About this deal

I'm not a parent but I have had experiences that suggest that parents take it an offense to be told by total strangers how to raise their kids.

But from a child’s perspective, there’s no difference between being spanked and hitting a friend for taking away a toy. He is a psychologist, a licensed clinical social worker, and the author of 7 Traits of Effective Parenting. The main thing is to keep the anger out of the equation, to focus on what you hope the spank will do.Stepping out of your comfort zone is always exhilarating, but don't force yourself to do things that make you feel uncomfortable. Instead, we need kids to know that it’s not only okay– and normal –to make mistakes , but that those mistakes also help them make better choices in the future. This was usually a quick swat on the behind to get them to take a breath and so I could get their attention.

The word parenting comes from the root word pere, which means “to bring forth, give birth to, produce. The setting where the timeout takes place isn’t as important as the fact you are tying the misbehavior to the consequence. Over the years I have talked to a few guys about this subject and it is generally remembered with an almost nostalgic air. While advocates of spanking usually insist there is a difference between spanking and abuse, it’s important to note these studies did look solely at spanking and not other forms of corporal abuse.

I have no problem with parents working; my mom and dad always worked 40+ hours per week, and thank goodness my grandparents were capable of looking after me when my parents were making ends meet. This means the kid who always causes trouble and seems SO bad and is SO easy to blame–doesn’t need to be berated or spanked.

Unfortunately, each of us enters this world with desires that are selfish, unkind, and harmful to others and ourselves. When a parent sees their toddler reaching for the wall socket, they might give them a pop on the hand so they associate it with pain before they experience the real and dangerous pain they otherwise would. Along those lines, we caution parents who have a hard time controlling their temper to choose alternative forms of discipline. Talking can help clarify the situation: either helping the child realize why their decision was a bad one or helping you realize that your child didn't misbehave after all. Sure, someone may be holding your arm and you may be doing your best to get away, but still, you take your licks and move on.It is unfair that he has to deliver billions of presents while the rest of the world enjoys their vacation time. There are other much more effective ways to discipline our children that won’t lead them to believe they’re “bad kids” or make them feel unnecessarily shamed. In the same way that doctors don’t encourage alcohol consumption during pregnancy, psychologists certainly don’t recommend the use of spanking.
