New Study: Spanked Kids = Messed-Up Grownups

My brother is a big proponent of this, having written the book, "Stop Spanking Now." How do they figure that? 3 to 7% of mental disorders are "caused" by spanking? I don't even know what that means. they say we create addiction in our kids by spanking. I was spanked but I KNOW that did not cause addiction in me. It's a brain chemistry disorder--maybe it made me want to do drugs--but didn't cause the disease any more than spanking causes diabetes--but maybe it makes them want to eat comfort food. Geeze I hate this kind of study.

take alook for yourself
New Study: Spanked Kids = Messed-Up Grownups: "Canadian researchers using data from nearly 35,000 American adults found that from 2 percent to 7 percent of mental disorders were attributable to physical punishment. To many experts, including Cyndi Scott, executive director of the Coalition Against Child Abuse and Neglect, the findings reinforce what they already know about spanking.
"It's not going to be beneficial to the child, or to the parent, for them to use any kind of physical force. So, we would not recommend people hitting children.""
