Spanking has largely fallen out of favor among parents, but some still swear by it. Proponents of spanking say children need discipline to become well-adjusted adults and spanking should be an available tool for parents to teach respect. Spare the rod, spoil the child. But critics say spanking is ineffective and akin to child abuse. Many child behavior specialists also believe spanking erodes trust with adults. No one wants to be physically assaulted.
