Managing a child’s behavior is one of the biggest challenges parents face. Many parents think that physical punishment is an acceptable form of discipline with more than two-thirds of American adults agreeing or strongly agreeing that children sometimes need a “good hard spanking.” That is according to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
Spanking may work temporarily to stop children’s problem behaviors, but it may not change their behavior in the long run and can potentially develop into Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder or PTSD symptoms.
