Reality Check

Ok I have to speak of this ...

A new Canadian study claims that "spanking" children leads to:
emotional problems
Antisocial behavior
Lower IQ
abusive relationships
domestic abuse
Drug abuse
Juvenile delinquency


I think some one is doing some correlating of unrelated stuff again ...


First - there is a huge difference between a spanking and a beating ...

Studies have shown that children who grow up in an abusive home ARE more likely to live in one as an adults ... the child who is the same gender as the abuser tend to also be the abuser in their homes.

HOWEVER - a spanking is not a beating ...

I'm beating that they took a bunch of people and asked where you spanked? And then those who said yes they asked hear other questions ...

It would be interesting to see if they also did this for those who would have answered no to the spanking issue as well.

The problem is -- all the information I have on the study is coming filtered through news agencies and I'm sure that the information that they are getting has been filtered as well

I'm gonna keep am eye in this one ...
