Study claims smacking kids causes mental illness

Children who were smacked are more likely to suffer from mental health problems in later life, a controversial study has claimed.

But questions have been raised about the study’s methods and the results do not actually provide any evidence that smacking causes mental illness.

The study, which was published in an anti-smacking group’s journal, claimed that two to seven per cent of mental disorders could be attributed to “harsh physical punishment”.

San Jose John, it's definitely not sarcasm. I "whoop" my daughter, not so much anymore at age 7, because she has adjusted to the rules of the house in her very early years. Please don't take this as bragging because I believe this is just how it is suppose to be....yes sir, no sir, yes ma'am, no ma'am, thank you, please...etc. You know, "manners". She seems like an odd child because of her mannerism in today's world. The world needs MORE "whoopin' parents" (key element: whoop for correction and not out of anger)

Sarcasm or not, you may be more right than you realize

The father of two of my childhood friends spanked them when they were young, but when they became teenagers he would literally punch them in the shoulder twice when they misbehaved. Their "man's man" of a father would warn them ahead of time saying they would receive what he called "two shots in the shoulder" if they misbehaved. Though I would never recommend this method of discipline for just any kid it certainly worked for my friends who grew up to be fine, well-adjusted--and VERY tough, successful athletic adults.

Everybody's different. Problem is we live in an increasingly rationalized culture that too often seeks a one-size-fits-all "solution" to our problems. Obamacare being a prime example of this.

"The study, which was published in an anti-smacking group’s journal, claimed that two to seven per cent of mental disorders could be attributed to 'harsh physical punishment'".

I wonder if this means the remaining 93 to 98% of mental disorders could be attributed to lack of discipline?

"The study’s author, Tracie Afifi, claimed it “definitely points to the direction that physical punishment should not be used on children of any age”.

Absolute rubbish and politically correct bunkum.

I was chastised by spanking as a child and have experience nil mental health issues during my entire life. I can also see that is the experience of my neighbours and generations of people.

The people whom I have most observed in our country with real mental health issues are invariably lefty liberals, who are destroying authority, morals, family and decency in the community.
Many of them are politicians and bishops busily destroying society and its institutions. From such as these comes the anti-smacking brigade.

Depends on how you do it. If you hit the kid without warning, and THEN tell them what they did to "deserve" it, you're probably going to have a messed-up kid who'll spend the rest of his or her life afraid of their own shadow. On the other hand, if you lay out the rules first and show them where they went wrong before hitting them, your kid will probably turn out well, since they'll know that there are limits and to look for them before messing up in life.

This generation has virtually no disciplining of children and an explosion of mental illness.

The data would support an INVERSE correlation to the one they think they have found.

Follow the money ...
