    Re: Parents: Punishing Kids

    My grandad whipped us very rarely. He did it with his belt. He never did it at the moment we angered him. He would make us go sit in his room until he was not at all angry anymore, then he would come in and explain what we had done and the effect it had. Then he would give us between 1 and 3 (never more than three) swats with the belt.

    The whipping had no more effect than to punctuate how rotten we felt from the disappointment Grandad expressed in our behavior.

In case you're not aware being depressed as a child is the worst time in your life for it to happen.
    And this comes from? So I can see it for myself?

    And it is all speculation at this point as psychology is not an exact science. For instance "it may cause a decrease in grey matter." Or so says the numerous reports I saw. Using extreme language with no links does little to reinforce your position.

    This also shows the agenda...

    Debates around physical punishment typically revolve around the ethics of using violence to enforce discipline. This inquiry synthesized 20 years of published research on the topic and aims to "shift the ethical debate over corporal punishment into the medical sphere - How Spanking Harms the Brain | Psychology Today

    Now where have I heard that before? Oh yea... The gun debate.

    A lot of "if's" in that.
