Spanking Linked to Mental Illness, Says Study

See: A Lesson They Will Never Forget [Video]Although the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly discourages spanking, at least half of parents admit to physically punishing their children. Some research suggests that as many as 70-90 percent of mothers have resorted to spanking at one time or another. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics may cause parents to think more carefully before laying a hand on their little ones.

Researchers examined data from more than 34,000 adults and found that being spanked significantly increased the risk of developing mental health issues as adults. According to their results, corporal punishment is associated with mood disorders, including depression and anxiety, as well as personality disorders and alcohol and drug abuse. They estimate that as much as 7 percent of adult mental illness may be attributable to childhood physical punishment, including slapping, shoving, grabbing, and hitting. The study reports that spanking ups the risk of major depression by 41 percent, alcohol and drug abuse by 59 percent, and mania by 93 percent, among other findings.

213250 Article does not exist any longer. It is written in the junk science lingo. It was published in a magazine with three hot girls on the cover. It is a part of PR campaign, because you can find the same trash all over.

I do not understand the issue so I checked a little. Parents who beat their toddlers are mentally and emotionally retarded, that's for sure. But sovereign man do use a force to discipline themselves and their family. This is a right and a duty. If you are a healthy person and do it right, everybody will thank you in the end.

You have the right to touch your child as a healthy, attentive and balanced parent. Even though media is trying to implant a different meme into your skull. You have the right to touch your child as a healthy, attentive and balanced parent.

213250 Couple more things. Despite his intelligence and insight into certain issues Molyneux obviously has some problems understanding discipline and human purpose. Or he is a shill, I don't have the time to verify this.

What is wrong about you Chris is this: "Meanwhile, a child is like 30 pounds, they can't do anything to any adult ever, to restrain them and prevent violence is as easy as pie, there is no reason to make the leap from exercising restraint to carrying out violence yourself." It looks you don't have children or they're locked in a safe place. You're not qualified to reason about this subject.

And the third thing that is wrong here is Alfie Kohn. I believe he is a great father. And he would even be a greater mother. Unfortunately child needs a mother and a father, not two mothers. A healthy person must be taught about love and about aggression. Attractive emotions as well as the power to enforce one's personal boundaries are qualities of healthy people.

I am not Alife, I do not write books about education and sit around with kids all day. My children visit school, play in the neighbourhood, they catch nasty habits and I beat these nasty habits out of them in the limited time at my disposal. Sometimes with application of diplomacy and sometimes with my bare hands. If they do something really nasty they get a slap over their naked ass. I can't believe this even hurts, but they take it to their hearts. Not so much as if they must hold their hands, but that's another story.

I was beaten by my parents, and it hurt, but I have no emotions about it. Just as my children have no emotions about hits with sticks, stones, tables, fridges and knife cuts they caused to themselves. What hurts more, an occasional slap by a loving parent or long hours of carnal torture by piano keys, guitar strings or running shoes? It is not a sensible question. And what is worse, getting an educational hit with a cooking utensil or live long years in a realization that your parents do not understand you, that they secretly despise your very character, but they're such pussies that they're even afraid to express that somehow?

Aggression is a part of life. Abuse of aggression is a sign of a sick person or society. Scare of aggression is a characteristic of a person being reared mostly by a mother. Or two of them.
