Child Abuse or Good Parenting?

12 Apr

Oh boy, I am definitely asking for it with this one… did you know that I’m scared to write about controversial topics because I don’t want hate mail? I guess I am getting over that fear with this one.

I just read this article on spanking and I have to say… thank goodness a study like this has finally been published.
 

What do you think?

    Excuse me , but spanking gave me the strength, discipline, and courage to have the self esteem issues I have today. Made me the freak I am too! 😉

    I've seen tons of studies done, but not many get publicized. I'm incredibly ANTI spanking and absolutely will not do it. I have several reasons, one being all the studies I've read and one being personal experience. One of my most vivid childhood memories is being spanked and I don't want to scar my children that way (and I do have a great family that's very close, but this is one of the many things my parents did that I disagree with).

    I was never spanked, but my grandma became a psychologist after her kids were grown up and greatly regretting ever spanking her own kids. I was always taught to handle things in a nonviolent way and I hope to pass that on to my kids. By the way, I am honored that you commented, Kelli!
