I'm calling BS on this study. I'm willing to bet that the gaggle of little heathens that are running around these days that go without punishment when they act up, turn out to be truly BIG deviants, sexually. Hell, they're not afraid of their parents or getting in trouble because they know they won't get into trouble or they'll scream abuse. Who do you think is going to be more messed up in the long run, we who were punished, or the ones that think they can get away with anything?

Get real and quit funding stupid studies like this.

All these problematic adults were also kissed by their parents and made to eat carrots. This study strikes me as pretty silly especially considering the last line of the article that basically says it's not any physical punishment but how the individual child processes the information. In other words, it's the kid.

I think this is rediculous. It is stated clearly in the Bible, spare the rod spoil the child. Abuse may lead to sexual problems, and it would make sense, but simply spanking your children to correct them I seriously doubt is going to lead to sexual problems. I don't think God would put that in the Bible if that was the case! People just come up with new reasons daily not to spank your children. People listened and then everyone wonders why childrens are so rebellious. They don't listen to their parents, their teachers, any authority, and its because they don't care. They are not scared. PEOPLE NEED TO SPANK AND DISCIPLINE THEIR CHILDREN!

I'm calling "shenanigans" on this. I was spanked as a kid and I have no (I think) sexual problems (and no, a guy wearing lace panties does not have a sexual problem).:P

I have a 7 and 11 year old that I WISH I could spank...but I don't mostly out of fear that they will tell someone, anyone who could report that I abused them. And...I was spanked as a child a few times and I have GREAT sex (the heterosexual kind)! We need to all rethink what kind of kids we are raising this generation to be...they are OUT OF CONTROL!

I'd like you to state the book, chapter and line that says "spare the rod and spoil the child". Also the "rod" referred to a shepherds rod...I've never seen any shepherds beat their sheep with a rod...they lead and gently guide them in the way they should go and when they fall into a crevice they use the hook to save them. Come on Christians...

read the scripture and study it IN CONTEXT!

I can tell you that my moms spanked the hell outta me, and even sometimes rapped me on the lip a few times for using profanity, and I tell you right now I've had a boner hard enough to knock an oak door down for this lady for the last several days.

Sounds like a government study to justify taking control and when it backfires they make the parent responsable. I'm calling BS on this as well

Here is some Text that should answer your request.

"I wish that all fathers of households stand forth and practice their role. They will use the rod and not permit their children to go astray. Firmness is needed in your world that is filled with laxity, permissiveness, and degradation.
"Your children have been misled by many who shall answer to the Father. As teachers they have failed in their role. Therefore, as parents you must succeed in yours." - St. Joseph, March 18, 1973

As the Bible tells us: "He who spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him betimes" (Proverbs 13:24) and "Withhold not correction from a child: for if thou strike him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell." (Proverbs 23:13-14)

"What we have is failure to communicate" Famous line in a movie, but spanking is not necessarily the punishment for wrongdoing, but it is very effective as "May I have your attention please?"

For "Beware"
While "spare the rod and spoil the child" is not from the Bible, the sense of it certainly is. Proverbs 13:24 states, "He who spares his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him diligently." Proverbs 29:15 also tells us, "The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child who gets his own way brings shame to his mother."
