Every legitimate organization in the child development industry is against spanking. Intelligent parents can find the resources necessary to avoid spanking. It is proven not proven to be effective, does not produce respected and respectful children and carries with it an unacceptable risk for physical and emotional damage. To listen to Rosemond is tantamount to taking advice from a pedophile, not advisable. To use God as an excuse to hit your children is inexecusable. Same on you, John Rosemond - Jesus will be waiting for you on Judgement Day!
