If spanking is useful in creating better adults why aren't more adults better?
Over 70% of parents now spank, in the 80's 90% spanked. When something bad happens involving a child people are quick to say the child needs their "butt whipped" "spanked", etc. So since most of the population were spanked why hasn't this created better generations? If spanking is the solution wouldn't we have a nation of well behaved teens and 20 somethings?
Where did you get your statistics about 70% of parents now spank? I would beg to differ. Nowadays, kids are spoiled, and parents are afraid to spank their children or to discipline them in any way that can cause emotional pain, such as a cold shower.
