Spanking Your Child Could Lead To Mental Illness?

WOW! When I first read this I was in shock. Spanking/disciplining your child is apart of life. As the Bible says: "Spare the rod, spoil the child" and I must say my mom was a firm believer in that.

In today's society, they make it damn near illegal for you to discipline your child and now studies are saying that spanking your child could cause mental illness? Are they serious? I mean you would really have to be beating the hell out of your child, literally, to cause mental damage. Check out what they study had to say.

From Yourblackworld.net:

A new study published in Monday’s Journal of the American Academy Of Pediatrics found that children who are spanked are at a higher risk for developing mental problems.

The study surveyed 35,000 people, and found that 2 to 7 percent of mental disorders are linked to physical punishment.

The author says the study is evidence physical punishment shouldn’t ever be used on any child. The debate is still ongoing, however, because some people still maintain spanking can be effective if done correctly.

When I was growing up, I didn't get many spankings because I just didn't like them, but I DID get them. I consider myself to be in very good mental health and so are my siblings as well. Discipline is necessary for children, I mean how else will they learn right from wrong. That's what's wrong today is that too many parents are trying to be their child's friend instead of the parent. Then they get out into the real world thinking they can do what they want, when they want and the world puts a spanking on that ass they never forget.

So, do you believe this study or do you think it's bogus? What are you thoughts???
