Spanking

I believe there will come a time in the future when people will read history, learn that we had a practice of beating children systematically on their bare buttocks, and they will cringe in the horror of such a bizarrely cruel and ineffective parenting approach to misbehavior.

What say you?

Study: Spanking may lead to sexual problems later

Quote:
The analysis of four studies by Murray Straus, co-director of the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire-Durham, suggests that children whose parents spanked, slapped, hit or threw objects at them may have a greater chance of physically or verbally coercing a sexual partner, engaging in risky sexual behavior or engaging in masochistic sex, including sexual arousal by spanking.

It's the duct tape of parenting. Ugly but quick and effective enough in the short term to make it popular - but the problem will still have to be addresses for real at some point.

maybe it's not the parental spanking but the being studied by Murray Straus that leads to sexual deviance?

OK. So how many of us here were brought up by parents who spanked us? I was and I dont fall into the 'physically or verbally coercing a sexual partner, engaging in risky sexual behavior or engaging in masochistic sex, including sexual arousal by spanking' category.

I was spanked by my parents.

My children have never been spanked.

I don't have a problem with spanking kids, with the hand in a reasonable manner and not in anger, for egregious offenses.

I DO have a problem with hitting kids with belts, wire coat hangers, and hairbrushes--all of which were used on me.

My mom used a metal slotted spatula on my bare behind a couple of times. Once was after she found out I took all the cash out of her wallet and spent it at the dime store.
