Current Spanking Research

A friend sent me this great article from a source that is not labeled as “Christian.”  It talks about research that has been done and is continuing to be done about the results of spanking.  The research is studying the positive results instead of only the negative.  It’s a pretty cool article and is encouraging.

People have many different  opinions of whether or not spanking should be used as a form of discipline.  One of the definitions for discipline as a verb on Merriam-Webster’s website is “to train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control.”  One of our focuses as parents is to help our children become disciplined and self-controlled.    Whatever your belief is about the implementation of spanking as discipline, check out this article and see what the latest research says.  You might be surprised.
