The indictment of NFL player Adrian Peterson by a Texas grand jury for reckless or negligent injury to a child has generated an extensive discussion in the media on the topic of disciplining children by "spanking," or corporeal punishment, as commonly practiced in our society. The Peterson case is, of course, extreme--but not necessarily uncommon. He used a "switch," a slim, leafless tree branch, to beat his 4-year-old son, raising welts on the youngster's legs, buttocks and scrotum, but millions of Americans--by far the majority of the over generations--can testify to being "spanked," or in some cases "beaten," with belts, switches, cords, and other objects that left their markings on legs and buttocks. Spanking in one form or another is as American as apple pie--and the practice is deeply rooted in, and most often defended by, a reading of traditional translations of the English Bible.

Use Loving Discipline When Spanking
The latest research from Dr. Murray Strauss at the Family Research Laboratory affirms that spanking teaches children to use acts of aggression and violence to solve their problems. It only teaches and perpetuates more violence, the very thing our society is so concerned about. This research further shows that children who have been spanked are more prone to low self-esteem, depression and accept lower paying jobs as adults.
Back in the day, I was terrified of doing something bad because I knew I would get a spanking. It was the easiest way to settle my brother and I down, and teach us what was wrong and what was right. Well, according to a study by the Journal of Pediatrics , research showed that spanking your child may be setting them to become violent toward future partners.
