To spank or not to spank? This age-old parenting question elicits fierce debate among parents, psychologists and pediatricians. Surveys suggest that nearly half of U. Other scientists counter that research on the issue is fraught with problems, making it impossible to draw black-and-white conclusions. A new meta-analysis addresses several of the most contentious points in the debate and concludes that spanking does pose risks, but differences of opinion persist.

What Science Says—and Doesn't—about Spanking

When my mother had her first child my grandmother visited her in the hospital and gave her a wooden spanking paddle. I heard my mother tell this story again and again throughout my childhood to justify her use of corporal punishment. As a child, I was determined never to spank my children. When I became a pediatrician, I took care of toddlers who ultimately died from corporal punishment.


I see varying responses to this question in different parenting forums. While psychologists talk about the ill-effects of spanking, some people say they were spanked as a child and they believe they turned out to be okay. I think that belief leads many people to continue with spanking. I have kids aged 8 and 5 and I do not resort to spanking for disciplining them, thanks to the parenting articles and books I read early on in my parenthood journey.
