Children who are smacked when young are more likely to be successful, study finds

Children who are smacked when young are more likely to be successful, study finds

Disciplined: Children who have been physically admonished at a young age performed better on all counts.

Children who are smacked by parents often turn out more successful than those who have not, research has found.

The study concluded that children who had been physically disciplined when they were young, between the ages of 2 and 6, were performing better as teenagers on almost every measure that was taken into consideration than those who had never been smacked.

It was only in cases where it continued beyond the age of 12 that the children were found to be affected negatively, resulting in a dip on performance indicators.

The results of the US-based study undermines the efforts of various campaigners who have been trying to have physical punishment outlawed in the UK, who have claimed that it causes long-term damage to the children.

Currently, UK law allows parents to chastise their children as long as it does not leave a physical mark such as a bruise - the government has said it is reluctant to criminalise parents purely for disciplining their children with the best of intentions.

'The claims made for not spanking children failed to hold up. They are not consistent with the data,' Marjorie Gunnoe, professor of psychology at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, told the Sunday Times.

'I think of spanking as a dangerous tool, but there are times when there is a job big enough for a dangerous tool - you just don't use it for all your jobs,' she added.

Gunnoe, who lead the research, said 2,600 people were reviewed, of whom about a quarter had never been smacked.

It also included detailed interviews of about 179 teenagers who were asked how old they were when they were last smacked and how often they were smacked as a child.

She then looked at many outcomes parents generally night want for their teenage children such as academic rank, volunteer work, college aspirations, hope for the future, and confidence in their ability to earn a living when they grow up.

It emerged that those who had been spanked just when they were young were doing a little better as teenagers than those who’d never been spanked on almost every measure.

Research of this kind is rare, given that physical punishment was not viewed as taboo until fairly recently.

However, in a recent poll, more than 70% of Britons said they would support children's charities in imposing a ban on hitting of any kind as a form of discipline.

Agree. I know of someone who was never been beated up by parents, but rather, consoled patiently. Still, he became successful in buiness.

its this kind of article that destroys the child's childhood & memories because some parents might think it will worked on the child.Parents should keep the child's childhood memories healthy that's what i believe in.

actually, there is some logic to it.. kids 2-6 is sometimes too young to understand reasoning, and forget rules.. smacking reasonably simply helps to stop the child from doing wat he/she is not supposed to do, set boundaries..

by the time or 6 and above, the child is old enough for good self restrain, and developed their own ego and dignity.. physical punishment might injure their ego, thus making them rebellious..

This is so true. I wish my mom had smacked me harder because I think I'm too pampered.

I agree that children need to be spanked whenever they commit wrongdoings. However, the spanking must not be too much for the child to bear. I've read similar findings from http://bit.ly/5xB5Au. It's really tough love when parents discipline their child by spanking.
