Spanking can lead to relationship violence, study says
"One of the advantages of our study was to control for child abuse, which we defined as being hit with a belt or board, left with bruises that were noticeable or going to the doctor or hospital," said Temple, who specializes in dating, or relationship, violence. "Regardless of whether someone experienced child abuse or not, spanking alone was predictive of dating violence."

Spanking the gray matter out of our kids

The result was no surprise to Dr. Bob Sege, a spokesman for the American Academy of Pediatricians who specializes in the prevention of childhood violence. The academy strongly opposes striking a child for any reason, pointing to research that links corporal punishment to mental health disorders and aggression.

"This study confirms and extends previous research that says children who experience violence at home, even if it is couched as for their own good, end up using violence later in their lives," said Sege, who was not involved in the new research.

"For children, their parents are the most important people in the world, and they learn from them what are social norms and how people should behave toward each other," he added. "Corporal punishment confuses the boundaries between love and violence for children while they are learning how to treat others."

Boston University Associate Professor Emily Rothman, an expert in partner violence, agreed: "The experience of having someone direct aggression to you increases the likelihood that you'll fall back on aggression when in a flight or fight moment. Having been hit by the parent can elevate stress and reduces a child's coping skills, so they may lash out."

That is bullshit. There is a difference between child abuse and spanking. Spanking does not result in the same as beating your child to the point that they have to go to the hospital. My Mom spanked me then when I got older she started carrying a wooden spoon. It only took a couple of whacks with the spoon and I learned where the line was and didn't cross Mom anymore. I am non-violent. Never beat my kids etc... I think this refraining from disciplining our children has resulted in an uptick of violent behavior. Yes, children who are abused as children do have a higher rate of becoming abusers themselves but IMO that is a misleading headline.

The Bible says:
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

"Spanking" is certainly not beating with a belt or a board !!

Because they are a bunch of pedophiles............. that is why changing terms- making spanking child abuse will result in more children being removed from their parents home and placed into the system. Was it Oklahoma that had 4 children disappear last year? Scratchinghead

Hate to disagree with you all as having been spanked by my mother for simply years with anything she could find. Strapped at school was no help. My relationship in my 20s was angry to the point I hit her. She left and I was in pain inside for four years.I'm positive other males have crossed that line and are much much worse. The greatest years of learning has been past on from adult to child.

After I was spanked, after years latter examined this very topic. A child is their own person owned by nobody. Parents are the giver of life and supporter of the child that is where it stops. My mom had old fashioned thinking. A child should be seen, not heard. My personality has never changed no matter what.
Mom had a pet name for me. Mr.know it all. Well children talk all the time. It's a way of learning. We all talk and learn on the net and back and forth to one another over a tea. IMO if spanking became illegal? Oh what a better world it can be.. Anger can motivate sexual abuse to murder...
