  1. No, you smack them on the butt take the legos away and let them cry. No wonder we see these teens with opositional defiant disorder. Then they end up in the psych units due to parents not smacking them when they are younger…NOT BEATING…..big difference. Kids of my generation got smacked and we also respected authority. Never knew one kid dragged out of school going to a psych unit in my school.

    1. Thank you for sharing a thought on this matter. Spanking can be a controversial topic, as there are so many factors contributing to whether one uses this method as a means to train a toddler, young child, preteen or teenager.
      A number of behavioral and emotional issues do have a biological/biochemical contributor, but social learning plays its part as well. Children tend to learn what they pick up from their environments and then model this behavior, especially when the conditions to do so are right. A number of disorders/ disturbances where uncontrolled anger/aggression, defiance, vandalism, bullying, lack of appreciation for the laws, are manifestations for what is depicted in the media, video games, community practices etc.
      Now individuals do have a choice as to whether they spank their children or not in some countries/ cities etc, but we should be guided by data or researched information.
