Anyone can produce a study that shows something that is going to support the study. LIke I said, I’m sure if I looked hard enough, I could find a study that says the reason why Sweedish children don’t need spanked is because they are all breastfed and formula is only avaliable with a RX. Then what? People are going to jump all over the formula vs breastfeeding debate. “Well, if 9 million people can be well adjusted because of breastfeeding, I don’t see why ANYONE would choose to use formula!” lol
“I’m just saying that, though there ARE other ways to decipline your kids, sometimes spanking works best and that it’s not always the parents fault how the kids turn out.” – Interesting thought.
I might be wrong on this, but so might you guys, as I said earlier, we may just have to agree to disagree. Now, on to the dresses thread!
Spanking is illegal in Israel. That country is totally messed up. Therefore not spanking must result in totally messed up kids.
You can’t really say that what makes Sweden a great country is the fact that it opted to ban spanking in 1979. Sweden cannot be compared to the US because of HUGE things like the fact that 88% of the population is Lutheran, or that there is a national police force. Conversely, you can’t say the US is messed up because it allows spankings…
I’m not sure how Sweden because the “golden child” in this discussion. I actually live here and it is not this wonderful utopia with perfect citizens and children. In the last month there has been a child randomly grabbed off the back of his mother’s bike by a stranger and held hostage for 2 hrs with a knife to his throat…wonder if he was spanked as a child? There was a shooter that was randomly shooting people after dark, not killing them but wounding them…wonder if he was spanked? Maybe they were, maybe they weren’t. I see bratty children on the street everyday that talk back to their parents, lay down on the street, kicking and screaming.
You cannot compare a country of 9 million people that have always had a socialistic govt that has always told them what to do and they seem lost if they aren’t told what to do to a country of 300 million with a population known for its independent thinking. No one can definitively say one way works and another doesn’t. Everyone needs to back off the use of words barbaric, abusive, etc…of course that’s going to offend the people that do spank.
This post was NOT about if its OK to spank, it was about WILL you spank.
I voted never. My parents never spanked me.. I think my dad did once, but that’s because when I was little I climbed up on the stove when it was on!
I think if you read my comment through, you would notice that I said ‘for fun’, and that my point was that none of the ‘studies’ quoted so far are conclusive, nor is touting Sweden as an example appropriate since the outlawing of spanking has not actually deterred parents who spank their children, all it has done is seen their actions reclassified as abuse.
I am well aware of what Newsmax is thank you, I was just letting you know what happens when you hit google + spanking + children.
