I got a few as Elementary School but don't remember what lead to any of them. <br />
I have recently seen studies linking it to aggression, emotional issues later in life and strained parental relations. <br />
I haven't had a very high opinion of my mom and have recently realized that said spankings were the foundation of it.<br />
I can think of several parents here that I wish I could drill the results of these studies into their heads and be like "look at what you are setting your children up for"
I stopped when they were 10. If they dont know the rules and what will happen by then, spanking isn't going to help anymore.<br />
However they are 22 and 24 now and I STILL feel the urge to smack them upside the head sometimes.
