There are better ways to punish a child than a spanking. Spanking is something that we have kept on using because we think it helps, but it does not. Instead of spanking a child, slap them really hard on the face. This horrid practice must end, if we are to become more intelligent.
Sometimes violence is the only way to have a child to be disciplined. This is mainly because children have no learned enough about the world to know the consequences for their actions. Violence is the only thing they can feel at the moment, they do not have the experiences that can lead to terrible results. This is why spanking should be placed in every parent and guardian's repertoire in educating their children.
