Childhood punishments such as spanking, slapping, and hitting – even in the absence of full-scale maltreatment – are associated with an increased risk of mental disorders in adulthood, researchers reported.

Adults who reported such punishments in their childhood had a greater risk of mood disorders, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug abuse dependence, and several personality disorders, according to Tracie Afifi, PhD, of the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, and colleagues.

Maybe they're looking for a way to medicate this too. Drug companies sponsored the research?

Maybe they are referring to a different type of spanking sha! The ones I got as a child was as a direct result of when I had misbehaved, and in hindsight, I deserve them... lol...the things I put my folks through! And to balance it too, my folks didnt just spank me for the heck of it...again, it was for gross misbehaviour, which I was part of, often...and no, I dont have mental health issues!

actually, yes, i am.
you don't believe in spanking, i believe in spanking.
there is a difference between abuse, and spanking.

I don't want to get into an argument on this, sidney.

on a lighter note, I'm willing to submit myself for a mental evaluation to determine if all the spankings i got as a child has resulted in a mental illness i am not aware of.

Are you guys saying this is rubbish?

Look, I was f-ing WHOOPED!! When I say whooped, I mean WHOOPED!! I was slapped, punched and beating routinely with canes, but mostly with twisted electric cords! Sadly I am not joking...... I still have physical scars from them, that are visible today. But I am no crazier than I would have been if I wasn't corporal punished.

But to say that physically beating someone leaves ill no effect on the person is silly.. It does.....

Now, the margin of effect, is debatable. There is a reason why adults are no longer physically assaulted in workplaces and higher education. If you were slapped at work every time you did something wrong it would change who you were. Why are children any different? Do you think beating, no matter how small, has NO adverse affect on them? Are they not human?

The level this report goes I am not sure about, but it is not total rubbish.....
