Child experts argue that spanking is lazy parenting. We do it when we're angry or when we're frustrated. We do it when we want our children to stop what they're doing this very moment. But, as with other things, no permanent change is instant. Hitting your child may kee
them off doing something temporarily, but then they tend to focus on the pain of the hit and not so much on what they've done wrong. Your children need better discipline than that.
