Children need to be spanked when they act out of line. So do animals. Animals are instinctive creatures. A momma bear will spank her cub when it misbehaves! We should do the same for small children. Human children act instinctively at such a young age (children meaning 4 or younger) too. They should get spanked when they misbehave so they can know that it is unacceptable behavior because they are unable to fully grasp the magnitude of their misbehaving actons!


Spanking can cause damage to the children and their intelligence [1].

As for animals, they won't change their behavior because they cannot link punishment with action.;
