Here is the problem with the study. There is no control group, and they are
relying on people who are different to have the same attributes.How
do they know that spanking redues IQ. Maybe children with lower IQ misbehave
more often. It seems that this study has a very questionable methodology used
to determine the results. I would not be suprised if the researchers already
had their conclusion written, then fit the data to meet their desired results.

I know; is that I have never spanked any of my children; and all three of them
are honor students in the top of their class.Testing places them in the
top 1% of the country.They were disciplined; I just never saw the need to
assault a child.
