Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child. Is This a Sensible Justification for the Use of Punishment in Child Rearing?
Carey, Timothy A.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n12 p1005-10 Dec 1994
This discussion of punishment in child rearing examines the Bible proverb, defines punishment, and identifies criteria necessary for effective punishment. It also considers negative effects of punishment and cultures where corporal punishment has been banned. Alternatives to punishment are discussed, and an alternative form of the proverb is offered.
