June 27, 2008 --

Submitted by: JL Reed, Student, University of Oregon


I will not argue whether it’s nobler in the eyes of children to receive a scolding rather than a swat on the rear-end; however, I will ask whether it’s wiser in the minds of parents to discipline with methods other than spanking.
