STUDY: Spanking Kids Ineffective When Not Used Properly

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

A new study from Southern Methodist University says spanking your kids might not be very effective. According to the study, children who were hit for their wrongdoing misbehaved within 10 minutes of being punished.

At the heart of the issue was parents not adhering to recommended best practices when it comes to corporal punishment. Parents were recorded spanking in anger, for minor infractions and not as a last resort. 

Best practices for corporal punishment call for reserving the act for times when there is serious misbehavior and as a last resort.
