Is it ok to discipline someone else's child?

 
What do you think? Is it ok or not? 
 
The Today show reported on a new NBC drama show airing on TV tonight causing quite a stir and has people talking about what is acceptable and what is not when it comes to disciplining someone else’s child.

shmezzie   Is it ok? It depends on your relationship to the child and their parents. Example - I spend a lot of time with certain friends and their children. I've been around them since birth. I do not like yelling

Sharirobyn   I believe a certain level of mild discipline towards someone else's child is acceptable if the parent isn't there.

  dadvocate   I watched a show last night called "The Slap". Interesting concept, similar to this debate question. I would say that if discipline is non physical and the parent isnt around, then absolutely.

  Rune   I somewhat agree. From watching the "example" I would say that kid needed a smack! However, I dont agree that it should have been in the face. If parents dont take charge of their own child

  Dragonz   As much as one maybe would like to disciple someone else’s unruly, disrespectful and annoying child, it is NOT ok -- unless the child is in imminent danger, the child IS a danger to someone else—and that
