Dating and spanking
"Not only is this an ineffective strategy for changing behavior or resolving conflict, our study and other research show that physical punishment negatively impacts the short and long-term health and behavior of children."The American Academy of Pediatrics advocates for alternatives to spanking such as taking away privileges, time-outs and letting natural consequences unfold.
Researchers in the study, lead-authored by Jeff Temple of the University of Texas Medical Branch, asked 758 young adults how often they were physically punished with spankings, slappings or beatings involving objects. Those who were given corporal punishment as children are 29% more likely to extend that abuse into their dating life, a new study from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston says.The study, which was published in the Journal of Pediatrics on Tuesday, looked at over 750 19- and 20-year-olds and asked them if they’d been spanked when they were younger.Many factors besides spanking can add to dating violence, the university noted, including mental health, substance abuse and attitudes toward women.Still, the study's authors emphasize corporal punishment a possible risk factor for such violence."Corporal punishment is communicating to children that violence is an acceptable means of changing behavior," Temple said.
