Sorry. Can't resist posting this article, Smacking hits kids' IQ.
So you swat the kiddies and their IQ drops about 5 points. Really? Just the 5? I'm trying to figure the down side here.
Later the article admits that really, reading to the kiddies is most important. So what is the over and under on smacking while reading to them? Inquiring minds want to know.
Dear children: I smacked you often, but we also had great times together reading quality literature. The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the The Big Hungry Bear.
If I smack the kid every other page?
