Spanking vs. Child Abuse

Posted by Sandra On August - 27 - 2010

spanking toddlers

Corporal punishment. Now that’s one nasty, knee jerk, flashpoint of a topic. It’s maligned by many and praised by others. It’s even been known to ruin a few marriages.

I am relatively new to parenting, having been a mom for all of 19 months; therefore, I haven’t encountered a situation that would call for me to haul off and hit my child. But when it comes to discipline, there are two things I know for sure, and a couple of other things I’m not so sure about. One, spanking a child without them understanding why you’re doing so is abusive. And two, slapping a child across the face — especially a toddler — is parenting by humiliation.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
