Should I spank my child?

The short answer is no. When your child misbehaves or acts in defiant, inappropriate, or even dangerous ways, you want to show him his behavior is unacceptable and must change. Spanking may seem like a direct and effective way to do that, but it delivers other messages you don't want to send:

One of the bad thing of physical discipline is that your children can be scared of you and when the need someone to confide in they will not be able to confide in you because they will be scared.
