To Spank or Not to Spank
Do you spank your children? A new study out shows spanking might come back to bite you later on. A survey, conducted by Tulane University found those who reported spanking their children more than twice in the past month had more agressive five year olds. The same was true even after researchers accounted for other factors, like alcohol use at home and stressed parents. Pediatricians recommend against spanking, but surveys show most parents, about 90-percent, approve of spanking as a form of punishment.
