It’s an age-old debate: Is spanking an effective way to control your child’s behavior?
Not according to a new study by a psychology professor at Southern Methodist University.
The spanking study followed 37 families. The mothers voluntarily recorded their evening interactions with their children over the course of six days. The results may surprise you.
Dr. George Holden led the study and joined News 8’s Shelly Slater to talk about his findings.
