Spanking Is Not An Option

Browsing TIME Magazine’s April 12, 2010 issue, I chanced upon an article written by Alice Park on the subject—Study: Spanking Kids Leads to More Aggressive Behavior.

Ms. Park reports that a new study has been made that spanking a child doesn’t have any “long-term effectiveness on a child’s behavior”.

Let me quote from the article.

“The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not endorse spanking for any reason, citing its lack of long-term effectiveness as a behavior-changing tactic. Instead, the AAP supports strategies such as time-outs when children misbehave, which focus on getting kids to reflect on their behavior and the consequences of their actions.”
