American College of Pediatricians Questions Validity of Spanking Study
Date:3/4/2008

GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American College of Pediatricians challenges the results of a negatively biased report on the effects of spanking recently released by Murray Straus, a leading opponent of the use of disciplinary spanking. His claim that spanking is linked to sexual problems in teens and adults is premature and unfounded. In fact, the study did not limit its investigation to the common use of ordinary spanking by loving parents with preschool children, but once again included the irresponsible use of abusive forms of corporal punishment with "children 13 years and older." As a practice, Straus discovers detrimental results by including in his research unreasonable practices of physical punishment by irrational parents used with children at inappropriately older ages.
