Debate Round No. 1


Debate dot org is freaking broken. Don't put underscores or weird letters. And put one link to a google doc that shows sources.


You should not hit your own children. When I say should not, I mean that it is, On balance, More harmful to do so than it is not to.
Hit meaning physical harm. A little slap to the bum is obviously not child abuse. Taking a baseball bat and swinging it at your kid's bum is pretty bad. Therefore, Hit is anything that intentionally ruptures and/or damages human tissue. If my opponent doesn't agree with this, I'll concede the debate and we can call it a tie and go home.

Argument 1: It's harmful

"April 28, 2016 - UPDATE ON WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HIT YOUR KIDS: Fifty years of research involving over 160, 000 children shows unequivocally that spanking is not only ineffective as a form of discipline, But is detrimental to the mental health of children and adults.
