Spanking Kids May Lead Them to Violent Dating Relationships
06 December 2017, 04:55 | Silvia Roy
It's a decision many parents grapple with: should you spank your kids?
Directed by Jeff Temple, a partner teacher at University of Texas, the investigation analyzed 758 individuals in the vicinity of 19 and 20 years of age, finding that the individuals who got physical train from their folks submitted "dating violence" at a higher rate, CNN revealed Tuesday. Nearly two-thirds said they were spanked as kids, and 19 percent of them admitted to dating violence. They asked them about their childhood experiences, physical abuse and their current experiences with dating violence.
Those who were given corporal punishment as children are 29% more likely to extend that abuse into their dating life, a new study from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston says. Nineteen percent of study participants reported having acted violently in a dating situation (and that's just the reported stats). "Corporal punishment is frightening and detrimental to a child", she says.
Other researchers have found evidence that corporal punishment can be beneficial, however. The researchers found a "significant positive association" between spanking and committing dating violence as adults, even after they controlled for things like sex, ethnicity, age, parents' education, and childhood physical abuse.
"They might see that as an OK way to resolve conflicts in their adolescent relationships or their adult relationships", Dr. Temple said.
