a personal flaw or failure/sin to the other person then yes, they would be an answer. (I suppose we would have to "learn up" those gemara's to see what was happening exactly.) Name calling, however, would not necessarily be an answer because they would use very strong language against someone who they disagreed with in order to dissuade students from following the other position (forgot where I saw this explanation).
