Spanking erodes developmental growth in children and decreases a child's IQ,

his analysis, conducted at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, offers new evidence that corporal punishment causes cognitive impairment and long-term developmental difficulties.

Debates around physical punishment typically revolve around the ethics of using violence to enforce discipline. This inquiry synthesized 20 years of published research on the topic and aims to "shift the ethical debate over corporal punishment into the medical sphere," says Joan Durant, a professor at University of Manitoba and one of the authors of the study.

but you see, if you spare the rod you spoil the child. If you don't spank they begin to grow and become smarter ... that's a sin. You must beat your child into religious submission. For the bible tells me so.

If a parent doesn't spank a child, that child will presume an inordinate concept that they are right no matter how incorrect they are.
This is how liberals are spawned.

Next thing you know that liberal upstart becomes increasingly problematic and instead of spanking them, now you need to shoot them.

Again that old proverbial axiom; Spare the rod and spoil the child, rings true.
A few smacks now saves lead later.

What a load of twaddle. You do not need to beat your child in order for them to know right from wrong. Your love, your example, and proper communication with your child is all you need, and if you resort to beating, then it is your parental skills that are lacking. If your child does something wrong, you can make them aware of that and punish them accordingly without resorting to beating them.
Based on what you have said, I assume that if your child told you a lie, then you would beat them. What if an adult told you what you knew to be a lie, would you beat them? No you would not, because that would be considered an assault, and could land you in court. Seems totally unreasonable to me that some people can beat their children with impunity, but the same level of physical abuse directed at an adult could land them in court. And why do people like you always want to shoot other people?

Everyone needs correction to some degree. But only after other methods have been tried and failed. Personally I believe that with each instance of the same problem, the stakes are added upon. First - gentle explanation of why it is wrong. Second - something taken away and a more firm talking to. Third - grounded to a room with/out added chores. And finally a good swat across the backside with grounding for a longer extension of time, and with amusements taken away (favorite toys, television, games, etc).

Excellent truths! The ultra left-wing liberals seem to believe they are smarter than God and His wisdom.

Spanking Makes Kids More Aggressive

Both social workers and educators know that the children with the most problems are most likely to be identified when they hit Kindergarten in September. All those little aggressive people who were at home being spanked instead of taught how to control themselves suddenly find themselves in classrooms where they have to cooperate. Is it any wonder that children who are subjected to corporal punishment at home are unable to cope at school as well as children who have been better treated. Suddenly diagnoses like ADHD and Conduct Disorder get put on kids who might have otherwise done just fine if their parents had spared the rod a bit more and taught their child proper self-discipline.

Translation: A few smacks now leads to lead flying over a difference in option.

That's why there are so many punks today with a belligerent attitude. They didn't get their rear ends kicked enough growing up and thought they were on a level with their parents.

The one thing that seems to slip the minds of many is the meaning of "spare the rod". The rod doesn't necessarily mean physical punishment. It can be in the way that a parent comes across altogether. My kids know I am serious when I speak. I can be very soft and loving, allowing them to feel comfortable with who they are. And when they do something wrong, depending on how serious, I become like a giant....FEE FYE FO FUM.

They take notice. I do not spare the rod of my will. I have and still use the belt to spank them...if its necessary. But I do things in such a way that they will try hard to avoid that. That's the whole point. To raise your kids with the ability to avoid trouble like the plague. How can they if they don't face it? A family without a "rod" is like a house full of "individuals" who are self absorbed and think life is a gift for them to do whatever the hell they want. I think GOD gave us a higher purpose than to find ways to get what we desire. Punishment is a way of humbling a child and keeping them down at the level we all should be. The world tends to put people on pedestals. And those people are usually the most rotten or screwed up. I know a lot of liberal minded people who let their children go out into the world getting into drugs, acting homosexual, etc etc.

The paddle. The belt. The rod. Whatever. It is meant to represent GOD. The ultimate guide in our life. Stay on His good side. Suffer on His bad. And that suffering is meant to run you back to His good side where you belong. Not to torture or destroy us. Use it wisely.

Now now DB. You know you like a good spanking. That is, when you aren't spanking yourself.
