Related 6 Comments it’s not going away, because there is no such thing as “non-physical” punishing (or discipline, or “consequences”) and parents learn that the hard way, IRL. The only meaningful question is Punish or Not. There is no in between, which no-one seems to be willing to say. LikeLike What about time outs? What about grounding? It was just something that I was researching. My question is does spanking lead to more abusive relationships later in life? LikeLike just don’t punish at all, you’d be amazed how good life is when you don’t make enemies of your children. Any sort of punishing needs to be forced, you need to MAKE it happen somehow. We might THINK we want to impose some punishment that isn’t physical, but if the kid isn’t into it, the fight to make it happen too often becomes physical, and really quickly, too. “Non-physical punishment.discipline/consequences” is a stupid myth, sold by fools, to fools. It’s all or nothing. All might be slightly more straight-forward and honest than the unworkable half-measures of “Positive parenting,” but of course, no punishing at all is the best. LikeLike Good idea!!! LikeLike Great article, thanks. ” . . . there have not been any longitudinal studies dividing children into “spanked” and “non-spanked” groups and tracking any emotional and behavioral consequences over time.” – Ha! That’s because for reasons stated above, there is no “non-spanked” group to study. Yet, at least. LikeLike That is true. LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
