How You Lose Authority When You Spank

Push back against anyone who is anti-spanking is inevitable considering a majority of parents in America still spank their children. “In 2014, according to a nationally representative survey, 76 percent of men, and 65 percent of women, 18 to 65 years old, agreed that a child sometimes needs a “good hard spanking.” This proportion has declined modestly since 1986 among women, while approval among males, after declining into the early 1990’s, has remained steady.”(1) Let me preface this…

Why Spanking Your Child is Abuse

This title may seem a bit profound, because it is. I want the idea of using physical force against a child to be viewed one way and one way only, wrong. One of my moral principles is “you don’t use force against me, I don’t use force against you”.
