Does spanking work? What does it teach?

One parent contends "If it's good enough for my dad, it's good enough for me." Another ardently opposes spanking, believing "If we don't spank dogs to train them, why do we spank our children?"

A child development specialist explores the psychology of spanking and suggests other discipline strategies such as redirection, natural and logical outcomes, demonstrations, and time out. 


  • Some surprising reasons why parents spank
  • What children learn from spanking
  • How even the "time out" method can backfire
  • How spanking is like an addictive drug
  • The relation of spanking to anger
