Spanking And Corporal Punishment — Harmful To Children

Nothing creates more tension in a family law case in our office, than a case with children and a spanking adult. Or in some cultures, a “whooping.” Our judges hate it and typically at least one of the parents hate it. Then there is the parent who thinks a firm smack on the back side is appropriate. What is the right way to handle family disciplining their children? I rarely see people who are ambivalent about the subject; you are either a proponent of spanking or dead against it. I, for one, am in the camp of you shouldn’t do it. There is a lot of research on the subject of spanking, but I know my kids mirror my behavior. Good and bad. The first time you hear your five year old swear or say something bad that you recognize came out of your own mouth at some point, you know what I mean.

So what exactly is spanking or swatting the child teaching them?
