This researcer believes that spanking a 5-year old will lead to behavior problems in school. According to her research, kids spanked as 5-year olds were more likely to create problems for teachers later in elementary school.
What do you think? I was spanked as a kid and turned out pretty good. (quit laughing) I think it depends on the child. Later on, all my mom had to do was look at me, and I would straighten up pretty quick. -kZ
