Will spanking make your child successful or will they be ruined?


According to Calvin College psychology professor Dr. Marjorie Gunnoe, spanking children under the age of 6 can make them happier and more successful later in life. Gunnoe questioned 2,600 people, a quarter of whom had never been spanked, about everything from academic success to their optimism about the future and found that those who had been disciplined with spanking between the ages of 2 and 6 faired best in all categories. By contrast, those spanked past age 6 faired the worst. Is it time for parents to reclaim spanking as a healthy way to punish young children?

Discipline, not spanking, helps children mature: The study proves that spanking isn’t “the bugaboo that many people make of it,” says Doug Payton in Blogger News. But if you ask me, it’s not the “actual spanking” that helps children grow up successful. It’s “the willingness on the part of parents to set limits on children not ready for complete freedom.”

“Spank your kids, make them happy”

This confirms what pro-spanking parents have been saying all along: At last, parents who believe in “corporal punishment” have “relief” from studies claiming that spanking is harmful, says Selwyn Duke in the New American.
