What about using violence to protect yourself from violence? Is it ok to hit someone who is trying to restrain you? Or kick someone who is trying to rape you? Or hurt someone who is actively trying to kill you?

There is a time and a place for violence. My post and the link to Stop Hurting Kids were specifically about taking care of children.

There is no place for violence in a child’s care, treatment, or education plan.

If you are violent towards a child in an emergency, it is upon you to figure out a new plan to prevent that from happening again.
