When parents spank their kids, they’ll often tell them, "This hurts me more than it hurts you." But a new study shows that’s actually not true.
A University of Texas at Austin and University of Michigan study has confirmed what child psychologists have been saying for years: Spanking is bad for kids.
Researchers looked at 50 years of data from 75 different studies involving more than 160,000 children and determined that spanking children actually makes them more likely to act up again.
